I-864 joint sponsor household size question

Asked 7 months ago - Thomasville, GA

I'm very confused by the household size from my joint sponsor. According to my understanding after reading the guideline, the joint sponsor household size is himself (no wife and dependent) and the immigrant , which is 2. But when I talked to the lawyer, the lawyer said that the household size for the joint sponsor has to include the immigrant's U.S. citizen husband, so the total is 3.
I do not know which one is correct. Does the joint sponsor household size must include the immigrant's U.S. citizen husband?

Additional information

I thought the joint sponsor household size is only included his family (only himself) and I, and my husband is not part of the joint sponsor household size.

    Lawyers agree

    Answered . I am not sure I understand your question correctly. If there is a US citizen husband, who needs co-sponsor because he cannot sponsor his foreign wife, and the co-sponsor is single, it should be 2. However, if there is a married joint sponsor, who sponsors an immigrant, it is 3, or a single co-sponsor, who sponsors primary immigrant and her husband, it is 3.
