If you are the petitioner, then you would be the primary financial sponsor, pursuant to the Affidavit of Support, even if you divorce him. And, any co-sponsor would be the secondary responsible party.

An Affidavit of Support sponsor or co-sponsor is only released of their obligation if the immigrant either dies, becomes a U.S. citizen, or pays taxes for 40 qtrs (10 yrs).

You can find more information about this at & search for "I-864" or related terms.
