Co-Sponsorship and joint tax returns

My father and my step mother have both agree'd to be co-sponsors, but recently she has left the house on bad terms and I'm currently waiting on my NOA2. I'm waiting until after the new tax season to send in my request for tax information, my question is:

If they filed jointly on their past tax's then do I need both of them to sign the I-130? And both give W-2's + Tax return info? Or can we simply state somewhere that he is going to be the sole co-sponsor and then write down his half of what he made on the I-130? My SO is urging me to get her signature too, but this lady is a little flaky and I'd rather her not be a part of the process at all :help:

Your father can be the sole co-sponsor but along with the tax transcripts you will need to have copies of his W-2s so that they can see how much of the income he is responsible for. For example on the tax transcripts is your fathers and stepmothers income combined, so the W-2 will distinguish how much of that is your fathers. I am pretty sure you need the I-864 and yourself (the sponsor) and your father (the cosponsor) will need to fill one out.

For K-1 it is an I-134. The I-130 is an immigration petition for an immediate relative.

And the I-864 will have to be filed at AOS.
