Can I be a sponsor for an immigrant from Chile if I’m not their family member?
Hello and thanks for the question. Yes, you can sponsor anyone if you’re a US citizen and you meet the income requirement taking into consideration how much you make and how many dependents you’re obliged to support. Also be aware that you may be held responsible for the person you’re sponsoring. For example: if they receive medical care and cannot pay for it then you may be liable for picking up the tab. I’d say it’s not an issue to take lightly and if you’re interested in doing this then research it first. As I remember there’s a time frame where you’re liable for things like medical costs, so it’s not a bad idea to buy a catastrophic medical insurance policy for the person you’re sponsoring during this period. There may be other liabilities to consider too such as legal ones: if the person you’re sponsoring commits a crime and someone sues them and wins a settlement then you might be on the hook too (not sure about this, but am positive about you being potentially liable for things like medical bills). All this being said, I’ve known several people who were sponsored by people they didn’t know well and it all worked out fine. Good luck!
