3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I am going to be a joint sponsor for my niece. My sister is the main sponsor. I will use my income to assist my sister meet the poverty guidelines. However, I have filed jointly with my wife for the past 3 years but I only want to use my income. Do I only use what I made, based on W2s to separate my income from my wife, or how can I only use my income to be a joint Sponsor when I have filed taxes jointly with my wife?

Thanks for the help.

Sometime uscis just wants spouse of joint sponsor to sign i864a as a consent to use family fund to sponsor someone, so they still rfe even though joint sponsor income is sufficient.

In your case, you need to sign i864 using your number exact on w2s along with your citizenship/LPR proof, you can explain on a letter that your income is enough already and separate from your joint tax return.
