My spouse is planning to petition his parents to join him here in CA as immigrants. Now, I understand he needs to sign an affidavit of support for both his parents. Since he make decent income, he can just do the affidavit himself. Now, if it turns out that both his parents later on will accumulate unavoidable medical expenses(knock on the woods) later on since they are old already, and accumulate huge hospital bills, can they run after me and perhaps issue a wage garnishment if needed being the spouse of the petitioner in CA? What is the law in CA regarding this affidavit of support? I'm worried since I know in CA it is a community property so if a spouse has debt, they can ran after the other of what he owe but not sure about immigrant petition. Please help clarify CA atty!
