In order for a spouse to qualify for a marriage-based green card, the sponsoring spouse must accept financial responsibility. For more information about the sponsoring spouse’s financial obligation, check out our guide to the Affidavit of Support (Form I-864).

Gail Law can prepare and file your Affidavit of Support for consular visa processing and adjustment of status. We take the guesswork out of the process and ensure the petitioner and joint sponsors meet the financial requirements under the laws.
