I-864 Household Size Question

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I have a question about the I-864 household size question, specifically Part 5, #7. I am petitioning only for my husband. I will be using my dad as a joint sponsor. He will be filling out I-1864 and my mom will be filling out I-864A because they are married and file jointly, not because we need her to declare any more income. We will be living with my parents until we get settled into the US. For #7 "If you have siblings, parents, or adult children with the same principal residence who are combining their income with yours by submitting Form I-864A, enter the number here:" Would it be 1 (my dad), 2 (my mom and dad) or 0 considering my dad is filing the I-864, and my mom is only filing the I-864A because I have read they sometimes request it, not because we need her income? I am assuming I have to put someone there as my income alone is not enough to sponsor for my husband as I have been living abroad. I understand that I only count my husband once and no one else (no children or dependents) but am confused about this section. 

 

Many thanks!

hi

 

exactly, you aren't currently living with your parents

 

so your dad files the i864 as you stated

 

so you fill out your i864 with 2, and if your dad doesn't have any other dependents, the household size for your dad is 3

Because you are not their dependent.
