Hi everyone, without being shot down in flames can anyone advise what amount someone should put down on their application form to act as sponsor.. they do earn above minimum requirements for household and there is a 2nd sponsor also available.. I know they could just put some random figure but would like to know what is the expected min/max amount... Thanks..

As far as I understand there is no min/max; the sponsor needs to declare their income.

They have to declare what their income is - and back this up with documents such as W2's and SSN's/tax return.

They also have to declare what their household numbers are in order to comply with earning enough as per the poverty level guidelines.

Thank you - I was under the impression it asked for an actual amount that the sponsor was willing to provide as support if needed..

The US citizen income must meet the require minimum to fulfill the affidavit of support
currently $19912 for a 2 person household
but you give no details of your case
