Is the financial support portion straightforward? i.e, no gray area?

My parents will help me sponsor my wife as I am abroad with her and I do not have any U.S income.

My question is, as long as the co sponsor can prove that they make above the requirement, can there be any other issues that might arise? I.E, is there any gray or subjectives areas that the interviewing officer might bring up?

For example, I have a home back in the states, which I rent out and make monthly income on. However, almost all of it goes to the mortgage. Will they look in to things like that?

I ask because we can prove adequate income, but if I dont need to go through proving assets, appraising the home, etc etc, then I'd rather not.

Have you looked at the form? That's what they'll be using to assess you, and you can see how things get broken down: http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-864.pdf As you can see, it's literally just "how much money does the household have at their disposal", rather than asking where all the money goes.

The poverty guidelines are such that an assumption is made about them about cost of living, which is how they're derived, so further questions won't be asked about how the money is spent.

Here's the raw numbers, if you haven't seen them: http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-864p.pdf

If your income is enough, no need to list assets.

That being said, officers must deny when you are under the 125%. They can still deny if you are over, and it sometimes happens when tyhe income is very close to the threshold, or the job is very very new, or temporary.
