Joint Sponsor for Adjustment of Status through family based visas

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am filing for adjustment of status this summer. I am really lost in all the paperworks. Can you please help me regarding form I-864. My husband do not have enough income to support both of us. SO i was thinking about making my father in law my sponsor. My Questions is if i make both my husband and father-in-law sponsor. Do they( husband and father-in-law ) have to fill 2 separate form I-864 because on part 1 of the form, i can only write one name. Could you please help me with joint sponsorship paperwork. I would greatly appreciate your help.

Thank You :)

You are correct, each of them have to fill out the I-864 form. you need to have IRS transcripts for the past 3 years (2015, 2014, 2013), pay stubs, letter of employer stating the current income for both, W-2
