Thread: divorce does not terminate your obligations???

  1. #1
    http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/I-864.pdf

    On Page 18, it read:

    When will these obligations (of the sponor, your husband) end ?


    "Your obligations under a Form I-864 will end if the person who becomes a permanent resident based on a Form I-864 that you signed:

    (1) Becomes a U.S. citizen or
    (2)Has worked, or can be credited with, 40 quarters of coverage under the Social Security Act
    (3) Becomes subject to removal, but applies for and obtains in removal proceedings a new grant of adjustment of status,based on a new affidavit of support, if one is required; or
    (4)Dies.

    Note that divorce does not terminate your obligations under this Form I-864.
    If one can legally stay in this country after divoice, then the other one still holds the responsibility?

    Yes -- there have been cases confirming this.

  4. #4
    Yes - and for other things as well. The marriage never ends. So be very careful who you marry and why. You can be stuck with them forever - and imagine marrying more than one.
