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. Anyone who fills, signs, and submits the state on behalf of an intending immigrant becomes a sponsor and is held to this contract.
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.
When to file Form I-864:
If Form I-864 is required, it must be submitted at the same time as Form I-485.
This form is filed along with Form I-485 for many applicants. Form I-485 applications for whom this is a requirement it is required to form the Form I-864 concurrently, or USCIS will reject their application.
