Orela is an unknown quantity at this point

My husband has a disability and is on a fixed income. At this time, I'm his dependent and he is not eligible for affidavit of support I-864 (less $10,000/year - below poverty income guideline). We're living in a motorhome (no house), don't have any investments or assets besides our monthly fixed income. There are no relatives, no friends, no churches, no charities that can help (we've already tried and asked a lot).

1. Our lawyer will not submit my AOS I-485 package until I'll find an affidavit of support I-864 (financial sponsor). Is there a way that I can get at least my work authorization (without I-864), so that I can go work and earn money for us?

2. By other resources, I've got told to submit the I-485 package without Affidavit of support I-864 anyways and to worry about the I-864 later for the AOS interview. But, on the other hand I've got told that with submitting it without I-864, I might get denied and still not receive my work authorization. And I might run the risk to get the I-485 denied and will be deported.

Our lawyer told us there is nothing we can do, but having an affidavit of support first in order to get the EAD. We just cannot find anybody to be my affidavit of support. What shall I do in order to get the work authorization? Can anybody help me? Does anybody know of a certain organization, charity, church or anything similar somewhere in the US that is known to help in cases like ours (signing I-864 affidavit of support). Please let us know soon.

We are in a pickel. Financially, we cannot afford to wait until I find an affidavit of support in order to get my work authorization and to be able to work (that might take months to find somebody to be my affidavit of support).

I would greatly appreciate any advice. Thanks, Orela.
