Bankruptcy should not make a difference.

Correct. A joint sponsor must meet the income requirement for their household plus the intending immigrant. Also, when using the I-134 Affidavit of Support, the sponsor cannot combine incomes to meet the requirement.

Thank you sooo much for your answer.I have one more question...does the co-sponsor has to live in America? Can we use someone that lives in Brazil ,but works for an international company.

It needs to be a permanent resident of the US or a US citizen.

THANK U, THANK U ,THANK U,THANK U ,THANK U :content:

Your joint sponsor will likely have to meet the 125% income amount. Check with the embassy/consulate to be sure.
