Q: My father in law filled out papers to bring his daughter to the US and is using his son’s ( my husband’s) income to meet
The requirements to sponsor her So my husband filled out an I-864A. Now, me and my husband filled our taxes together so does that mean I also have to fill out a I-864A because my income is also on the income tax return he is providing?
A: You fill out the I-864A only if you intend to be joint sponsor/household member. Your husband will need to provide proof of HIS income stated on the joint tax return. Your share of the income on the return can not be considered for meeting the financial requirement unless you complete an I-864A.
