Can my wife sponsor me if she has a bad credit and legal history? 4 Answers as of June 13, 2011My wife has 2 DWI convictions, very bad credit that she's thinking of filing for bankruptcy. She also hasn't paid her taxes for the last couple of years. Can she sponsor me to get a green card? If not, her sister and her husband have a pretty good financial situation, as he works as a professor in a university, can he sponsor me instead?! Thank you

Yes, but she will likely not meet the USCIS income requirement to petition for you. The income requirement is 125% of the HHS poverty guidelines for your family size. She may need to get a joint sponsor to sign a separate I-864 affidavit of support. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney.
