85 Years Old Joint Sponsor?

Hi, Every one!

My future husband and I intend to marry this coming December in US and then I return to my country to apply for a CR-1/IR-1 for my minor son and I. My question is concerning to the affidavit of support requirements, because my future husband's income does not meet the required for immigration that he may be my sponsor. His mother is a pensioner and is willing to be his joint sponsor, but she is 85 years old.

:help: Based on this, I would like to know if any one here could answer for sure if the immigration laws determine a limit of age for a person to be accepted as a joint sponsor for a CR-1/IR-1 purpose.

If so, could you give me the source of that information, please?

I appreciate your help before hand.

Thank you so much! :)

Thanks

based on intution, i don't think your mom's pension is enough to support 3 people. it is also questionable too. maybe she has property(ies) and that might work too.

There is no formal age limit. However, I would recommend you look for a sponsor other than an elderly relative. Affidavits of support are found acceptable based on a judgment call by a Consular officer as to how likely it is, the intending immigrant will become a public charge. Elderly sponsors are generally not expected to actually be around to meet any sponsorship obligations related to repaying the government BECAUSE their obligation ends with their death. Better for the spouse to improve income. Short of that, a more viable joint sponsor would be advised.

Thank you, Guys. I actually didn't inform you that I myself have a lifetime pension that is over 100% of the 125% we need for our family required. And I will continue to receive the pension even after becoming an US citizen. So my future mother in love would only add more information to our papers. She does not have any property.

Any way, Thank you for your help.

If your income will continue after you leave Brazil, you can add that income to your husband's income in order to qualify. See the I-864 instructions for how to do that.

Yes, this is right. I have read that form instruction you suggested and that was why we chose to marry first and apply for a CR-1, instead of a K-1.

But we always feel a little insecure when the matter is money :wacko: - we all know how it is sooooo important to US.

Any way, I guess we will be all right! Thank you again :thumbs:
