  • Joint Sponsor/Vaccinations

    Hi,

    I'm filing the I-130 and I-485, and I've asked my sister-in-law if she would co-sponsor me, since my wife does not make enough income. Could anyone tell me how long the joint sponsor remains a joint sponsor? And, in layman's terms can someone say what the role of the joint sponsor is. I do know what it is, but my sister-in-law is umming and erring as to whether she wants to do it or not, and this might help.

    Secondly, regarding vaccinations for the medical. I'm going to need Hep. B. My step-son just finished having his second booster. Are there 3 shots for adult Hep. B, or just one? If there are to be 3, would I still be able to file my paperwork after having the first shot, since there is a gap between all of the series of shots? Or will I have to wait until I've completed all 3?

    Thanks,

    Gaz.

      Answer to your second question .....

      In most cases (> 97-98%) after second shot immunity against Hep. B is completely formed which will last for 7 good years... but whole course includes 3 shots ... I don't think it should cause u a problem since you will be able to complete it in USA... Good luck ... Pasha

        In response to your first question, your joint sponsor would presumably remain responsible for you 10 years, or until you naturalize. [I'm not a lawyer, this is just what I've read elsewhere.]

          Hi Gaz,

          AliBa is right .... I read the same thing... same thing goes for co-sponsor too .... He/she can be off hook once the person becomes USC / leaves USA permanently or complete certain quarters of work that will almost take 10 yrs .... But tell ur sisiter-in-law that its not that kinda risky .... U might wanna do little search for more info with I-864 / affidavit of support ... Good luck... Pasha

            When you sign the Affidavit of Support, you accept legal responsibility for financially supporting the sponsored immigrant(s) until they become U.S. citizens or can be credited with 40 quarters of work. Any joint sponsors or household members whose income is used to meet the minimum income requirements are also legally responsible for financially supporting the sponsored immigrant. If the immigrant receives any "means-tested public benefits," you are responsible for repaying the cost of those benefits to the agency that provided them. If you do not repay the debt, the agency can sue you in court to get the money owed.

                Who can be a joint sponsor, and when is a joint sponsor allowed?

                If the visa petitioner's household income is not sufficient to meet the requirements of INA section 213A and 8 C.F.R. § 213a, INA section 213A permits a joint sponsor to sign an affidavit of support, in addition to the affidavit of support signed by the visa petitioner. A joint sponsor is someone who is willing to accept legal responsibility for supporting your family member with you. A joint sponsor must meet all the same requirements as you, except the joint sponsor does not need to be related to the immigrant. The joint sponsor (or the joint sponsor and his or her household) must reach the 125 percent income requirement alone. You cannot combine your income with that of a joint sponsor to meet the income requirement.
