Due to the pandemic I have not earned enough over the past year to meet the income requirements for my wife’s visa. My parents, who are retired, are willing to co-sponsor. (They are divorced but both are willing to sponsor so I would choose one).

 

Question 1- Since they are retired they have no income other than Social Security but have a substantial amount in savings and investments. What would be required to show that they have the financial means to be a sponsor? 
 

Question 2- My father has the most wealth but doesn’t live in my city or state. Is he still eligible to be a sponsor?
 

Thanks!

Current income is what matters.

 

Assets can be used, they have to be US resident.

No requirement for the joint sponsor to live in the same state as the petitioner.  Just needs to reside in the US.

What is your "Current Income"?  That's how you qualify.  2020 is the past, not "current" unless you are self employed.
