Does the USCIS go by 2015 or current income?

I need some advice on how this sponsoring works before I have sleepless nights! Lol

My husband started working at his current job July 2015 and has currently a boss of the department permanent position making $13 an hour and still gets some dollar raises next year. We send in his W2's from 2015 and 2014 and his last six months of pay stubs as proof of income/affidavit of support for AOS and his boss confirming in a letter what I just said. Since his last dollar raise and the hours he make at work, he'll earn $26,400 a year/$2200 a month. However, last year he just earned $19,000 on a year base.

Are they going to adjudicate on his current income or can we expect the USCIS sending a RFE for joint sponser because he didn't hit the 125% last year-2015?

And please do not guess if you don't know. I'd like some answers that actually help or people who know how it works. Thanks for the help!

To edit from here I guess. I calculated everything and currently he makes $13 -> $27,040 annual salary. He works 12 hours a day approx. so he has a good income and enough to provide our household of 2 and meets the 125% with his current job. Are we ok/safe?

They'll go by current income if it is well documented (letter of employment stating salary and that the position is permanent) + a good set of paystubs to support that claim (some suggest 6 months worth of stubs).


If it isn't difficult, it isn't worth it.

Thanks for the reply!

Yes, that's what we did. Six month worth of pay stubs proving his current income and his boss' letter also confirming his $13 an hour and his permanent position.

If he only stated the hourly pay, did he also state how many hours/week your husband works?
