  1. If your income falls short of the requirement, you may include your parents and siblings as part of your household size as long as they have the same principle residence and their income, to be used also in support of your husband. They would complete and sign form I-864A.


  2. You need to file form I-864A, and if your siblings are dependants then you count them. Otherwise you dont.


  3. I agree with my colleagues. You can also download the instructions from the USCIS website, and that might answer some of your questions.
