my wife started her first job last year september, she filed her taxes before we got married. well her estimated annual gross pay is below the poverty guidelines (18,387). my question is, who can we have as a joint sponsor? and what do they need to provide?

i read the instructions but the instruction on the I-864 form states that the person has to be part of your household? please help, this is the last part that we need to work on, and we'll be sending out our application packet

edit: also she got a promotion at work, if she is able to support me by herself, should she get a letter from her employer stating that she will make enough? and if so, will we still need a joint sponsor?

Co sponsor doesnt' need to be someone living in the household. She CAN count a persons income if they DO live in the household though...The co sponsor will need to fill out a form as well. I'm not sure which one I know there will be the right answer for this soon. Your wife, even if she doesn't meet the requirements will still be the MAIN sponsor.

Yes...she will definitely need a letter of employement as well as a few paystubs from the last several months and she must submit the last 3 yrs tax returns and if not provide info as to why she didnt file taxes.

She can also count any assets if she has any savings,stocks, etc..

Anyone who is a US citizen or greencard holder and living in the USA can be a co-sponsor. They need not live in the same state or be family. They will need to fill in the I-864 too, and provide the same proof (tax filing, paystubs etc).

If she makes comfortably above the povertyline now, no co-sponsor is needed. She should provide both a letter from the employer stating this, and some paystubs showing the new, higher salary.
