Hi, I have a question about a joint sponsor while filing for AOS.

My wife’s income is insufficient to meet the minimum requirements since she’s a student and we’re aware that she can add her household members’ income to meet that requirement. But that option is not possible for us either so we’re looking for a joint sponsor.

So my question is can our joint sponsor add their household members’ income to the joint sponsor’s income in case him/herself can’t meet the requirements?

Thank you in advance, any help would be much appreciated! Good day

Yes. For example, if the joint sponsor is her father, who is not part of her/your household, then he can use his income for a second I-864 (your wife is always your primary sponsor and must fill out an I-864), and her mother/his wife can fill out an I-864a, and so can any of their children who live with them, or any other family member who lives with them. You can only have two I-864s (sponsors), but each I-864 can have as many I-864a forms as required, though don't go overboard.

So if our joint sponsor is my wife’s female friend then can she use her husband’s income as well to meet the requirements? Thank you!!

Correct - her friend is your joint sponsor, and her friend's husband is part of her friend's household. Friend fills out I-864, friend's husband fills out I-864a in addendum to friend's I-864.

 

Your wife fills out her own I-864.

 

In total, two I-864 forms, one I-864a. All good.

Thank you so much for your clear explanation!

Have a great day :)
