The Income Requirement for a Co-Sponsor of Immigration Application


I am a U.S. citizen. I recently married a foreign student with F-1 visa as my wife. Since my current income is not high, I need to have my parents as a co-sponsor for my wife's Green Card application. What is the affidavit income requirement for a co-sponsor? 


Generally, the co-sponsor should have an income 125% above the federal poverty lines. Unlike the sponsor, a co-sponsor is not allowed to combine his or her assets to meet the 125% guideline. A co-sponsor should submit with affidavit the following documents to prove their income:

1) The Federal Tax Return for most recent year; 

2) The evidence of current employment; 

3) The evidence that sponsor’s income is sufficient to meet the income requirement.
