Yes he has been in Mexico for two months. My father is disemployed so I don't think he can sponsor me although he is my only option. He gets food stamps . When I read the requirements for the income it said that he can't have government support. Is that correct?

Do you have any other friends or family who would be willing to be a joint sponsor? They do not have to be related to you or him, but they do need to be a U.S. citizen or green card holder. Receiving government support won't disqualify a person from being a sponsor, but they can't include that money in their income to get over the level. Finding a joint sponsor can be one of the more difficult parts of this process, but you won't be able to complete the process without one.
