As a petitioner, even if you don't have income, you still have to fill out the I-864. You indicate there that you will have a co-sponsor. If your income is zero, then you have to put zero. If your brother-in-law has enough income to meet the poverty guidelines for the beneficiary's adjustment of status application, then the fact that you don't have income should not be an issue.
JP Sarmiento, Esq.
I agree with my colleagues. In addition, without income, you probably have not filed taxes in the last three years. Under the instructions for the I-864, you should submit a short explanation why you have not filed. If it is because your income was "0" then the letter should say so. Go through the instructions before you submit the I-864.
