A: Hello Sir, Your wife will still need to sponsor you since she would be your petitioner in the I-130 form, but you can be included as the household member ("intended immigrant") in the I-864. This means that your income of $35,000 can be used to overcome the 2016 federal poverty guideline of $30,375 for a household of 4 (Refer to I-864P). Be sure to thoroughly prove your income.

If you have any questions or concerns, you should speak with a local immigration attorney. A local attorney can assist with your entire filing or with just the I-864. Shop around for pricing or you can try by yourself and seek assistance later if a NOID or RFE result. Best of luck.
