What is a second joint sponsor?
This second sponsor is typically needed when the petitioning sponsor and their household do not have sufficient income and assets to satisfy the minimum financial requirement for a green card.
Who Can Be a Joint Sponsor?
A petitioning sponsor must be a family member, but a joint sponsor doesn’t need to be related. He or she must:
Be a U.S. citizen, lawful permanent resident, or U.S. national who is at least 18 years of age;
Have income of at least 125% of the poverty level; and
Be domiciled in the United States, or its territories or possessions.
