So I'm about to try and ask for my husband so he can be legal here, we've been married for 9 yrs no criminal record and i just received a call today that my sister's husband needs someone to be a sponsor so he won't be deported.. Now i wanna know if i help him, will it affect my husbands case in any way?
This depends on whether your income and assets are large enough to sponsor two persons.
Mr. Shusterman's (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
Helping financially responsible for a US immigration sponsorship will not affect another US immigration sponsorship for a spouse if one makes sufficient income for both sponsorships.
Is my answer "BEST ANSWER" and/or "HELPFUL"? If so, please acknowledge and mark it so. Mr. Smith has 25 years of successful U.S. immigration law experience with cases just like yours. Still, his response is general in nature, as all the facts are unknown to him, and cannot be construed as legal advice. Please retain immigration counsel to analyze your particular situation in order to receive specific advice. Specific answers requires knowledge of all the pertinent facts of your case. Any answers offered by Mr. Smith on Avvo are of a general nature only, and does not create an attorney-client relationship.
You misr ensure your income will be enough to sponsor your inlaw and your husband.

You will need to disclose previous sponsorships for any subsequent petitions, so you should meet the required financial support guidelines.
As long as you have sufficient income to sponsor both then no worries. If not, your husband's case should be your priority.
Thank you for your question.
You will need to disclose your prior application of support, then consider whether your income is sufficient to support the second application as it must be taken in consideration with the first filing. If your income is sufficient to support both individuals, then it should not be an issue and your husband's application should not be impacted.
