Newbie posting my first question, I-864 sponsor requirements help needed

Newbie posting my first question, so thanks in advance for any help.

I’m originally from the USA, married in the UK (Dec 2013) and settled for 10 months in the UK under FLR(M). However our plans have change now and we are going to head back to the US.

So my questions are:

I haven’t had paid employment in the UK as my husband earns above average so I have been volunteering, also we have kept my condo (which is now ‘neutral’ on the mortgage) in the USA going as we have made the mortgage payments on it by transferring funds to my US bank account from our UK joint account, so when it comes to me as the sponsor (Affidavit of Support (I-864) I think) what is best?

I have no job in the US lined up nor does my husband, can a family member step in and act as sponsor?

Thanks,

If you are the US Petitioner, and you are not employed, you have no Current Annual Income to show support on the I-864, therefore yes, you will need a family member or someone to step up and be your JOINT sponsor. You still are required to have filed taxes if you had any income whatsoever in the UK (As well as any years before that) The visa may not depend on your income as far as Sponsoring with a Joint Sponsor, but they will still want to verify you have been paying taxes...or have a written statement why you have not.
