How to Remove a Joint Sponsor on CEAC

The CEAC (Citizenship and Immigration Canada) website provides a helpful guide on how to remove a joint sponsor from a sponsorship application. The process is relatively straightforward, but there are a few important things to keep in mind.

First, you must make sure that you have a valid reason for removing the joint sponsor. Some common reasons include:

  • The joint sponsor has died.
  • The joint sponsor has become a citizen or permanent resident of Canada.
  • The joint sponsor has withdrawn their consent to be a joint sponsor.

Once you have a valid reason for removing the joint sponsor, you can begin the process by submitting a request to CEAC. You will need to provide the following information:

  • Your name and contact information
  • The name of the joint sponsor you are removing
  • The reason for the removal
  • Any supporting documents (such as a death certificate or a letter of withdrawal)

CECA will review your request and make a decision. If your request is approved, the joint sponsor will be removed from your sponsorship application.

It is important to note that removing a joint sponsor can have a negative impact on your application. For example, CEAC may require you to provide additional financial information or proof of relationship with the principal applicant. If you are considering removing a joint sponsor, it is important to weigh the pros and cons carefully before making a decision.

What is a joint sponsor?

A joint sponsor is a person who agrees to be financially responsible for an immigrant if the primary sponsor is unable to provide for the immigrant. The joint sponsor must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident who is at least 18 years old and has a valid Social Security number. The joint sponsor must also have a household income that is at least 125% of the federal poverty level.

Who can remove a joint sponsor?

Only the primary sponsor can remove a joint sponsor from the CEAC application. The primary sponsor must submit a written request to USCIS, along with a copy of the joint sponsor’s signed Form I-864, Affidavit of Support. USCIS will review the request and make a decision on whether to remove the joint sponsor from the application.

How to remove a joint sponsor from the CEAC application

To remove a joint sponsor from the CEAC application, the primary sponsor must follow these steps:

1. Download and complete Form I-864, Affidavit of Support.
2. In Part 7, “Information About Joint Sponsors,” check the box next to “I am requesting to remove the following joint sponsor from this application.”
3. List the name and Social Security number of the joint sponsor you are requesting to remove.
4. Sign and date the form.
5. Include a copy of the joint sponsor’s signed Form I-864.

Removing a joint sponsor from the CEAC application can be a complex process, but it is important to understand the steps involved so that you can make an informed decision. If you have any questions about removing a joint sponsor, you should consult with an immigration attorney.

How to remove a joint sponsor

If you are a joint sponsor on a Form I-864, Affidavit of Support, and you need to remove yourself from the sponsorship, you can do so by submitting a Request to Remove a Joint Sponsor (Form I-865).

To submit Form I-865, you will need:

  • The original Form I-864 that you signed as a joint sponsor.
  • A copy of your current green card or other proof of lawful permanent resident status.
  • A copy of the Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, for the principal beneficiary of the Form I-864.
  • A fee of $350.

You can submit Form I-865 to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) service center that is processing the Form I-765 for the principal beneficiary.

When USCIS receives your Form I-865, they will:

  • Notify the principal beneficiary of the Form I-864.
  • Review your request to make sure that you meet all of the requirements.
  • If your request is approved, USCIS will remove your name from the Form I-864 and send you a letter confirming the removal.

If your request is denied, USCIS will send you a letter explaining why. You can appeal the denial by submitting a Request for Reconsideration (Form I-290B).

What happens after a joint sponsor is removed?

Once a joint sponsor is removed from a Form I-864, the principal beneficiary of the Form I-864 is still responsible for repaying any debt that was incurred under the affidavit of support. However, the principal beneficiary may be able to get a new joint sponsor if they can find someone who is willing to sign a new Form I-864.

If the principal beneficiary is unable to get a new joint sponsor, they may be able to apply for a waiver of the affidavit of support. A waiver can be granted if the principal beneficiary can show that they are unable to repay the debt or that repaying the debt would cause them extreme hardship.

To apply for a waiver of the affidavit of support, you will need to submit Form I-864A, Application for Waiver of Affidavit of Support.

For more information on removing a joint sponsor or applying for a waiver of the affidavit of support, please visit the USCIS website.

Removing a joint sponsor from a Form I-864 can be a complicated process, but it is important to do so if you are no longer able to support the principal beneficiary of the Form I-864. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can ensure that the principal beneficiary is still able to remain in the United States and that you are no longer liable for their debt.
