Hi vjers!

How long are initial joint sponsors require to support the intending immigrant? If I cannot afford to sponsor this year but can next year, do we still need to use the same joint sponsor or can we just not use them at all.

Thanks!

Because you are filing for the CR1, the joint sponsorsip will be for 10 years.

Sponsorship last until the immigrant has worked 40 quarters ( which can be more than 10 years if they are not employed) , leaves the country permanently, becomes a US citizen or dies.


This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

10 years if the immigrants work and accumulate 40 work quarters. If the immigrants remains LPRs without meeting the 40 quarter requirments, the sponsors are responsible until either the sponsor or the immigrant dies under the I-864 obligations.

CR1 will need to show that last year taxes (2009 or 2010) and present job exceeds or meet the 125% proverty level for your household size.(2009 or 2010)

So lets say that I cannot sponsor him myself this year but will be able to next year, can we use a joint sponsor this year but either change joint sponsors or not use a joint sponsor if I can provide over %125 of the poverty rate income myself? Basically, can we change joint sponsors within that 10 years if we need to?

Hello,

I only made $9,000 -ish in 2010. I was only working part of the year since I was finishing my last quarter in college and went to go visit my wife for 3 months after I graduated. I graduated now and have been working full time since September 2010. Will I have any problems if I show them my current level of income and pay check stubs, even though I did not make enough money in 2010 according to my tax return? I am an October Filer.

How the sponsor gets off the hook has already been explained. You are always the primary sponsor qualified or not but you becoming qualified doesn't let anybody off the hook who submitted an I-864.
