Termination of Affidavit of Support Obligation

Termination of Affidavit of Support Obligation for Permanent Resident Status-Green Card.

The Affidavit of support obligation and the change of address reporting requirement imposed on a sponsor, substitute sponsor and joint sponsor under an affidavit of support, and any Co-sponsor household member’s support obligation under a Form I-864A Contract between Sponsor and Household, all terminate by operation of law when the sponsored immigrant:

  1. Becomes a citizen of the United States;
  2. Has worked, or can be credited with, 40 qualifying quarters of Social security earnings,
  3. Ceases to hold the status of an alien lawfully admitted for permanent residence and departs the United States.
  4. Obtains in  removal/deportation proceeding a new grant of adjustment of status as relief from removal (in this case, any individual(s) who signed an affidavit of support or Form I-864A Contract between Sponsor and Household in relation to the new adjustment application will be subject to the Affidavit of support obligations, rather than those who signed an affidavit of support or Form I-864A Contract between Sponsor and Household in relation to an earlier grant of Lawful permanent resident status ;or
  5. Dies.

The support obligation under an affidavit of support also terminates if the sponsor, substitute sponsor or joint sponsor dies. A household member’s obligation under a Form I-864A Contract between Sponsor and Household terminates when the household member dies.

The death of one person who had affidavit of  support obligation under an affidavit of support or an affidavit of support Form I-864A Contract between Sponsor and Household  does not terminate the support obligation of any other sponsor, substitute sponsor, joint sponsor, or household member with respect to the same sponsored immigrant.

The termination of the sponsor’s, substitute sponsor’s, or joint sponsor’s obligations under an affidavit of support or of a household member’s obligations under an affidavit of support obligation does not relieve the sponsor, substitute sponsor, joint sponsor, or household member (or their respective estates) of any reimbursement obligation that accrued before the support obligation terminated.
