You may need a co-sponsor.

You will most likely need to find a co-sponsor for the affidavit of support requirement.

J Charles Ferrari Eng & Nishimura 213.622.2255 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.


You may begin by filing an I-130 Petition. If USCIS approves it, then your wife files for an immigrant visa. During this stage, you would need to file an I-864 affidavit of support. If you are required to file federal income taxes, then you must. If you are not required to file federal income taxes, then you do not need to. If your income does not meet guidelines for the I-864, then you need to find a joint sponsor. I strongly suggest that you meet with an immigration attorney to have the best chance of success with this entire process.

I am sorry to hear about your situation.

You should contact an attorney to discuss your questions as additional information would be helpful. Why didn't you file? Did you not make enough money or did you just not file?

I wish you the best of luck.
