Part 6. Sponsor's Contract, Statement, Contact
Information, Declaration, Certification, and
Signature
NOTE: Read the Penalties section of the Form I-864EZ
Instructions before completing this part.
By signing this Form I-864EZ, you agree to assume certain
specific obligations under the Immigration and Nationality
Act (INA) and other Federal laws. The following
paragraphs describe those obligations. Please read the
following information carefully before you sign Form
I-864EZ. If you do not understand the obligations, you may
wish to consult an attorney or accredited representative.
What Is the Legal Effect of Signing Form
I-864EZ?
If you sign Form I-864EZ on behalf of any person (intending
immigrant) who is applying for an immigrant visa or adjustment
of status to a lawful permanent resident, and that intending
immigrant submits Form I-864EZ to the U.S. Government with
his or her application for an immigrant visa or adjustment of
status, under INA section 213A, these actions create a contract
between you and the U.S. Government. The intending
immigrant becoming a lawful permanent resident is the
"consideration" for the contract.
You cannot be made to sign Form I-864EZ if you do not want
to do so. But if you do not sign Form I-864EZ, the intending
immigrant may not be able to become a lawful permanent
resident in the United States.
What If I Choose Not to Sign Form I-864EZ?
If an intending immigrant becomes a lawful permanent resident
in the United States based on a Form I-864EZ that you have
signed, then, until your obligations under Form I-864EZ
terminate, you must:
What Does Signing Form I-864EZ Require Me to
Do?
Under this contract, you agree that, in deciding whether the
intending immigrant can establish that he or she is not
inadmissible to the United States as a foreign national likely to
become a public charge, the U.S. Government can consider
your income and assets available for the support of the
intending immigrant.
Provide the intending immigrant any support
necessary to maintain him or her at an income that is
at least 125 percent of the Federal Poverty
Guidelines for his or her household size (or 100
percent if you are the petitioning sponsor and are on
active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces or U.S. Coast
Guard and the person is your husband, wife, or
unmarried child under 21 years of age.); and
A.
Notify U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
(USCIS) of any change in your address, within 30
days of the change, by filing Form I-865. Please
see the USCIS website at www.uscis.gov/I-865 for
more information on filing a change of address as a
sponsor.

What Other Consequences Are There?
If an intending immigrant becomes a lawful permanent resident
in the United States based on a Form I-864EZ that you have
signed, then, until your obligations under Form I-864EZ
terminate, your income and assets may be considered available
to that person, in determining whether he or she is eligible for
certain Federal means-tested public benefits and also for state
or local means-tested public benefits, if the state or local
government's rules provide for consideration of your income
and assets as available to the person.
This provision does not apply to public benefits specified in
section 403(c) of the Welfare Reform Act, such as emergency
Medicaid; short-term, non-cash emergency relief; services
provided under the National School Lunch and Child Nutrition
Acts; immunizations and testing and treatment for
communicable diseases; and means-tested programs under the
Elementary and Secondary Education Act.
Part 6. Sponsor's Contract, Statement, Contact
Information, Declaration, Certification, and
Signature (continued)
If a Federal, state, local, or a private agency provides any
covered means-tested public benefit to the person who becomes
a lawful permanent resident based on the Form I-864EZ that you
signed, the agency may ask you to reimburse them for the
amount of the benefits they provided. If you do not make the
reimbursement, the agency may sue you for the amount that the
agency believes you owe.
If you do not provide sufficient support to the person who
becomes a lawful permanent resident based on the Form
I-864EZ that you signed, that person may sue you for this
support.
What If I Do Not Fulfill My Obligations?
If you do not file a properly completed Form I-865 within 30
days of any change of address, USCIS may impose a civil fine
for your failing to do so. Please see the USCIS website at
www.uscis.gov/I-865 for more information on filing a change
of address as a sponsor.
If you are sued, and the court enters a judgment against you, the
person or agency that sued you may use any legally permitted
procedures for enforcing or collecting the judgment. You may
also be required to pay the costs of collection, including
attorney fees.
No longer has lawful permanent resident status and
has departed the United States;
C.
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
D.
Dies.E.
Becomes a U.S. citizen;A.
Has worked, or can receive credit for 40 quarters of
coverage under the Social Security Act (SSA);
B.
Your obligations under Form I-864EZ also end if you die.
Therefore, if you die, your estate will not be required to take
responsibility for the person's support after your death. Your
estate may, however, be responsible for any support that you
owed before you died.
NOTE: Divorce does not terminate your obligations
under this Form I-864EZ.
