I know I've seen this asked before, but I can't find it so I'm going to ask again...please excuse the repeat. :)

I am the USC and we currently have an AOS/EAD/AP application out for my husband. Our plan was that in a year or so I would be a stay-at-home wife/mom and he would work. Some work things have come up and there's a possibility that I won't be working after the end of January (the department I work for is being cut in half). Hopefully my husband will have his EAD around then or soon afterwords. We have enough savings to cover us if neither are working for a couple of months, but that poses a problem with the financial sponsorship. So my question is twofold...

1. Will we have to prove income at the interview? I already turned in the sponsorship with our packet and my income was well above the limits. If that is the only time we have to prove income then I don't have to worry.

2. If I do end up laid off, do I need to submit a new affidavit with a co-sponsor? Or, if we decide to just go with me staying at home in January/February and he has a job, does his income count towards the household income so I can still be the sponsor?

So I won't have to prove income again? That's a relief! Yay! :) I'll stop worrying so much about it. That was my biggest concern about the possible unemployment. Do you know if there are any repercussions to me filing for unemployment?

Unemployment is NOT a means tested benefit, it is paid out of an insurance program that your employer paid into, and you would be collecting it not your spouse.

IO at our interview carefully added up my income from the previous year income. Didn't ask about current income.

IO at our interview took, checked, and kept current pay stubs. (August 2008)

They are on the list of things to bring to the interview on the interview letter.

In that case...does anyone know if his income can count towards household income?

This might not answer your question but I thought it might help a little.

During our interview, we were NOT asked to show pay stubs, although we had them, I changed my job during the AOS process, when I mentioned that to IO, he sad it was not important. However he looked at and kept letter from my employer, stating position, dates of employment and current pay rate.

Good luck
