Help me bring my parents to US

We're trying to bring my parents here to US. My brother is USC but he doesn't make enough money to provide/show affidavit of support. I am a PR and I know I can chime in for support. My question is do we file:

1.) I-130 (2 for parents, both filed by my brother)

2.) I-864 (2 forms, one from me and one from my brother)

3.) G-325A (2 forms, one from me and one from my brother)

Does it look alright? Do we send all that jazz in one package? Also, how do I find out the poverty line for state of AR? Last time I heard, it was around $19,500. Also, on the affidavit of support form, it says you have to support them 125% of poverty line. My question is that is it 125% for both my parents or individual? My wife can also chime in and then we can file total of 3 I-864 and G-325A if needed.

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you

As a PR, you are not eligible to petition your parents. Your brother can, but he will need to be capable of sponsoring. Read the instructions on the I-864 for more detail on the Federal Poverty guideline and what 125% constitutes. The actual figure required relates to the petitioner's household and the number of aliens on the petition. Also note the information relating to "joint sponsors".

Poverty line for 3 people household is $17,170 and 125% is $21,462. Your brother is filing for 2 people since you cant under PR, and has to make a gross income of at least $21,462 to support both your parents and himself. He can get a co-sponsor but it would have to be someone who is USC.

Hmm. Not acurate. There is a distinction between being domiciled in the USA and being a US citizen.

rlpolo78, a sponsor...

must be at least 18 years old and either an American citizen or a lawful permanent resident (LPR). The sponsor must also have a domicile (residence) in the United States.
