Hi.. My husband needs a sponsor... And we can't find one. How can we get someone to sponsor him? Is there any kind of organization of sponsorship?

You can secure a co-sponsor by continuing to be proactive and keeping on looking and knocking even on doors of strangers. There is no such "organization" of "co-sponsors".

Kindly be advised that the answer above is only general in nature cannot be construed as legal advice, given that not enough facts are known. It is your responsibility to retain a lawyer to analyze the facts specific to your particular situation in order to give you specific advice. Specific answers will require cognizance of all pertinent facts about your case. Any answers offered on Avvo are of a general nature only, and are not meant to create an attorney-client relationship.

Whatever the ways might there be for that, the sponsor will not materialize from posting on AVVO. That is for sure.

No. You should talk with your friends and relatives.

Mr. Shusterman's (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.

There are a few ways to meet the requirements of the Affidavit of Financial Support. I recommend scheduling a consultation with an immigration attorney to discuss whether you may use assets and household members' income, if a co-sponsor is not available.
