My husband and I want to apply for green card through marriage soon . I am the immigrant and my husband is an American citizen . I am worried because My father in law put my husband's name on his most recent tax return . My parents in law say that a tax officer they talked to said that they can claim my husband if he didn't earn much money last year . Indeed my husband earned only 1000 dollars last year . But is it alright for my husband to be on his father's tax return when he is married ? What happens if his parents are our joint sponsor ? In any case we need a joint sponsor , but would my husband still need to send a copy of his tax return ? if he does , again , is it okay that his name is on his parent's tax return ?
