I believe the children become USCs, yes, so they need an I-864W. Good question about household size. I would think yes, they still need to be counted, because they still need to be sponsored for the immigrant visa.

The I-864W has been eliminated. On the immigration lawyer chat boards I have seen puzzlement on how to handle this situation. From what I understand, this is part of the new stiffened “public charge” requirements.

Wow. I didn't know I-864W had been eliminated.

It sounds like the information that would have previously been entered on I-864W now needs to be entered on the new public charge form DS-5540: https://www.ilrc.org/public-charge, but I am sure S Folinsky will have more up to date information

I have just read all the information on the link you posted but am still unsure as to what it all means?

Was there something in particular you weren't sure about? I think the link explained most aspects of the new form?

The bottom line is that it seems very likely that this form (and supporting documentation) will be asked for at the time of the visa interview. There's no official word from the London US Embassy about it yet, but I'm sure that once they reopen more information will be forthcoming.

This is brand new and due to litigation and COVID-19 the proverbial ink has yet to dry. I don’t think anyone understands it.

I am assuming that CRBA is the Consular Record of Birth Abroad. I can’t say for certain, but I’m pretty sure that a CRBA is NOT what the question refers to. The Certificate of Citizenship is issued by USCIS (or INS before 2003) and looks like a certificate of Naturalization. (My mother had one).

Thank you!

So my answer would simply be parents and then NO to certificate of citizenship?

Do you know about filing the I-130s online? On the paper forms obviously you fill in blank answers as N/A, none or present. Online it doesn’t allow you to do this with dates etc. But if you go to the next step it then says you should provide an answer. I can provide the specific questions that it doesn’t allow if this is something you know about?

many thanks 😊
