I hope you all are doing well.
My mother is petitioner for my brother, and she has zero income. I am sponsoring my brother as Joint sponsor. I filed joint tax return with my wife for 2019. My wife has zero income. I have sufficient income
So, my mom will fill out I-864, I will fill out I-864 and my wife will fill out I-864A. I had few questions regarding these forms. I am hoping that your experience with these forms will help my situation.
For part 1 question 1, should I select 1.d ( only joint sponsor) or 1.e? I believe I should select 1.d since I am the main joint sponsor (even though my wife is filling out I-864A) .
For part 6, question 8,10, I believe should include my wife’s name and show zero income?
My Mom’s I-864
Since she had zero income, I guess I should just write an statement saying why was not required to file any tax returns?
My wife's I-864A
She came to USA in 2019. So we filed joint tax return for 2019 even though her income was zero. I believe information that goes in for 2019 tax returns will be identical for me and her forms? For 2018 and 2017, I plan to write N/A in here forms as she wasn't here in USA in those years.
