Good evening, I am an Immigration Law attorney and former Prosecutor for the State Attorney's Office, and I'll be answering your questions today.

ok

In this case, your nephew will need to send a brief letter to USCIS explaining that he did not file taxes, and does not intend to file taxes for those years, due to the minimum amount of income he earned.

He will however need to find a joint sponsor to submit an I-864 on his mother's behalf, since he does not appear to meet the income requirements for approval of the visa petition.

You can find the I-864 form at the following link:

https://www.uscis.gov/i-864

The sponsor does not need to be a relative, it can be anyone willing to be a financial sponsor for his mom, and the joint sponsor also does not need to reside in the same household as the applicant.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!
