Greetings Brown Horse,

1) Here you are not correct. If your wife filed the petition with USCIS, then she, in fact, is the primary sponsor because she started the process by filing the petition, regardless if she had a job or not. Therefore, you are NOT the sole and primary sponsor. She is the primary sponsor and you are a co-sponsor.

2) Re: I-864 Question No.8: because of the fact I mentioned in 1) above. Here, your wife needs to check BOTH 'YES' boxes.

ALSO does she need to answer question#25 regarding federal tax return. I (husband) filed tax return jointly but she did not have any income

Re: I-864 Question No.25: While you may have prepared the tax forms and sent them yourself, it is in fact filed as a JOINT tax return and therefore you have filed a tax return together, and so, she has in fact 'filed a tax return'. No. 25 DOES apply to her as well, regardless if she had a job/income or not. So, this information needs to be provided.

Your I-864A will provide the additional proof of required financial backing (your income) that will backup and support her sponsorship for her mother.

ON A DIFFERENT MATTER: Can you please update/correct your vital information i.e. 1) you have no country listed for the immigrant 2) Your visa type shows as IR-1/CR-1 (which is a immigrant spouse of a US citizen). An immigrant visa for a parent of a US Citizen is IR-5 category. Also, be sure to keep your time-line currently updated. All the aforementioned information is important for those of us who try to give assistance to others.

Hope this information to your questions helps makes things more understandable.

Best Wishes,

~Bleauwolf

Thanks B!

You're correct. She is the sponsor and I am a household member/cosponsor. Sorry late night posting on MB threw me off. Thanks again for your help! I checked yes on both boxes and also responded to Federal Tax Question.

I forgot to ask you one more questions (Other members on the board are most welcome to answer and thanks in advance)

Since we filed tax Jointly, Do I need to include most recent tax year amount as well as past two tax year amount on wife's i-864 form ? Or Do I put zero on her form and show those amount on i-864a that I fill out as a cosponsor ?
