Ozone Park, NY |

I am sponsoring my kids but I am retired. I do have two joint sponsors. Do I have to file an affidavit of support because I have no income and if I do how many affidavit of support forms do I have to file and also the joint sponsors.

  1. There is a provision that exempts you from filing taxes after a certain age but you can show your retirement income.
    As the sponsor you have to complete an affidavit of support and then have the co-sponsors complete theirs to ensure you meet the poverty guideline.
    You can complete one affidavit of support for everyone, there should be the main immigrant and other people immgratiing with her that you are also sponsoring.
