Form I-864 and I-864A

What is Form I-864?

Form I-864, Affidavit of Support Under Section 213A of the INA, is the application for financial sponsorship. For many applicants who file Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, Form I-864 is required to prove the ability to support an intending immigrant financially. Form I-864 is a contract between the person who files the form (the sponsor) and the United States Government.

Form I-864A, Contract Between Sponsor and Household Member, is a form that can be used together with Form I-864 if the income of a household member is being added to support the intending immigrant.
