    Answered . I agree with my colleagues. It will not affect obtaining the children's green cards but you will need to find a co-sponsor to sign the affidavit of support. The co-sponsor can be a U.S. Citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident and must reside in the United States. Please consult an immigration attorney to determine the co-sponsor's annual income to be able to sponsor your husband's children.
