Sponsor eligibility

Hope everyone is doing okay ! 

My question today is the following:

My husband returned to the US in March 2020 in order to do my papers. He’s now been working since April (1. Job April-June and now since June in another job) and he makes enough monthly to be my sponsor (annually would be more than $ 21,000). So my question is can he be my sole sponsor although he hasn’t worked in the companies for that long yet? We really don’t want to involve a joint sponsor... 

Thank you all!

High chance a joint sponsor will be needed. Get one prepared.
