In April 2013, I applied for a family based green card
application by filing I130, i485, i864 and all other relevant forms. My wife who is petitioning for me is a USC. However, she is a student and has no income. However, because I am currently employed in the US with a H1B visa, I was able to use myself as the sponsor in i864. Now, I just recently quit my job to attend school and as a result, my H1B status has ended as well. My green card interview is coming up in about a month and I have the following questions:
- Given that I have already been assigned an interview date, do I need to worry about sending in a new I864 with a joint sponsor who has enough income to sponsor me? Or is it possible that all sponsor-level checks have already happened and that I needn't worry anymore?
- If I should get a joint sponsor, do I need to mail in a separate form right away, or can I put together all the required documents and just provide them on the interview date?
- If I do need to send the form right away, will I also need to reschedule my upcoming interview date? How would I know that they have reviewed my new i864 form before the interview date?
I understand that these are very specific questions, but I would greatly appreciate your help on this matter.
Thanks so much
