Co Sponsor and Financial Aide

OK I have a nephew who I may choose to help with being a joint sponsor ( mind you I already have 3 under me currently ) , however he wants to apply for Financial aide( in the near future ) to go to school. Is this considered government assistance?


Why is it that the only one who can stop the crying is the one who started it in the first place?

I'm so glad I found this forum topic. We were just issued an NOA-2, and now I'm starting to get the paperwork ready for the interview, specifically the I-134. Right now I am full time student, in Pharmacy School. By the time I get married with my fiance I will be entering my third year of school. I live off of financial aid and a part time job that I have as an intern at walgreens. Also I have a savings account, and My fiance and I have an onlne business that has a lot of revenue (in this is the revenue that we will be using to live off of plus my loans until he gets his Authorization to work). So I was debating on whether to have my mother as a co-sponsor or not. She's a nurse therefore her income is way above the poverty line.

I know that this question has been asked a million times, but I just want to clarify, should I go ahead and have my mom co-sponsor or should I be the only sponsor? Is there anywhere on this site where I can get a clear explanation or sound advice? Thanks a lot everyone. Feliz Navidad ;)
