In part 2 item 2 of I864, I need to indicate who's the principal immigrant. does it mean I need to choose one of my parent to be the primary beneficiary? If so and if I choose my mother to be the primary, then in my father's submitting case, I still need to fill in my mother's name in this item (instead of my father's)?

I like to confirm that. Thank you.

The principal immigrant is the beneficiary of the petition.

In the case of parents of a US citizen, each needs their own I-130 and each needs their own I-864. They are both "principal immigrant".

You are righ Raven. I think in the wrong way. What I think in my case is that NVC requires one applicant (father or mother) to be the primary beneficiary in case that a sponsor is unable to fully support both of them. As a result, only one person can get the visa before the sponsor's financial situation is strong enough to support another.

There's an app for this - Joint Sponsor

NVC requires what the law tells it to require, which is what I wrote previously - the beneficiary of the petition is the primary applicant for the I-864. If there should happen to be any derivative beneficiaries of a petition - which there are not in this case - the beneficiary of the petition is still the primary applicant for the I-864.
