My mother (LPR)is the petitioner for my sister and she does not have ANY income in U.S. but she is retired in Brazil. My husband (her son-in-law) has a good income.

My question is: can he be the joint sponsor??? What should my mother answer about her income in the affidavit of support?? thanks

Yes, anyone can be a joint sponsor. Your mom should put 0 income if she doesn't make any money in the US.

I have the exact situation. Due to the economic crisis we are in right now, I was laid off about a year ago and few months after we received a notice from the NVC that her priority date is now current. Since I only get the Unemployment Benefits and it's not 125% above the poverty line for 3 people (me, my daughter, and her son), my daughter-in-law helped me with the I864. It's perfectly fine, it basically just say that they will be responsible for the persons on the form because the government wants to make sure they will not become a public charge.

The US taxes on worldwide income. All income should be reported.

Hi there, we are on the same boat. Do you mind if I ask what is your priority date that is now current? My mom is petiotioning for my 3 under 21 siblings who are in the Philippines and one of them is turning 21 in 8 months from today and i'm worried that a visa might not yet available before he turn 21. Thanks.

March 1999. Is your mom a LPR or a US citizen? when i petitioned my daughter i wasnt a citizen yet. i became a citizen not too long ago. under cspa, her category was automatically moved as daughter of a US Citizen in which she had to write to the DHS MLA to opt-out. with your siblings case, check when she petitioned them and refer to the cspa info online. I, myself is not clear how to calculate it and i dont wanna give wrong info.

Hi, thanks for the quick reply. My mom is an LPR, We are looking at the Visa Expedite request option (sending a letter to USCIS requesting to expedite visa). I don't see child aging out is one of the criteria though but It doesn't hurt to try. Our only second option would be if my brother aged out is to send an opt-out letter for my brother to stay in F2b category when my mother becomes a US citizen.

I appreciate your help!

Hi! I just want to know what form did your husband filled up? I-864 or I-864a? Are you guys living with your mom?

I have the same situation. My mom(LPR) petitioned my sister and no income and we live with here and shares the same address.

I'm just wondering if the ff is correct:

Mom (petitioner)- file I-864

Me(daughter)-file I-864a

my Husband (son-in law of petitioner)- file I-864 as joint sponsor or I-864a as household member?

Is your case already completed? How did it go? Appreciate your response. Thanks.

Hey

The correct form is the I864A - attatched to the sponsor's I864.

Let me know if you have any more questions .

My Mom is living with us now :-)

Good luck !!!
