What is the poverty line in Alabama for 1 person?
Alabama is the fifth poorest state in the U.S., and 16.8% of Alabamians live below the federal poverty threshold – a noticeably larger percentage than the national average of 13.1%. The federal poverty thresholds range from $12,784 for one person to $25,701 for a family of four.
Can I sponsor my spouse if I have debt?
Yes. Consumer proposals do not interfere with immigration applications, so you could go through the debt recovery process and apply to sponsor your spouse at the same time. You must be financially capable of completing the terms of the proposal. Your proposal must be accepted by the majority of the creditors involved.
