My wife and I filled out all the necessary forms to adjust her status as of permanent resident. However, I am currently unemployed and I wonder if it still be helpful that I complete the form I-864...I lose my job few months ago and I am still looking for a new one while she goes to school.
Now, one of my relative volunteered to be our co-sponsor (he meets all the requirements and have sufficient income). Do I still have to sign the I-864 form even if my relative signs it?

I have recategorized this matter as an immigration question. You should get more successful help in that area.

With all due respect to the prior poster, as the petitioner, you are required to file a Form I-864 even if you have a joint sponsor unless your spouse has earned or can be credited with 40 quarters of work in the United States. It is not optional. See page 1 of the instructions for the form here:
