Default I-864 and I-864a

Right, we've been trying to get paperwork sorted out from my husband's parents as my FIL is joint sponsoring my immigration to the US. We are waiting for the I-130 to be processed. I just read something about the NVU (?) sending out the I-864 to my FIL once I-130 has been approved, is this right or does it actually fall on us to make sure the paperwork is sorted out? I'm confused now!!

Also, does my MIL have to fill out an I-864a even though my FIL makes more than enough money to sponsor me of his own accord? We intend to live with them for a while once we get to the US until we can get situated.

You filed in London, didn't you? In which case you can forget all about the NVU. It's up to you and your joint sponsor to organise the paperwork. You can get everything you need either at the US embassy in London site, or the USCIS site. There's nothing to stop him getting started on it now, although it's probably best to have everything dated as close as possible to the interview.

If your MIL's finances aren't being used, she doesn't need to complete an I-864a. Make sure that FIL's tax returns are clear about his contribution though, and don't just show their combined income.

He's been working on the paperwork already, only thing is he printed it all out instead of handwriting it all (other than his signature) will this matter or is it me just being mega fussy?

The I-864 can be filled out either online and then printed out, or filled out by hand, either way is fine. Just make sure the signature is original (i.e. done by hand, not printed online).

His is the best way to do it - handwritten is often more difficult to read.

ok, just paranoid me thought that it would look like anyone could have filled that out online and just got him to sign, that's why I thought that handwritten would be more authentic.
