I want to include my mom as cosponsor. in i864. But, she is taking SNAP ( she has one dependent) and Last year her income was $14,000 but this year it would be around 31,000 with mine $21,000. Should we both include our income? This petition is for my wife no children.
SNAP is a means based public benefit. No doubt there are arguments she would qualify to be a co-sponsor. But I would be concerned that if she cannot support herself and she relies on the government for her needs, she may not be able to support someone else.
