Question i-864 - few questions

I know these questions have been asked a billion times, but I think the i-864 instructions and forms are insanely confusing.

Just wanting to confirm a couple points before I gather stuff from our joint sponsor. I am USC, husband is being sponsored (UKC) for a IR-1 via DCF. We also have 2 USC children coming with us.

- Our household size for *MY* i-864 is 4. I simply put whatever income is on my last tax returns (though it is nowhere near sufficient).

- Joint sponsor also fills in i-864. Joint sponsor is married, has 2 children. Their household size on their i-864 is 5 (joint sponsor+spouse+children+"intending immigrant"). This also means their minimum income needs to be $35,975 (as per 125% of https://aspe.hhs.gov/poverty-guidelines).

- Joint sponsor files joint tax return. Will provide IRS tax transcripts which show household income, but also W-2s to show their individual income. So long as this exceeds $35,975, this is ok, right (I don't need joint sponsor's husband to fill out i-864a so long as their individual income is more than sufficient)? Will also get last few months' payslips to show they are currently/still employed.

- *PHOTOCOPIES* of the evidence above are ok, correct? I don't need originals of anything from joint sponsor save their signature on the i-864?


I'm pretty sure the above is correct, but my joint sponsor is a busy lady so I don't want to send off the e-mail only to find I'm having her gather the wrong documents or something...Thank you!!

Yes, that's all correct.

Although on YOUR I-864, where it asks for current income, if you are working and have income, list it there...even if it's UK income. You'll put the amount from the tax return on the question spefically asking for the figure from the tax return.
