  1. Please help I am so CONFUSED! My American husband and I were living abroad when we filed our I-130. He has now moved back to America and recently got a job. I believe he cannot solely sponsor me since he has no proof of income for the past couple years. His parents are willing to sponsor me. They both filled out I-864 forms as joint sponsors, and have their IRS transcripts. My husband will also fill out an I-864 and include a pay stub or similar. Now I am confused though since the parents obviously share a household. Should one of them fill out at I-864A instead? What I mean is my father-in-law and mother-in-law share a residence. I will be moving in to a household that includes my husband, and my brother-in-law. Does my mother-in-law AND/OR my brother-in-law have to fill out an I-864A? I'm so sorry but I'm starting to feel so overwhelmed and frustrated with this process, even though we're nearing the end. I appreciate your time and assistance!
  2. Help! As showen in picture all the fees is paid but it is showing n/a under houshold member. Is my case accepted or do i need to add the AOS os household member too. If i do need to add then how can i?
  3. Hello. Can someone tell me if I have this right? I am using my dad as a joint sponsor. We do not live in the same physical address. Both my dad and I filled out separate I-864 forms. Since my mom lives with my dad, she filled out the I-864A. My dad does NOT have to fill out an I-864A form, right?
  4. Hi. This is regarding F2B visa. I am (son) the beneficiary and my dad is the petitioner. Only my mother has income and her tax filing status is 'Married filing separately'. My mother doesnt live in the same residence as my father though they are married. We want to add her as joint sponsor. In my father's I-864 Part 5 item 3 he put '1' because it says "If you are currently married, enter '1' for your spouse". Because of this my mother is counted as a household member. Thus, she will fill in I864a? Or do we just put '0' even if they are married so that she does not get counted as household member and fill in I864 ?
  5. Petitioner's Spouse not living in same residence but still counted as household member? Form I864 or I864a? Immigrant application type: F2B Beneficiary: Me (son) Petitioner: Father (no income) Add sponsor: Mother (with income, tax filing Status: ‘Married filing separately’, not living in same residence but still married) In the petitioner’s I-864 form Part 5 item 3 it says 'If you are currently married, enter "1" for your spouse’. Which means you include the spouse as a household member. Then on part 6 item 8 It says: “Income you are using from any other person who was counted in your household size....” So we add my mother there. Then on Part 6 item 21: "The people listed in item numbers 8 .... have completed I-864A....". So now my mother is part of the household even if she is not in the same residence. Should I fillup I-864a or I-864 only? Less
  6. hello guys.... My family and i had our F4 interview on the 19 Of march ...and the Visa Officer said everything is good that but requested for an I-864A form to be signed by her husband since our petitioner files tax together with her husband along with our passport....which we submitted on the 26th of March... We just got an email from the UsTraveldocs Document Collection centre... That our passport is ready for pick up... But what is confusing us is that can the Visa be issued without the CEAC visa tracker changing to Issued??? Please i will appreciate your contributions
  7. Hi everyone, Could you please help me with this information. I am going to submit DS-260 with AOS. I am the principal applicant. My petitioner does not have enough income to sponsor me. I managed a joint sponsor who has filled i-864 with sufficient income. In his i-864 he did not use any income of household members which could be of his wife. They file tax jointly as married joint. The wife has very little income which is reflected in the tax transcript. QUESTION: Does the wife have to submit i-864a even though the husband (the joint sponsor) did not use household income in his i-684?
  8. Hi everyone. I am in desperate need of your advise. Sorry if this is long and confusing 😥 My husband has never been in the United States and his interview is coming up on July 18, 2019 in Ciudad Juarez. Previously, I filed the I-864 and my parents each filed the I-864a as household members, since I do not meet the income requirements (I have 3 dependents). I work full time, my dad works part time and receives social security benefits (retirement). My mom does not work, but also receives social security benefits (spousal retirement). They file their taxes joint/married. My worry is that my parent's SSI benefits will not count as income. All of their SSi benefits are included on their tax return, but I see that not all of it is counted as "taxable" income. Their "Total Income" is less than their "Household Income". If we go by the Total Income, we do not meet the income guidelines for Affidavit of Support. But if they go by Household Income, we do. Which one do they go by at the US Embassy? Lately, I have been seeing a lot of people getting denied for I-864 errors and I am confused and worried. I do not know what to do. I want to be prepared. Should I look for another sponsor? Please help. Thank you very much in advance...
