Hi everyone,
1) My fiancé's tax return for 2016 is less than poverty level. If we don't want to have cosponsor, is it possible to go with savings or it is risky? How the savings should look like? If there is a big deposit will it look suspicious?

2) if not can i  put my biological mothers husband as my co sponsor will it look good. he owns good assets but due to disabilities he don`t file tax returns will it be ok and we need to fill i-864 form separately right???

3) i have one more query that she is adopting her sisters son which is in process and  who is dependent on her but we didn't mentioned him before on any other form if we mention him on i-134 will it be ok ??? and she is getting income from state as foster care too can we take it as income but no taxes are deducted from it can we add it too to count income requirements..???

guys plz helps us out we need ur help... 

looking forward for your all replies 

thank you

1. Your assets would need to be really high, and yes a one come amount placed in savings would likely be questioned. If she works below poverty level where did the money come from? I'm sure if she could prove that, for example, she won the lottery, maybe it would be different. Otherwise she obviously has help from friends/fam and why couldn't they be a co-sponsor? 

 

2. Is your biological mothers husband a US citizen? He HAS to file taxes and all his back taxes to be a sponsor. It's also questionable to use one of your relatives as a sponsor, maybe it would look like your family is trying to get you there instead of it being a real relationship. 

 

3.  I will admit I don't know any rules on whether or not foster care counts as income - I would say no. It's not money she gets for babysitting, it's money for the child's expenses. And if it is a dependent the child should have been mentioned and she will need to be above poverty level for a family the size including the child.

An asset like a car won't raise you. You will likely need a co-sponsor. It can be any US citizen - friend or fam, but they must be up to date with their taxes.
