Me (F1 student) and fiance (LPR) are getting married this week. We are planning on filing next week and are currently filling out forms and joining bank accounts, etc.

While filling form i-864 we got confused because she (last year made 14k) can`t be the only sponsor, we are moving in together at her parents house and counting me the household consists of 5 people, that`ll be around 38k with the 125% applied. Her step father said he could be a sponsor (he made 55k last year). So, do I put her step father as the only sponsor or is the primary sponsor my fiance and her step father the only joint sponsor? In this latter case, how many i-864 forms should we fill? i-864a?

 

Thank you

Your fiance is the primary sponsor....She will have to submit an I-864 for herself.  You FIL will be a joint sponsor.  CURRENT income is king.  Income from last year is used only to help the Immigration Officer make a decision as to the whole financial picture.  It seems that you and your fiance need to do a lot of studying the process.  Perhaps she can join us here, too.

Living in the same house doesn't mean you're all in the same household.

 

Your spouse and you are a household of 2 (or more if there are kids).

 

Her stepfather will have a household of at least 3 (himself, his spouse, you) (or more if more dependents. Your wife shouldn't be included on her stepfather household.
