I didnt have enough income to sponsor my husband, so my family sponsored him. but now that me and my husband are working I want to change it to me. And my husband is up on his feet so he can also provide for the both of us. so what do I need to do to change.
Is your husband legally able to work? Watt part of the process are you currently in for permanent residency?
Once the Form I-864 has been accepted by the government (by granting the intending immigrant legal permanent residency), the obligations under the affidavit exist until one or more of the conditions specified in the affidavit exist.
The usual conditions include: the immigrant or the sponsor dies; the immigrant can be credited with 40 quarters of Social Security; the immigrant becomes a US citizen; the immigrant leaves the US and no longer returns. Other conditions are specified in the form.
The quickest way for your family to no longer be liable under the affidavit likely is for your husband to become a US citizen.
You and your husband can review the specific facts with attorneys to find out the legal options.
