As part of the application process, the U.S. petitioner will need to fill out a form called an Affidavit of Support, on USCIS Form I-864, on the immigrant’s behalf.

The legal purpose of this Affidavit is to prove that, according to the numbers set forth within the U.S. Poverty Guidelines (see below), the U.S. sponsor’s household income is high enough to support the immigration family members at 125% or more of U.S. poverty line levels.

The I-864 is used to prove that you can financially support the intending immigrant and promises the US government that the beneficiary will not be come a public charge to tax payers. The only way the sponsor is released from this obligation is if the following:

  • Beneficiary (sponsored immigrant(s)) has worked for 40 quarters (10 years)
  • Beneficiary (sponsored immigrant(s)) leaves the US permanently
  • Beneficiary (sponsored immigrant(s)) becomes US citizen
  • Beneficiary (sponsored immigrant(s)) dies.

To count the income of any of these household members, the person must be at least 18 years old and, except for the intending immigrant, execute a the Contract – Form I-864A.

The purpose of this contract is to assist the sponsored immigrant(s) and any other agency or entity to which the sponsor is financially obligated to reimburse because he or she has signed an affidavit of support to sponsor an immigrant. It is a legally-binding contract that can be signed by another household member of the sponsor (who is not a sponsored immigrant him- or herself), making his or her assets and income available to aid the immigrant for whom the sponsor has agreed to support.

Form I-864A, Contract Between Sponsor and Household Member, can help make up the shortcomings if the primary sponsor’s income is not sufficient to meet the minimum financial requirements for sponsoring someone for a green card.

Who is Eligible?

It is not merely enough to share an address with someone to be considered a household member. For the purpose of filing the I-864A, USCIS imposes other criteria. A household member must be 18-years old or more, and belong to one of the following categories:

  • Must be the spouse or dependent of the sponsor as listed on the previous year’s tax return, but not necessarily living at the same address, or
  • Must be the father, mother, brother, sister, or adult child of the sponsor and living at the same address

Household members need not be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Roommates and romantic partners who are unwed are not eligible household members.

    CUSTOMER REVIEWS

    She was perfect! It was such a luck to have Julia Greenberg referred to me by my acquaintance. She is the most caring and helpful attorney I have ever worked with. She is very professional and knowledgeable in the immigration law, and she gave me great advice! I appreciate most that she is always available by phone or returns missed calls shortly – this is something that many attorneys in NYC do not do or have their assistants do who never give the correct answer. I approached Julia to help me prepare for my citizenship interview since I had, frankly speaking, not an easy case, and she did the best  job I could expect. I could not imagine how my interview would have gone without her; her support was significant! If I ever have a question about any immigration matter I would definitely ask Julia for help again. Awesome

Julia has helped me every step of the way with my case. Thank you!!

    Alie Keshfedinova

    Julia is very professional, competent and knows how to get the best deal for her clients. What we appreciated about her service was that she always answered our calls or got back to us in a very short amount of time. We had a very stressful issue with the officer but Julia was able resolve it and have our case successfully processed the same day. We could have not done it without her. She is a smart lawyer and a great negotiator with a wonderful personality. Hire Julia Greenberg if you want to get a real result!
