The U.S. citizen sponsor should earn 125% of HHS poverty guidelines for his/her household size. USCIS provides these figures on its website (www.uscis.gov) on form I-864P. Household members' earnings may also be considered in meeting the guidelines.

The statement above is general in nature and does not constitute legal advice, as not all the facts are known. You should retain an attorney to review all the facts specific to your case in order to receive advise specific to your case. The statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
Answers on Avvo can only be general ones, as specific answers would require knowledge of all the facts. As such, they may or may not apply to the question.
That is a great question. The first thing I would advise is to consult with an experienced immigration attorney to clarify this response and to possibly assist you with the process. Now, the answer to your question depends on the number of dependents the petitioner is claiming on his tax return. If he claiming no dependents he would need to qualify as someone who has a household size of four (himself, plus both parents and yourself). Also, as his spouse he can use your income qualify under the poverty guidelines. Please call and I can explain in detail.
