We have a willing joint sponsor who is also sponsoring his spouse who is out of the country. They asked the opinion of an attorney (not retained) who said that it might jeopardize both our applications and also that because in California, the sponsor is required to make more than is noted on the I-864p guidelines. We just wanted to get a second opinion on that. Based on the current I-864p guidelines, the joint sponsor makes the cut but we did not know that being in California raises the bar a little higher. Thank you.
