Household Members

Hi Family!

 

I had a quick question, my mother lives with me, but she has her own income, so I don't financially support her. I do pay for all the bills etc. Would I need to list her as part of my household? As it stands I have my son, my fiance and I. I make fairly well over the 125% (unfortunately not the 250% but I do have good medical) I just don't want to get in trouble down the road for not listing her. Thanks!

if you claim her as a dependent on your tax return, then you  need to list her as household member. That is my interpretation. Someone smarter than me may have a different answer. 

I don't. She has her own income, so I don't think it would be right to claim her. Thank you!

If she lives with you, you must include her regardless of whether she has her own income or not. This is directly from USCIS:

I did say someone smarter would come along.

You don't claim her.

 

Per the I-864 instructions: 

 

Part 5. Sponsor’s Household Size Add together the number of persons for whom you are financially responsible.
