Asked in Immigration Law for Virginia

Q: I recently applied for N-400 naturalization I might need to be added as a joint sponsor for PR, does that affect N-400 ?

I am permanent resident who just applied for N-400, and my mom wants to add me as a joint sponsor to get my father papers, does that affect my N-400 application I have not added any dependents in the application or that I am sponsoring anyone, is that going to affect my naturalization process in any way? Please advice

A: As long as you provide truthful and accurate information on the affidavit of support, being a joint sponsor for your father should not impact your naturalization application. You can read more about the requirements and responsibilities of being a joint sponsor here:
