I have some questions about green card application.

Owasso, OK |

I live in the U.S. I was on student visa but I've been out of status for about a year now. But I got married to an American citizen almost a year now. I haven't applied for a Green card because my wife doesn't make enough income so we were looking for a Joint sponsor and we were waiting to get all the money ready. Now I found a Joint sponsor but he lives in another state, we agreed that I'm going to send him all the green card forms and he is going to fill out the I-864 and mail everything for me to the USCIS
Will it be Ok to mail him all the forms and he will mail them to the USCIS with his I-864 affidavit of support? what Taxes forms exactly should he and my wife send, the W2?
should they send all 3 recent years taxes?
What office should we apply to, we live in Owasso, OK?
thank you
