Joint sponsorship and affadavit of support

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello. I am to be sponsored by my USC son, and am a little confused about the affadavit of support. He is just under the poverty level for his household and so I need an additional sponsor, and I have someone who will do this for me. Should I make that person my only sponsor, and not bother with my sons income at all as it is low? Or would that not look good? Should they both sponsor me? I would appreciate advice.

no, the petitioner is always the primary sponsor, the other person will be your son's joint sponsor

even if your son had $0 income, he is obligated to file the i864 and mark, I am the sponsor

the other person will mark on his or her i864, I am the only joint sponsor
