I am the petitioner filing for my parents. Me and my husband filed tax together so do we need to submit two different I-864 or he needs to file I864a and I need to file I-864? And what is the correct option for me and my husband to select as a joint sponsors from part 1?
Avvo has tagged your question as Medicaid and Medicare. I have relabeled it as an immigration issue so that attorneys experienced in that area can provide you with an appropriate response.
No. Only one Form I-864 needs to be submitted.
You, the petitioner/sponsor for your parents need to submit your I-864 and your husband, and your spouse/household member needs to execute the Supplement A to the I-864, namely the "Contract between Sponsor and Household Member".

Attorney Robert Brown's (former INS Director, 1972-99) reply to your question is general in nature, and does not constitute legal advice as all facts are known to him. For specific advice or representation you should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law. Mr. Brown's reply on AVVO does not create an attorney/client relationship not constitute legal advice.
