Your mom to sponsor you should make 125% over the poverty guideline for 5 people: herself, you, your husband and your 2 sons. If she doesn't you can use assets to reach that amount, but remember that the value of the assets must be at least six times the difference between the requested amount and your mother's income (if i'm not mistaken, i hope other vj members will confirm this).

I'm not sure how it would work out if you and your sons moved out now; theorically if you were able to prove that your sons are totally dependent on you and you only, your mother would have to reach the 125% limit for just 2 people: herself and your husband. Again, I hope some other member will help with this :)

I don't think anyone has yet mentioned this, but I believe it is your mom's income that must support everyone if you are going to have her be the co-sponsor. I.e. It is not you and your mother's income combined. She has to meet it all on her own. At least I am pretty sure of that.

so itd be both mine an my moms income combined plus assets, what would that include? house, bank? the house is being paid up eg mortgage confused as to how this works with the co sponser,

The household size is 5; mom, 2 kids, you, and husband.

You will file the I-864 as the primary sponsor/petitioner.

Your mother can file either the I-864 as a joint sponsor or the I-864a as a household member. It's better to file the I-864a because your income and your mother's income will be combined to determine if you are 125% above the poverty line for 5 people. If your mother files the I-864, your income and your mother's income cannot be combined - your mother will have to make 125% above the poverty line for 5 people.

ok so say i moved out, an i dont make enough for the 4 of us, effectively id need a co sponsor, now my dad has said he will sponsor my husband, he is single man living alone so he would only need which he does make enough to support him an my husband as i cant so therefore i need a co, have i got it right? its rather confusing, so basically i cant support hubby on my own when im in my own place, so my co sponsor, now dad, will do it, he is single man on his own an makes enough to cover 2 people past poverty line, so there should be no problems? so confused

Hi Steph,

Please ignore my prior post, I got it plain wrong.

As the petitioner, you must file an I-864 on behalf of your husband. You will count yourself, your two dependent children, and the intending immigrant (your husband) for a household size of four.

Here are your options for a joint sponsor;

1. Your mom could file a second I-864 as a joint sponsor. She will count herself and the intending immigrant for a household size of two. However, when the joint sponsor lives with the petitioner and is related, some embassies have required the joint sponsor file the I-864a as a household member. As a household member, your mother's income would be combined with your and together you would have to count you, your mother, your two dependent children, and the intending immigrant for a household size of five. If you move out, your mother would be fine as a joint sponsor with a household size of two.

2. Your dad could file a second I-864 as a joint sponsor. He will count himself and the intending immigrant for a household size of two. You do not need to move out of your mother's house to have your dad be the joint sponsor.

In addition, anyone submitting an I-864 or I864a for your husbnad must count their dependents and legal permanent residents they petitioned for where an Affidavit of Support obligation is still enforceable.

Good luck. Sorry about my prior post causing you stress.
