Hello All

I'm new to the forum and I have a couple of questions I can't seem to find elsewhere.

My fiance is on disability and lives with his parents, who are also on social security/disability, and his nephew (who is still at high school and not working).

We are planning to ask one of our friends to be a co-sponsor but I'm unsure how many members of my fiance's household would need to be included in the income calculation, would it be all four of them plus our friend and his wife (7) or would it be just myself and my fiance and our friend and his wife (4)?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, i'm finding all of this really overwhelming.

thanks

Michelle

Michelle,

The co-sponsor only has to include those people who are financially dependent upon him/her. For example, if the co-sponsor is supporting your fiance, his mother and his father, then the co-sponsor needs to meet the minimum criteria for supporting a household of five (him/herself, your fiance, his mother, his father and you).

However, if the co-sponsor is only supporting himself and no one depends financially upon him/her, then they only need to meet the criteria for supporting a household of 2. The co-sponsor him/herself, and you. Your fiance would not be included as a dependent here, unless, of course he is financially dependent dependent upon the co-sponsor.

I don't have the link to the 2008 income requirements but they can be found on this site easily.
