Help with AOS

Ok, so this is my confusing situation. I have petitioned my husband, I am a USC living in the Dominican Republic since we married in 2003, so that the process moves a little faster I filed I 130 using my mailing address in NY which I was told is ok since I have to establish domicile there anyway. My big confusion and concern is the following,

1. I´ve been living here I have not been employed in the US for the past 7 years but I am employed in DR, when filing i864 I´m guessing that for q. 22 I choose option d right?

2. My brother will co-sponsor and he makes enough money to co-sponsor my husband and his family, he is living at the same address as my mailing address, so can this be counted as living in the same household or not? if yes then I count him on i 864 q. 21 option g right? and then on 24 b I list his name and earnings and then he files I 864 A?

3. Since I have no U.S income what should I do on question 25?

Your response will be greatly appreciated. TX

I'm not totally sure how to answer all of your questions. But I'll try to help

What Is the Purpose of This Form?

How Should I Complete This Form?

Department of Homeland SecurityU.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services

OMB No. 1615-0075; Expires 10/31/10

Print clearly or type your answers using CAPITAL letters.

Attach a separate sheet of paper (or more sheets ifnecessary);

This form is required for most family-based immigrants andsome employment-based immigrants to show that they haveadequate means of financial support and that they are notlikely to become a public charge. For more information aboutForm I-864, or to obtain related forms please contact:

-The USCIS website (www.uscis.gov);

-The National Customer Service Center (NCSC) telephoneline at 1-800-375-5283 TTY: (1-800-767-1833); or

-Your local USCIS office by using Infopass.

Q1: I'm not sure really. I the basis of this form is for the U.S. to fill comfortable with a immigrant moving to the States who will NOT be a public charge. (Meaning you or someone else, like a sponsor will cover all of their living costs and that they have enough money to do so.)

Q2: I don't see a problem with you and your sponsor living in the same house (you both are members of the same household). As long has he makes enough to help sponsor your husband it should be ok).

Q3: Maybe you can attach a letter explaining your current situation. Although you do not have any American assets/income, you do have a means of income in a foreign residency. If you do Chose to file under the status of "unemployed", just make your brother the "sole sponsor" for your husband.

I hoped this helps.
