Remove a Co-sponsor

Hope any of you can help me with my problem and point me to the right direction.

I am a permanent residence. I got my 10-yr green card when I got here 3 years ago. When I applied for my green card in Thailand, I had my in-law as a co-sponsor because my husband lived and worked in Thailand and couldn't sponsor me. I applied for my citizenship 2 months ago but the case is still pending because there is a big delay on the process at the moment. Last time I checked, it may take 4-5 more months to get my citizenship. Things seem to be fine until recently.

My husband and I have some domestic issues with the in-law. They threaten me that they are going to submit a letter to the homeland security so that they will no longer be my co-sponsor on my green card. They probably hope that I will be kicked out of the country..I guess. As far as I know, as soon as I become a citizen, I will not need to have a sponsor or co-sponsor. But I am not YET. If they are actually crazy enough to contact USCIS, what should I do in this case? Any good suggestion?

Thanks!!

P.S. I am not sure where I should post my question. So I posted it here.

Five ways to remove I-864 sponsorship are:

  1. Sponsored immigrant dies.
  2. Sponsor dies.
  3. Immigrant works and is creditited with 40 quarters of work (10 Years)
  4. Immigrant leaves the USA and abandons the green-card.
  5. Immigrant naturalizes and becomes a US citizen.

Your husband should have been your primary sponsor it is required.

The in-law can do what ever they want, USCIS will do nothing, you have un-conditional lawful permanent residence, and the co-sponsor cannot withdraw sponsorship unless one of the above five conditions has been satisfied.

40 quarters rarely equates to 10 years in an ongoing marriage where both spouses work. The immigrant will also be credited with work quarters even if they don't work, but their spouse does.

I wish people would stop mentioning anything to do with 10 years in relation to sponsorship obligation ending -- it's misleading and inaccurate.

Could you tell me more about "40 quarters of work"? How is it calculated? Could you provide an example of the calculation, especially when you mentioned"The immigrant will also be credited with work quarters even if they don't work, but their spouse does."? I think your information will be very helpful not just for me but for others who don't know an accurate info.

Thanks!
