IR-1 Recent change of salary - Do I still need joint sponsor?

Posted (edited)

My wife has been in college for the last three years and worked very little. Her income had not qualified her to be my primary financial sponsor- so we had asked family to do it. Our 1-130 application has been approved- but since its approval in the last 3 months, my wife graduated and secured employment that would financially enable her to sponsor me on her own. She has been employed at her new position since the beginning of June. She has a verification letter from her employer but her tax transcripts from last year and her reported income from the last three show her low student income. Is her verification letter of new salary and recent employment  going to be enough to let her file the I-864 on her own? Or should we continue with our original plan in having a joint sponsor?

Yes, but also include a recent pay stub showing a full pay period.  Decisions about the public charge issue are made by Consular Officers as judgment calls, based on totality of circumstances.  It would be nice not to obligate others unless really necessary, but you'll want to be ready with a joint sponsor in case the Consular Officer requests/requires it.
