Joint Sponsor

When sponsor can not meet the income requirement for affidavit of support by himself/herself, a joint sponsor can be used to meet the requirement. A joint sponsor is someone who’s willing to  share the legal responsibility for financially supporting the intending immigrant with sponsor. Same with the requirement for sponsor, a  joint sponsor has to meet the certertain requirement. A joint sponsor must:

  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Be a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident (depending on the visa type, permanent residents may be excluded)
  • Have a domicile in the U.S.
  • Meet the minimum income requirement by himself/herself (joint sponsor cannot combine his or her income with sponsor to meet the income requirement)

* Unlike sponsor, joint sponsor does NOT have to be related to the intending immigrant.
