Asked almost 2 years ago - Bellflower, CA

Hi SIR/MAM, I am sponsoring my mother and parents and my spouse is my joint sponsor/household member and I'm filling out the form i-864 part 5. I have confusion in "Persons NOT sponsored in this affidavit: b. yourself (default 1), c. if you are currently married, enter "1" for your spouse. Do i have to enter 1 in the box? And at "h." how many household size will i put in the box?

    Answered . If you're the sponsor and have sponsored someone previously (a sibling, for example) you have to add them to the list unless that person has naturalized or has worked for 40 quarters (about 10 years). Otherwise you count everyone who lives with you, you, and your spouse. If you have dependents who don't live with you, but whom you claim as dependents on your taxes, also count them.

    Answered . Mr. Corson is right, as always. I don't know which floor immigration law is on but it's not on the workers' comp floor. He did you a nice favor by forwarding your inquiry along to immigration. Workers' comp is for on the job injuries. Good luck.
