Hi all, this is probably a ridiculous question but I just wan't to be sure before I finalise my AOS paperwork: are joint sponsors still allowed when applying for a green card on a K1 visa? Or is this replaced with my own/my households funds as listed on the i-944? My spouse and I were relying on her brother as a co-sponsor and now we are a little worried! Thanks for any help!

Yes. You can use a joint Sponsor.

 

Make sure your spouse fills out the 864 and send tax information. The joint sponsor will also file a 864 and send tax information.

Out of curiosity, if my wife (petitioner) has no income, but her brother (joint sponsor) qualifies on his own, would we be best off making him fill out his own i-864 or having him fill out an i-864a instead? (we all live in the same house, but my wife is not claimed by her brother on his tax returns)

He can't file a 864a. He's not part of her household. Living in the same household is different than same household.

He could be added to her I864 as Person 1 contributing to the total household income and complete an I864a. BUT I think in the case of her earning zero income, it would be better to each do a separate I-864.
 

The combining incomes of people living in the same house Is more for when neither make enough, but both have something to contribute.

(Example: wife 15k + brother 15k give total of $30k to qualify). If brother makes enough on his own, just make him the joint sponsor with his own I864.
