Your mom needs to fill out I-864. If your mom's income qualifies to sponsor under the poverty guidelines, then her husband doesn't have to fill out a form. He will have to be counted as a member of her household where the I-864 requests the number. If you want to include her husband's income toward the amount that's necessary under the guidelines, then he needs to fill out I-864A.

You also have to fill out I-864, even if your income doesn't qualify to sponsor.

I agree with grrrrreat on this. And yes, your mom will need to send a copy of birth cert/nat cert, along with paystub or letter of employment & 2011 Tax returns (and proof of any other income). I think you are confused because they file joint taxes but if your mom's income is 125% of poverty guideline(for all members of the household incl. you & sponsored immigrant)she doesn't need to have husband fill out the I864A.

Just wanted to point out that her mom would not have to include her in her own household count unless the OP is actually her dependent. Simply living in the same house does not make you part of the household count for an affidavit of support.

Ahhh, that's true. Only the intending immigrant and any other dependants in this case. Good Catch!

So me nor my daughter will be counted in there house hold only my husband correct? i do have some income but not enough to cover us so i as well file the I-864

Right. Living in the same house does not, in and of itself, constitute being part of the same household. I'll add that if only your Mother acts as sponsor, you'll need to document just what parts of the income on the 1040 are hers and hers alone. Tax return transcripts don't do this, but complete tax returns with W2 will do just fine.

OK IM THIS MAKES NO SENSE..WHEN I SPOKE TO A LAWYER THEY SAID SHE WOULD ONLY FILE A 1-864A? AND WHEN I WAS LOOKING AT THEI-864 IT ALSO SAYS A I-864A SINCE I AM COMBINING MY INCOME WITH HERS?

The lawyer was wrong. Maybe didn't understand your situation. A head of household needs to provide an I-864. It's the only way to get their household size properly counted. Unless your mother's income is NOT enough to qualify on her own, do NOT combine income. Do as instructed above.

my mom makes 42,000 a year

So, your mom's household size will be, herself + her husband + the immigrant + any other persons she lists as a dependent on her tax return. If this ends up being three persons, $42k is enough. This is based on the guidelines which can be found by googling I-864P . As prior posts explained, she will file I-864 together with the documentation required by the form and its instructions. Your mom will need to prove her income using W-2 forms as well as provide a 2011 tax return.

You will also file a separate I-864 as the person petitioning for the immigrant, even if your income doesn't qualify.

Then "she" doesn't need to combine income with YOU to qualify as the sole joint sponsor. If you can document her personal income with a W2 form for 2011 and a pay stub for now, no need for Dad to provide any I-864a. You provide your own I-864 as required, even if you have zero income.
