Hi everyone,

I need some help in preparing the I-864 for my parent's immigration. I am a US citizen and work P/T only. With my husband's salary, originally, we can well sponsor my parents. However, my husband lost his job last year and now still unemployed. In 2010, my family income was 25K which is below the required 28K required by a household size of 4 (125% of poverty line). We don't have children. My questions are:

1. Now, my husband is not a good choice as a sponsor. Is it better to find another person instead of him as a sponsor?

2. how many sponsors can I submit (besides my husband)? In my mind, only two sponsors are allowed including myself. If I can find a couple who is capable to sponsor, will this couple be treated as one sponsor or two sponsors?

3. Do sponsors must be my relatives? I saw item 8 in I-864A relationship to sponsor, options are limited to spouse, daughter/son, parent, brother/sister and other dependent. However, my impression tells me that friends can be sponsors too.

4. To my new sponsor(s), what qualified annual income/asset I should looking for?

Please give advices, I very appreciate it.

I think that you can have two joint sponsors and yourself as primary if I am interpreting the instructions correctly. Also, as a sponsor, you or anyone else can count the income of anyone in their household with the I-864A to add their income as well (so your husband can be a household member on YOUR original sponsorship). You are the main sponsor who is the relative, other joint sponsors do not have to be related. Joint sponsors can also split up the intending immigrants if they do not make enough for all. So your one friend could joint sponsor just your mother.

Hi everyone,

However, my husband lost his job last year and now still unemployed. In 2010, my family income was 25K which is below the required 28K required by a household size of 4 (125% of poverty line). We don't have children. My questions are:

1. Now, my husband is not a good choice as a sponsor. Is it better to find another person instead of him as a sponsor?

Yes, it is better to find another sponsor, because he is unemployed and his 2010 tax return would below requirements

2. how many sponsors can I submit (besides my husband)? In my mind, only two sponsors are allowed including myself. If I can find a couple who is capable to sponsor, will this couple be treated as one sponsor or two sponsors?

Yourself, plus another sponsor is 2. The couple sponsor will be count as 1 AOS if they live in the same household.

3. Do sponsors must be my relatives? I saw item 8 in I-864A relationship to sponsor, options are limited to spouse, daughter/son, parent, brother/sister and other dependent. However, my impression tells me that friends can be sponsors too.

Anyone can sponsor you, the form I-864A is only use when they are the same address as yours. But the sponsor have have to file and submit the same docs as you if they do not live the same address.

4. To my new sponsor(s), what qualified annual income/asset I should looking for?

Not sure about this, but to my understanding, the poverty guideline will be first including yourself + how many people you petitioning + the co-sponsors themselves and any dependent living the same household with the co-sponsor.

Please give advices, I very appreciate it.

Good luck.

Many thanks to amykathleen2005 and Jason_do.

Jason said 'The couple sponsor will be count as 1 AOS if they live in the same household', I don't quite understand what's that '1 AOS', Would you explain? Thank you.
