You have to determine your household size by looking at the instructions of the I-864. Then you go to the I-864P in the link above to see what you have to make, if you don't make the amount required, you need a joint sponsor. Here is a link with the I-864:

If you don't meet the income requirements you need a joint sponsor who meets the amount for his/her household, or you can combine income with certain household members. A substitute sponsor is for when the petitioner dies.

If you fail to reach the requirement, you need to find a joint sponsor or secondary sponsor? Are this 2 terms just the same? Or is there another type of sponsor?

I'm sorry, but I don't understand. Are you the petitioner or the beneficiary? Does the petitioner make enough money on his/her own for his/her household size, according to the I-864? Will the petitioner be combining his/her income with a household member or will he/she use a joint sponsor? Please explain your situation in order to get an accurate answer. Thanks.

The joint sponsor income will be based on his household number not on the household who is petitioning? Sorry, just want to clarify, thanks.

If I'm the petitioner, and my income falls below the requirement for my household number so I should need a joint sponsor right? Both of us have to fill each I-864? May I ask what are the important documents I needed to prepare as heads up?

Ok. If you don't make enough, you have two options. You can either combine your income with certain household members or you can use a joint sponsor.

When combining your income with a household member, they must fill out an I-864A. If you use a joint sponsor, you cannot combine your income with them and they must submit a separate I-864. You as the petitioner have to submit an I-864, regardless of whether you are using a joint sponsor or not.

You have to look at the instructions for the I-864 in order to determine your household size, it should be you, the intending immigrants, your spouse, children/dependents even if they don't live with you, and anyone you have sponsored for LPR before who is still subject to the I-864.

Do you have anyone in your household who can combine their income with yours, or someone who can be a joint sponsor that makes enough on their own? A joint sponsor doesn't have to be related to you or the intending immigrant.

The docs you need are, proof of current income and taxes for the last 3 years. Additional docs vary depending on whether you will use a joint sponsor, household member, or are using assets to meet income. You have to explain your situation in order to get a specific answer though.
