If your combined income meets the threshold requirement you do not need to count assets. However, make sure you have evidence of the income from all sources and that your daughter is in fact part of your household as listed earlier in the form.

This is not to be regarded as legal advice which can only be properly offered after a careful assessment of your case. Please consult with an experienced immigration attorney.


Suggest you include the assets. You are very close to the threshold.

If you and your daughter live together you can combine your incomes (she would be a household member). If you do not live together, and she is applying as a joint sponsor she will need to calculate her household size and income separately to see if she can sponsor your husband. Either way, documenting the income sources well is key and it may be a good idea to include assets to be on the safe side.


If all household income combined does not reach the threshold, then yes, you need to look at your assets. Once you get everything together, I recommend you have your packet reviewed by an immigration attorney. Many of us provide a free consultation. Good luck!
