    Answered . Hello. Per the Form I-864 (Affidavit of Support) instructions, even though you do not meet the income requirement, you still have to submit a completed Form I-864 with your husband's adjustment of status package. Your mother will need to submit a SEPARATE Form I-864.

    THAT SAID, I am curious as to how you were scheduled for an interview if your package was incomplete. It is best that you consult with an immigration attorney before you attend the interview.

    Good luck.
