Hello everyone.

I am new in here. I need help about using joint sposor.

1. If my husband's income does not meet the requirement, is there any other choice to solve this problem if we do not have any joint sponsor?

2. If we use two joint sponsors , is it possible to include their income together to meet the requirement?

3. I have a child with my husband. Is there any advantage to get the visa if my husband's income does not meet the requirement.

4. How do we count joint sponsor's household size ? if he is single and he does not sposor anyone else. Would we count 1. Him 2. My child and 3. Me?

Hope someone can help me.

Thank you

Hi and welcome to Visa Journey. Great site by the way.

1. If your husband does not meet the minimum requirement, then the only other option is to secure a joint sponsor. They will need 2009 and earlier tax returns, pay stubs and a letter of employment so if he doesn't meet it, the jt sponsor is the only other way.

2. Two joint sponsor should put you over the minimum threshold - check the poverty guidelines and you'll find it. Yes they will include both sponsors incomes to ensure you get over the min requirement.

3. You need to include your household. A joint sponsor may be someone living with you or not living with you. Also check the forms required for the I 864 - if the joint sponsor lives in the home, he or she must file an I 864A form, and your husband who is still the sponsor is required to complete an I 864....if the other sponsor does NOT live in your home, then that sponsor complets a separate I 864 and not the I864A....check the forms and you'll see what I mean. I don't believe you include the sponsor in the household size unless that person lives with you and then I believe you have to include everyone who would be a dependent in the home ie children.

Good luck.

Thank you for your hlep "zenaxe"

As question in item 3. I wonder now do i count the joint sponsor's household size.

He is sigle and doesn't have anyone who would be a dependent.

But I have my son who is a dependent.

Is it right to count 3 which are 1. My joint sponsor 2. My son 3. Myself?

Does the joint sponsor live with you in your household? I would count everyone in this case ie you, your son, husband and joint sponsor, total of 4. As far as I know, you only count the people in the household; the joint sponsor is agreeing to sponsor and support the size of the family. If he is single and no dependents, then only worry about your own household size. Check the I 864 form on joint sponsors as it may give you the information you are looking for. And remember they are two forms depending on if the joint sponsor resides in the household or not. If he does then he files the I 864A and if he does not, then he files the I 864. Remember your hubby and the joint sponsor have to complete the forms. Your husband only completes the I 864 - the joint sponsor also but depending on which form based on where he lives

Good luck

Using two joint sponsors only works if they are part of the same household. They don't need to be part of the petitioner's household but income of non-household members cannot be combined.
