Q: How much would my house hold of 3 need to make annually to get our child's Godmother sponsored as a live in nanny?

I am born US Citizen who sponsored my husband from Serbia as a permanent green card holder, he is applicable for citizenship but hasn't taken the test, we currently live in FL.

We want to know the requirements that need to be met in order to sponsor our child's Godmother who resides in Serbia & her 5 year old son (since she is a single mother) to be a live in nanny. Seeing that due to our religion no one out side the family can watch our child I would like to return to work but can't ...

How much would our family have to make annually to sponsor here n her son?

Since min wage is 8.46 in FL IS that the amount she would be paid an hour?

What is the process including fees & approx wait times ?

If its like I'm her employer does she get taxes back at the end of year or can I claim her & her son?

How does any of this work?
