When do my obligations under the Form I-864 end?


Your obligations under Form I-864, Affidavit of Support, that you signed will end if the person who becomes a lawful permanent resident based on that affidavit:

  • Becomes a U.S. citizen;
  • Has worked, or can receive credit for, 40 quarters of coverage under the Social Security Act;
  • No longer has lawful permanent resident status and has departed the United States;
  • Is subject to removal, but applies for and obtains, in remove proceedings, a new grant of adjustment of status, based on a new affidavit of support, if one is required; or
  • Dies

However, divorce does not terminate your obligations under Form I-864.
