Dear Honorable Sir/Madam,
I hope you are doing well today.
My husband filed I-864A as a household member in support of his father's(petitioner) I-864 for sponsoring his siblings. MY husband income is good enough and can support his father's I-864 without any problem, but The applicants were told by the consular officer at the embassy to submit i-864a for the spouse of joint sponsor, therefore, I am not sure why the consular section want me to submit i-864a as joint sponsor's spouse. In part two of i-864a it asks: Your (the Household Member's) Relationship to the Sponsor, therefore I am daughter in law to the petitioner and there is only place for how to fill out Spouse
Son or Daughter (at least 18 years of age)
Brother or Sister
Other Dependent (Specify), I am a bit confused what to write in part 2 because my husband filed i-864a as a household member not sponsor and my father in law is the petitioner and sponsor, therefore do I need to chose other dependent option and write daughter in law there because the sponsor is my father in law or spouse for household member(joint sponsor), your reply to this message will be greatly appreciated. Geeta
