Hi VJ!

My brother (a USC) is filing for my mom, I-130 and I-485 concurrently. He does not make enough money to sponsor her on his own so I am going to file as her joint sponsor.

I AOSd this year so I did not have a lot of income last year, but I got a really good job and I now make well over the poverty levels. I have been working since October, 2011, will my pay stubs from this period be enough? My husband and I made enough together last year, would it be better for both of us to sign on as joint sponsors?

Thank you for your answers! :)

Btw, reading over AFFIDAVITS OF SUPPORT ON BEHALF OF IMMIGRANTS it is this part that concerns me most "(2) If the sponsor relies on the income of any other individual, the sponsor must also attach that individual's Federal income tax returns for each of the 3 most recent tax years."
