      my brother just got his US citizenship (after 15years in work visas status)

      ive mentioned in another post that my wife is unemployed and with a baby, currently im the sole provider and im filing for Marridge based greencard (my wife is american and so is our daughter)

      could he, my brother, sponsor me in the i-864 financial sponsor documents ?

      If your petitioning sponsor wife does not meet the income requirement, your brother can be the joint sponsor. Keep in mind, your wife is required to file an I-864, regardless of her income.

      Excerpt from USCIS’ website.

      “Joint Sponsor

      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% income requirement alone. You cannot combine your income with that of a joint sponsor to meet the income requirement.”
