How much a USC should be making in order to sponsor parents for Green Card?
If in the household the other spouse is working too.....
1. Can both of us co mingle our assets for sponsoring?
That is a great question. The first thing I would advise is to consult with an experienced immigration attorney to clarify this response and to possibly assist you with the process. Now, the answer to your question depends on the number of dependents the petitioner is claiming on his tax return. If he claiming no dependents he would need to qualify as someone who has a household size of four (himself, plus both parents and yourself). Also, as his spouse he can use your income qualify under the poverty guidelines. Please call and I can explain in detail.
Both of your assets will count and other spouse will need to sign an I-864A. For a family of four you will need at least $29,000 per year.
