I am about to get married and my boyfriend just earns enough to be my sponsor ($19,000 last year only). He will hopefully go to college in the fall or early next year. Will this be a problem if he is my sponsor?
If your husband is a U.S. Citizen, he would have to file a Form I-864, Affidavit of Support along with the I-130 petition on your behalf. If your husband goes back to school, or is unemployed and cannot meet the income requirements, he would have to get a Joint Sponsor (who is at least 18 years old and is a U.S. citizen or “green card” holder) who agrees to submit an affidavit of support to sponsor you.
