I am sponsoring my spouse. So, I am the petitioner and he is the beneficiary.

I am little confused the household size adds up to 3 while its just the two of us.

Did I fill this correctly?

For question 2. Persons NOT sponsored in his affidavit, for "Yourself"- Do I put 1 or 0?

 

Thank you!!

Item #3 should be "0".........Do not count your spouse more than once. In addition, items 2 thru 7 are only for people NOT sponsored in this I-864.

Question3. “If you are currently married, enter 1 for your spouse”. 

 

why do they ask that? It’s confusing. 


Will there be a problem if I have a household of 3 even if its just me and my spouse. I dont have a problem with the income, i work in healthcare so I make a decent income.

it has been like this and is confusing for years  especially when it automatically adds for u

i stuck a sticky note but that was back when we mailed them in

many of the USCIS forms don't make a lot of sense especially when they use them for mulit purpose

I864 is for everyone not just for those who sponsor spouses. That's why one need to read the form and its instructions clearly and fill out applicable sections  That row is for people who sponsor someone other than their spouse and so have to put 1 for their spouse regardless.

 

The sentences in bold literally says not to count people more than once and that sections  2-7 for people not sponsored on that form.

Very likely you'll get an RFE to resubmit i864 for incorrect household which means they don't have a base to compare to accept it.

 Back in 2019, before I signed up for an account here, I did the same mistake: count as 3 even though we’re two. We also sent tax account transcripts instead of return transcripts. Granted, they just send you a generic RFE with 1000 issues to address, but I remember one of them was incorrect household size. They knew we were just two.

Read the form...READ MY COMMENT..... DO NOT COUNT ANY PERSON MORE THAN ONCE!!!   ITEMS 2 thru 7 are ONLY for people not sponsored by THIS I-864.......Your spouse should be entered in item #1 ONLY.

Thank you Crazy Cat! I also have few questions..

 

1.My spouse has an interview 3 weeks from now. I submitted 2018, 2019, and 2020 tax returns and all the docs in the NVC website in Jan 2022 and all the docs were approved hence it was sent to the Embassy. However, will I need to upload recent 2021 tax return/return transcripts/W2 to NVC again?  I emailed my 2021 tax docs to my spouse, so can he just print and take those to the interview in case they ask for it?

 

2.I also sent an updated I-864 signed (will electronic signature work or does it have to be signed in ink)?

 

3.Lastly, Also would you know how long a job letter is valid until? Mine was signed in Jan 2022 by my employer. Will I need updated one as well?

 

Since, the petition was approved based on old records, I was wondering if I need to submit new finances/tax records/job letter? Or they wont bother with the new ones?

 

Thank you!!!🙂
