I'm about to file for my AOS and wanted to know if my co sponsor could do the following:

He does not make enough on his own, he is short by a bit and his wife also does not make enough on her own, but as a couple they make far more then enough, is it possible for them both to fill out one I-864 or will that not work? Should I look for a new co-sponser? Thanks

Yes they can add their income together.

If they file a joint IRS return, it should show total income as a couple.

If they file Return as married filing separately then one provides an I-864, and the other provides I-864A


OUR TIME LINE Please do a timeline it helps us all, thanks.

Is now a US Citizen immigration completed Jan 12, 2012.

One of them will complete the I-864, and the other will complete the I-864A. You cannot have two people on the one I-864 but you CAN have two peoples income as long as the other person signs the I-864A which gives the permission to do so.

If a couple files that would count as an additional two people in the household, yes?

So beneficiary + couple = 3 person household?

Is that spouse of immigrant or spouse of co-sponsor (also a co-sponsor)?

As in, if the OP is having them both file as co-sponsors then the total income would need to meet the minimum for at least a four person household.

Couple (the 2 co-sponsors) + immigrant + spouse/fiance of immigrant = 4

Also, OP - if this couple has any children that they file as dependents on their tax, they will need to count these children as additional household members and the income minimum will increase.

No. The USC petitoner doesn't count in joint-sponsors household size. The USC petitioner would file for a 2 person household (himself and immigrant) on his I-864. Joint-sponsor would do THEIR household size (co-sponsor, spouse, any children + immigrant/s) on their own I-864.

Also, OP - if this couple has any children that they file as dependents on their tax, they will need to count these children as additional household members and the income minimum will increase.

Yes.

Ahh I get it. Thanks for the clarification, I was a little confused.
