Hi there,

Sorry for the delay. I was at lunch when you responded.

I'm a little confused about one thing - you say your spouse is about to file the I-864, and then you say "that i am the principal applicant he will sponsor( excluding my kids and spouse?" He does not sponsor himself. And he cannot have two spouses. Can you please clarify?

Also, specifically which question are you referring to?

Expert:  Expert James replied 1 year ago.

Hi, I’m just checking in to see how things are going and to confirm that you received my answers.

Do you need more help or need me to explain anything else? Please respond so that I know what to do next.
