Answer
Hi,

There is no maximum number of times that a person can sign an affidavit of support. However, the "household size" of the sponsor will increase with each filing of an affidavit of support, increasing the income requirements. The sponsor must meet 125% of the poverty guidelines for household size as per http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/I-864P.pdf
