A joint sponsor needs their own I-864 form with their own supporting documentation. The petitioner needs their own I-864 as well with supporting documents regardless of the income amount. Remember that a joint sponsor cannot combine their income with the petitioner.

A joint sponsor can be any USC, national, or LPR with income at or above 125% of the poverty level for their state. They can live in any US state or territory and doesn't have to be related to either the petitioner or the intending immigrant.

The spouse doesn't have to fill out a separate form unless his/her income will be combined with the joint sponsor. If the joint sponsor doesn't make enough on his/her own or will be combining his/her income with his/her spouse then the spouse will need an I-864A to be submitted with the joint sponsor's I-864. The joint sponsor must include his/her spouse and any minor children and/or tax dependents regardless of where they live as part of his/her household size.

By the way if the spouse doesn't need to fill out an I-864A because the joint sponsor makes enough, then he/she needs to prove his/her share of the income. For example in addition to the tax transcripts he/she would need their w2 form and the letter of employment, which is needed anyway. I just wanted to clarify that since people receive checklists when the joint sponsor is married and don't make the joint sponsor's income clear.
