Can someone be him/her own co-sponsor in an immigration petition I-864 ?

Asked over 3 years ago - Miami, FL

I'm a student and my husband-to-be is a student as well. Is it possible that I'll be my own co-sponsor for I-864 ? If yes, what assets should be considered as sufficient for such a case ?


Additional information

I'm a foreigner and the fiance is a US citizen.
Our combined income is less than $10000 a year.
