Hi everyone,

I have been filling out the I-864 document for a few days now for my wife in mexico. I as the petitioner will be a sponsor and I am filling out the I-864. I didn't make enought money last year so I will need a co-sponsor. My mom will be a relative co-sponsor and is filling out the I-864A document. Here are my questions:

Question #1:My mom filed a joint return with my step-dad last year. Together they made around 50K. If my mom only signs an I-864A document, will the National Visa Center look at the income for the joint return (50K), or just what my mom made last year?

Question #2:So will my step-dad also need to fill out an I-864A? And can he, being a step-dad, not my father?

Thanks so much for the help!!!

I have the same situation so I'm going to try to answer your questions with my utmost knowledge. :)

The co-sponsor needs to submit a separate I-864 that would be your mom.

If your mom alone made enough money to meet/exceed the poverty line, your step-dad does'nt need to fill I-864A. but otherwise your step-dad needs to fill I864.
