Co-Sponsor - What it means for the Sponsor

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I will need a co-sponsor for my husband to immigrate. The person I'm asking to co-sponsor is a good friend but wants to well-know what he's getting himself into and what it means for him to be a co-sponsor. My husband will be coming on an IR-1 Visa since we've been married more than 2 years. How long after his entry in the US will the co-sponsor be obligated to sponsor my husband?

Nope it's actually until the immigrant becomes a U.S. citizen, has earned 40 work quarters credited toward Social Security (a work quarter is about three months, so this means about ten years of work), dies, or permanently leaves the United States. (This is from page 8 of the I-864 form)

So the shortest time in your case would be until he's a US Citizen.

True regards the length of time that the sponsor is ultimately responsible, however it helps that they recognize that this country's immigration system, for well over a hundred years, has been built on the process of sponsorship. It works.

Growing up I recall stories of my grandparents, my parents and other close relatives immigrating from Europe and the willingness of their sponsors. Many became friends for life. A few weeks ago my aged mother had a telephone call from the daughter of the couple that sponsored her from New York. So in the global pictures sponsorship is at the core of the immigration system set up to insure and help a connection to the immigrant and their new country.

Good luck and keep you head up!
