We are filing a 1 - visa and we need a co sponsor for the Affidavit of Support . My fiance his parents want to be the co - sponsor . Is that allowed since they are relatives ?
Yes. A join sponsor can be any U.S. citizen, U.S. national, or lawful permanent resident who is at least 18 years old, domiciled in the U.S., or its territories or possessions, and willing to be held jointly liable with the petitioner for the support of the intending immigrant. A joint sponsor does not have to be related to the petitioning sponsor or the intending immigrant. There may be no more than 2 joint sponsors. You should consult and retain an immigration lawyer rather than go this alone.
