Changing joint sponsor

Hi all. We needed a joint sponsor in order to file my husband's AOS so a friend said he'd help us out, filled out the paperwork and we sent everything off back in Feb. We got back letters saying they needed financial info from me so I called the service line to get some more info and turned out that he (the friend) filled out the wrong form to joint sponsor. We tried to contact him to get him to fill out the right ones but he seems to have disappeared off the face of the planet. After a couple weeks we decided it probably best to change sponsors since this "friend" had turned out to be so flaky. We got another friend to be our joint sponsor and he filled out the proper paperwork and got it all to us, we just need to send it in.

My question is, how do I address this with USCIS now? Do I just explain in a letter that we lost contact with the previous sponsor and we'd like to change sponsors or do I need to call them or what? Our time is running short on returning the paperwork so I want to make sure I get it right but somehow I need to get the previous joint sponsor off our file as he's not been in contact with us since February and has left his job that qualified him to be our joint sponsor.

Any helpful advice appreciated!

You have an RFE letter. Send it back with the new sponsor's

  1. I-864
  2. his 2011 tax return including W2(s)
  3. another proof of his income
  4. proof of his US citizenship or greencard
  5. anything else the RF letter asked for concerning your paperwork

Write a cover letter saying you are sending information from a new joint sponsor, Mr. Jay Smith and that Mr. Ray Jones will no longer be a joint sponsor. The original guy isn't actually a sponsor because he hasn't got complete info to approve, but you can explain there is a new one easily enough.

Look over the forms he fills out before you send them. If you didn't know they weren't right the first time, make sure you know now.
