Hello,I am married to a US Citizen. I also have a minor son. My husband has signed all the papers for me, but refuses to sign the I-864 for my son. Can somebody else be my son's sponsor? Thanks.

3) He does not want to be financially involved at all (he understands if my son uses any benefits from the govt he is not supposed to, he -husband- is responsible for it).
He is not going to change his mind...
What I want to know is: can somebody else fill out and sign the I-864?
Unfortunately, while someone else can act as a joint sponsor for these purposes, the principal sponsor MUST submit form I-864. There are no exceptions. I hope I have answered your question.
