Topic moved from AOS from a family visa to AOS from a Work, Student or Tourist Visa forum as OP is adjusting from a work visa

“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”

Read this straight from USCIS website: "If you included the income of the intending immigrant who is not your spouse, (he or she would be counted on line 21a), evidence that his or her income will continue from the current source after obtaining lawful permanent resident status must be provided and the intending immigrant must provide evidence that he/she is living in your residence. He or she does not need to complete Form I-864A, Contract Between Sponsor and Household Member, unless he or she has an accompanying spouse or children." http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-864instr.pdf

We did the same thing: we used my income to meet the poverty line. As evidence that my income will continue from the same source after I get the LPR status, I asked my current employee to write a letter stating that they will continue to employ me after my status changes, my annual income,and some of my job responsiblities. I also included the last 6 paystubs. I hope we will be fine. As for taxes, I included the last three years taxes. They say they want the last year ones, but if you think it will help your case, you can include all three years.

Also, make sure you download and complete the latest versions of USCIS forms and that you read the left and right side bars on each form page on USCIS website.

If you file I-765 and I-131 with I-485, there is no charge for them.

Good luck!
