Hello my husband is filing for the green card and because I am not working at this time and he'll be losing his monthly income once he graduates, we need a sponsor. He has been here 6 years on an F1 Visa and will be graduting with his Masters in March. I am not employed at this time but plan on finding a job as soon as possible. I'm looking into having my brother being a sponsor. Would he be a joint sponsor or a co-sponsor? I'm assuming joint sponsor. Because I cannot be a sponsor to my husband is it absolutely necessary to have a joint sponsor before he can be approved for the green card, do we need a sponsor or will USCIS consider our situation and give us time to find work while the applications are being processed. We do have a newborn daughter if that makes a difference.
1. You need a joint sponsor. Without a joint sponsor your husband's green card application will not be approved.
2. I am not sure if your brother qualifies. Be sure to check the federal poverty guideline to see if your brother's income is sufficient given his household size.
