What You May Not Know About the Affidavit of Support

 

Any person seeking to immigrate to the United States pursuant to a Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, must have a financial sponsor who signs and submits a Form I-864, Affidavit of Support to the Department of Homeland Security. With this Affidavit of Support, the sponsor agrees to financially support the intending immigrant at 125 percent of the federal poverty guidelines to ensure that the intending immigrant will not become reliant on any means-tested public benefit. What many people do not realize is the extreme durability of this contract, which lasts through divorce and even bankruptcy.
