Joint sponsor spouse need to fill out an I-864A?

Hello Everyone, 

Thanks ahead to anyone that has any knowledge of this topic and any advice or ideas.:) 

I'm my wife's sponsor and we are currently in Taiwan, where she is a resident. I couldn't include Taiwan income that won't continue when we move back to the States, so I had my dad fill out the I-864 as a joint sponsor. He is the sole earner, and my mom is a housewife. They both live together in American, and they file taxes jointly. My father's income (not assets) covers the amount necessary for sponsorship. After my wife's interview the embassy here (AIT) sent a request that my mom fill out an I-864A and sign. Does she count as a household member of the joint sponsor? Does anyone know why her I-864A form and signature is needed if her income is not needed to meet the minimum income requirement? 


Also, one other question, as my mom fills out the I-864A, does she fill in all the same financial information as my dad did on his I-864, as they file taxes jointly? Or should she fill out by herself, by which I mean list no income, as she makes no income independently, and their assets are not being used to cover the amount of the requirement?
