Does your wife list her dad as a dependant on her tax returns? If so yes, he can fill the I-864A. Just living together in the same house is not enough, there needs to be a financial connection.

Normally a married woman would not be a dependant on their fathers return

If the father makes enough on his own he can be a co sponsor.

Yes but the father could be a dependent of the petitioner. If neither is a dependent of the other, no combining of income. The father would need to qualify on his own, not combine income and would use the I-864. Either way, the father is second in line, so the obligation is the same.

No, there's no trick. If the petitioner does not qualify as the sponsor, they must find a willing, qualified sponsor or there will be no visa.

Your wife needs to find a willing and qualified joint sponsor. There is nothing for YOU to do unless you can help her do that.

Explain to the father what exactly he would, and would NOT be responsible for.

Ask for a co-sponsor amongst friends, neighbours, co-workers, at the mosque etc.

No he cannot combine income with your wife, there is no way. He must be a joint sponsor on his own merit, if your want to use his income, and he must sign the form. no way around it.

When I filed for my wife, I was a student, and as a result I did not meet the income requirement. However, I lived with my parents at the time, and so my father filed an I-864A as a household member who was related to me--and in fact I had to provide proof of this relationship via my birth certificate. I was *not* a dependent on my father's income tax return, and that had no bearing on my application. We were approved without any issues.

If you look here at the form I-864A's instructions, it says very clearly:

For purposes of this form, a "household member" is:

A relative who has the same principal residence as the sponsor and is related to the sponsor as a spouse, adult child, parent, or sibling;

A relative or other person whom the sponsor has lawfully claimed as a dependent on the sponsor's most recent Federal income tax return even if that person does not live at the same residence as the sponsor;

The intending immigrant, in certain circumstances. (See "How Can the Intending Immigrant Be Considered a Household Member"?)

From my personal experience and my understanding of the form's instructions, as long as the co-sponsor lives with the sponsor (your wife) and is a blood relative, you will have no problem using form I-864A. If I am mistaken I would greatly appreciate someone's explanation of why, because this is exactly what I did to bring my wife over.

That being said, Volkan, your father-in-law needs to understand that this form obligates him in exactly the same way that Form I-864 does. He is signing a legally binding contract saying that for as long as you are an LPR, he will financially support you. There is no material difference between a co-sponsor and a joint sponsor when it comes to legal liability; the I-864A is just a simpler form to fill out. If he believes that the I-864A somehow exonerates him from this responsibility he is mistaken and should have this perception corrected immediately.
