We are not at this stage yet but we are trying to plan everything ahead so that there are no delays when the time comes. I'm planning to have my mom as my joint sponsor since I don't quite make enough on my own. She makes enough on her own to be my joint sponsor (I'm assuming she would need to qualify for 125% for a household of 4; herself, her husband, my husband, and I, and she more than qualifies) and has already agreed, but does her husband (my stepfather) need to file an I-184a as well since they are married? Or does only she need to do it?

The husband does need to provide an I-864, but you do not need to be counted in your mother's household.  You provide an I-864.  Either your mother or her husband provide the same and the other provides an I-864a.  Since your mother qualifies on her own, she need not combine income with you, and unless she claims you as a dependant on her tax returns, she need not count you in her household, no matter where you live.

hi

 

nope, you don't count, unless you are her dependent under her taxes

 

if not, her household size is 3 and yours, 2

 

you still have to file the i864 as the primary sponsor

 

immigration might request the i864A for your stepfather

Thanks! So they both provide an I-184 or does he provide an I-184a?

One provides one and the other provides the other.  Usually, it's best for the one with the most income to do the I-864, but it's a joint obligation anyway.