  9. Finally got to the point where we can pay the AoS and IV fees and I have a few questions... Joint Sponsors If using multiple joint-sponsors for the I-864 and the first one meets the 125% poverty rate, would they use both joint-sponsors, would they just drop the secondary sponsor, or would they possibly make me resubmit my I-864 and another I-864A with a single sponsor? AoS Filing Fee I've read that filing the I-864 in the applicants country would be free, but how can that be if I must pay the fee before I can move on to the next step which is submitting documents to the NVC? Do they mean if both the applicant and petitioner are out of country at the time, that can be the case? (That's not the case though: I'm in the US and my wife is another country) I'm assuming I (the petitioner) just pay the fee, and my wife pays the IV fee. Document Cover Sheet The financial documents section only pertains to the petitioner, so where is the section for the joint-sponsors documents? Should I just check "Enclosed" on "Other Documents" at the bottom and make extra cover sheets that list each item in section 2, for each set of financial documents? Also, would it be OK to have each set of joint sponsors documents in a separate envelope within the main package? (the two parties probably don't want their financial info shared with one another) Applicant Moving My wife (applicant) is moving somewhere else in her country within a week, would it be wise to wait until after she moves, to continue filling out the DS-260 and then collecting her supporting documents? ...and if I remember correctly I don't think I need to contact the USCIS and let them know that the applicant is moving, since we are past that stage and the case was approved, i.e.,That was just for if I was moving during the I-130 approval process, and we're dealing with the NVC only now, correct?
  10. Filing an I-864a in addition to the the i-864 as my wife doesn't make enough money to sponsor me by herself. We have her dad's most recent tax return documents which show that he earned way above the threshold required to joint-sponsor me, but we can't easily procure the returns for the previous 3 years' that the form also asks for. Are the 'most recent three years' as important as the most recent year, or will they only be required if we get an RFE? I think to get the past 3 years' tax return info we'd need to go through all the usual bureaucracy associated with the IRS and take even more time and we're really trying to expedite what will undoubtedly already be a lengthy process waiting for an EAD etc....
  11. Hi everyone, I am struggling to get this figured out 100%. We got an RFE for I-864 (wife didn't make the poverty guidelines for some strange reason) and have decided to use my wife's mother as a joint sponsor, she files as married filing jointly, her husband (my FIL) is retired and earns roughly $6.8k in SS benefits and $500 in dividends/year as indicated on their 2017 tax transcripts. My MIL makes about $57k in wages currently as per her recent pay stubs. Okay so I know she has to fill out I-864 form but this where I get stuck: Do we include FIL SS benefits and add him to the household income even though she makes more than enough without it? Her household size = 4 (herself, husband, son, and me). I understand its better to include an I-864A for joint tax filers since it demonstrates consent from the spouse, but I really do not want to bother him further to provide evidence of his SS benefits, he is not well. Are the taxable SS benefits listed on their tax transcripts acceptable if we go this route or must we provide further evidence? I also understand if you provide transcripts, you must not submit W2's since they are joint tax filers and are both consenting through the I-864A. alternatively Do we we only include her (MIL/joint sponsor) current annual income as the household income, provide tax transcripts and W2's and recent pay stubs.(Does this have to be 6 months worth? She gets paid weekly, that's a lot of pages) Additionally I could then just fill out a I-864A for FIL, put 0 for current annual income on his form and hers , this might satisfy IO's concern for consent and avoid having to get SS benefit documents? I am aware no matter what we do, since they are joint tax filers, you always fill in the exact figure of line 22 on 1040 for Part 6, line 24a on the I-864 form. 1 last question, I honestly believe the RFE was unnecessary and the IO didn't examine my wife's petition thoroughly, he/she probably just saw no taxes filed for 2017 and sent RFE immediately. She did not file because she did not earn any income whatsoever during that year. We explained this in a letter, also that she started working again in April '18 and based on her salary would meet the poverty guidelines by 4 x, we provided pay stubs, employment letter. Since submitting original application she has taken on a new job with even better pay, she has recently filed for 2017 even though the figures were zero. Now would it be advisable to include an updated I-864 for her reflecting her new pay stubs and/or job letter, tick the yes box asking "have you filed for the 3 most recent tax years" and just put a zero for the 2017 amount and additionally submit her mother as a joint sponsor, in case they for some reason don't bite based on her application alone? Phew what a mouthful, sorry about that just don't want to get denied and so many ways to go wrong with this stuff. Happy Halloween folks.

  13. Good day, Today I finally received the "Packet 4" (e-mail stating I can schedule my appointment for interview in the Frankfurt Consulate). The e-mail said: In order to do your final visa interview we still require the following document(s).Please submit the requested document(s)on the day of your visa interview: - Contract between sponsor (joint sponsor) and household member (I-864A) - Householde member’s Proof of U.S. citizenship or U.S. permanent residency I didn't attach I-864A with my previous paperwork because the Joint Sponsor makes all the money in the household. He does claim his son and spouse as dependent, but stupidly I thought I didn't need their I-864A. Now... the problem is that the spouse of the joint sponsor doesn't have a birth certificate. She only has a midwife certificate. Can I even use that as proof of U.S citizenship? Is this going to be a problem at the interview and can possibly affect my possibility of getting mi visa approved? Thank youu
