Hello, during the immigration process based on i-130, we were asked to submit affidavit of support, can a potential employer be the joint sponsor in addition to my wife (who's currently unemployed)? Which form do we need to use? Thanks
In a family-based adjustment of status case, generally any U.S. citizen or Permanent Resident living in the U.S. who has sufficient income and is willing to assume the legal obligations may serve as a joint sponsor and supply a signed Affidavit of Support (with appropriate supporting documents). A U.S. citizen who employs the applicant or the applicant's spouse certainly could qualify.

Any US citizen or permanent resident who resides in the U.S. and whose income is sufficient, can sign.
