i want to sponsor my parents. i take food stamps. is this will affect the sponsoring my parents?
1 Answer from Attorneys
Yes, it might affect your sponsoring your parents. As a sponsor, you are required to execute the Affidavit of support and prove that your income is above federal poverty guidelines. Usually, when one receives food stamps, their income is below poverty guidelines. You might need a joint sponsor.
