Use Latest Poverty Guidelines When Filling Out Affidavit of Support

The U.S. government has published its 2012 Poverty Guidelines. That means anyone sponsoring an immigrant and filling out a Form I-864 on the immigrant's behalf must follow these guidelines when determining whether his or her household income is high enough to be a sponsor. To view and download the 2010 Poverty Guidelines, go to the USCIS website at http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/I-864P.pdf.
