Please note that, by signing this Form I-864, you agree to
assume certain specific obligations under the Immigration and
Nationality Act (INA) and other Federal laws. The following
paragraphs describe those obligations. Please read the
following information carefully before you sign Form I-864. If
you do not understand the obligations, you may wish to consult
an attorney or accredited representative.
If you sign Form I-864 on behalf of any person (called the
intending immigrant) who is applying for an immigrant visa or
for adjustment of status to a lawful permanent resident, and that
intending immigrant submits Form I-864 to the U.S.
Government with his or her application for an immigrant visa or
adjustment of status, under INA section 213A, these actions
create a contract between you and the U.S. Government. The
intending immigrant becoming a lawful permanent resident is
the consideration for the contract.
What is the Legal Effect of My Signing Form I-864?
Part 8. Sponsor's Contract, Statement, Contact
Information, Certification, and Signature
Part 7. Use of Assets to Supplement Income
(Optional) (continued)
Under this contract, you agree that, in deciding whether the
intending immigrant can establish that he or she is not
inadmissible to the United States as a person likely to become a
public charge, the U.S. Government can consider your income
and assets as available for the support of the intending
immigrant.
The U.S. Government cannot make you sign Form 1-864 if you
do not want to do so. But if you do not sign Form I-864, the
intending immigrant may not become a lawful permanent
resident in the United States.
What If I Choose Not to Sign Form I-864?
What Does Signing Form I-864 Require Me to do?
If an intending immigrant becomes a lawful permanent resident
in the United States based on a Form I-864 that you have
signed, then, until your obligations under Form I-864 terminate,
you must:
A.
Provide the intending immigrant any support
necessary to maintain him or her at an income that is
at least 125 percent of the Federal Poverty
Guidelines for his or her household size (100
percent if you are the petitioning sponsor and are on
active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces or U.S. Coast
Guard, and the person is your husband, wife, or
unmarried child under 21 years of age); and
NOTE: Read the information on penalties in the Penalties
section of the Form I-864 Instructions before completing this
part.
Sponsor's Contract
Form I-864 07/02/15 N
Page 8 of 12
If an intending immigrant becomes a lawful permanent resident
in the United States based on a Form I-864 that you have
signed, then, until your obligations under Form I-864 terminate,
the U.S. Government may consider (deem) your income and
assets as available to that person, in determining whether he or
she is eligible for certain Federal means-tested public benefits
and also for state or local means-tested public benefits, if the
state or local government's rules provide for consideration
(deeming) of your income and assets as available to the person.
Notify U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
(USCIS) of any change in your address, within 30
days of the change, by filing Form I-865.
What Other Consequences Are There?
If you do not provide sufficient support to the person who
becomes a lawful permanent resident based on a Form I-864
that you signed, that person may sue you for this support.
What If I Do Not Fulfill My Obligations?
B.
If a Federal, state, local, or private agency provided any covered
means-tested public benefit to the person who becomes a lawful
permanent resident based on a Form I-864 that you signed, the
agency may ask you to reimburse them for the amount of the
benefits they provided. If you do not make the reimbursement,
the agency may sue you for the amount that the agency believes
you owe.
If you are sued, and the court enters a judgment against you, the
person or agency that sued you may use any legally permitted
procedures for enforcing or collecting the judgment. You may
also be required to pay the costs of collection, including
attorney fees.
If you do not file a properly completed Form I-865 within 30
days of any change of address, USCIS may impose a civil fine
for your failing to do so.
This provision does not apply to public benefits specified in
section 403(c) of the Welfare Reform Act such as emergency
Medicaid, short-term, non-cash emergency relief; services
provided under the National School Lunch and Child Nutrition
Acts; immunizations and testing and treatment for
communicable diseases; and means-tested programs under the
Elementary and Secondary Education Act.
No longer has lawful permanent resident status and has
departed the United States;
Becomes a U.S. citizen;
When Will These Obligations End?
Has worked, or can receive credit for, 40 quarters of
coverage under the Social Security Act;
Your obligations under a Form I-864 that you signed will end if
the person who becomes a lawful permanent resident based on
that affidavit:
Is subject to removal, but applies for and obtains, in
removal proceedings, a new grant of adjustment of status,
based on a new affidavit of support, if one is required; or
A.
B.
C.
D.
Dies.
NOTE: Divorce does not terminate your obligations under
Form I-864.
E.
Your obligations under a Form I-864 that you signed also end if
you die. Therefore, if you die, your estate is not required to
take responsibility for the person's support after your death.
However, your estate may owe any support that you
accumulated before you died.
