I-864 Immigration

Asked about 1 year ago - North Arlington, NJ

Can I use my car as an asset on the I-864, if I am making payments to a bank in which I have a loan for the vehicle?

Additional information

When I originally filled out the I-864 months ago I was employed full time. Right now I am unemployed, I have a family member who lives with me adding this income to my child support to meet the financial requirements. I have an appointment w/ Immigration on 9/4/13, in which I will be submitting a new I-864 & an I-864a. I was wondering if I can add the car to the I-864 to put us way over the poverty line?

    If your income is insufficient, the best way to ensure that the petition will be approved is if you have a co-sponsor who can assist you.

    Answered . It is still an asset if you have a substantial amount of equity in the car. But I agree with my colleague, you should find a joint sponsor if you cannot meet the affidavit of support requirements with your income.
