Yes. If you are filing to sponsor someone you will need to fill out an Affidavit of Support stating you can support this person in the US without being on public assistance. You have to meet 125% of the poverty line, as stated on the forms you can download at If you filed bankruptcy you are not an eligible sponsor and you will need a co-sponsor (mother, father, someone who makes 12% of the poverty line).
