Poverty Guidelines?

Hi,

We have a question on poverty guideline. They have a poverty guideline for the household starting from two people in the household, so does it mean that is the petitioner and an intending immigrant as one household?

Another question, is about the joint sponsor, does the joint sponsor need to include the intending immigrant as part of their household size? What is the joint sponsor's income? Is it his/her income only, or is it also including his/her spouse's income altogether?

You are right for the 1st question. It counts the people that are already in the household and the intended immigrant (eg: a person living alone / US Citizen and the spouse / the intended immigrant)(1 US citizen+1AOS = 2 people in the household)

For the second question: yes, it counts the person as a household member (potential); if the co - sponsor has an income over the poverty limit for his household (co-sponsor+his/her family+intended immigrant = X people in the household) it's no need to add the income from his other members of the household. If it has to do it, it will be an extra form to fill out.

I hope that i was pretty coherent :)

Good luck

What would be the extra form to fill out if he/she would need to add income from his/her spouse?

The spouse would sign an I-864A.

What is an I-864A and would one of them need to be making 125% over poverty, or could both persons combine their total incomes to make up the 125% over poverty requirement?

It's an additional form that the spouse needs to sign - basically asks for the same information as the I-864, just recognizes that there is another person whose income is also being counted.

I think you can combine them to make over 125%, but I'm not entirely sure. My mom & stepdad each make over 125%, but I had my stepdad do the I-864 & my mom do the I-864A.
