Hello everyone,

 

I have a question about evidence for the I-601 waiver. I am the United States Citizen (petitioner) and starting to finalize all the evidence needed for this waiver. So with I-130 we had a co-sponsor that was approved,  do we need to include the co-sponsors evidence- I-864 and their information in the waiver packet? OR is that unnecessary information to include in it? 

 

I would be grateful for anybody's help.

 

Thank You!

There is no such thing as a co or joint sponsor for an I-130. I think you're referring to the I-864 (which would have been provided at NVC).

Nothing from an I-864 sponsor applies to an I-601.

Hello,

 

Yes cosponsor and joint sponsors do exist or it would have never been approved for anyone who doesn't have enough money to sponsor their spouse. The whole process of the I-130 and at NVC wouldn't have approved if I didn't have the cosponsor.  My co-sponsor had to fill out the I-864 so I was curious of USCIS wants to know that for the waiver packet and I wasn't sure if that needs to be included. 

 

Thank you for your help.

You're confusing the I-864 - provided at NVC - and the I-130 - provided to USCIS initially. There is no co sponsor for an I-130. There is no financial information required with the I-130.

Okay I understand. It has been a long process for me and I am very stressed getting everything together for this waiver so please understand where I am coming from.

 

I just would like to know if the co-sponsor information I provided at NVC would need to be submitted for the I-601 waiver. Thank you.  

 

I am trying to find enough evidence to be included in this waiver. If you have any other tips for what to include in my waiver. It would be much appreciated.

 

Thank you again.

No, nothing from a joint sponsor is required with the waiver. The waiver only needs the I-601, payment, and evidence supporting the extreme hardship being claimed.
