Good morning,

 

I am in the process of filing to bring my stepson to live in the US with us. Quick overview of my situation: I was living abroad with my husband for several years. We decided to move this side.  Because I was not employed while living overseas my mom acted as a co-Sponsor for my husband. We arrived in the US just before COVID so we were not working until June of 2020. Our tax return obviously only reflects 6 months of employment, which wouldn’t appear to be enough for sponsorship. My husband has received a promotion since and is now salaried. 

 

my question is this, is a letter of employment with his salary amount enough evidence that we can indeed support our son or should we ask my mom to co-Sponsor again? If she does! Will we need to pay filing fees twice or would both affidavits be covered with one fee?

If you husband's current income (estimated annual income for 2021 or 12 months) is significantly higher than the threshold, no need for a joint sponsor. Copies of pay stubs, employment letter stating salary are good enough. If it's just marginally higher, adding the joint sponsor is a good idea. You pay i864 fee only once regardless.
