I have a new job offer which would provide me a salary of around $145.000 usd per year. My current job income is not enough for the Affidavit of Support so, could I use a letter from the employer as proof of income?

https://www.uscis.gov/i-864

as per this link, this could maybe, maybe be used?

 

You may submit this information for the most recent three tax years, pay stubs from the most recent six months, and/or a letter from your employer if you believe any of these items will help you qualify.

Unfortunately, no. You would still need a joint sponsor because your current income is what matters.

Where are you in the process? Are you submitting the I-864 right now or are you submitting the I-130?

Has the I-130 been approved?

Are you at the NVC stage?

Are you adjusting status? 

Your old posts talk about DCF... you might be okay if you are going through DCF depending on the consulate. 

 

If you have just submitted I-130 to USCIS you have several months before your petition is approved. 

Only once you get to NVC stage does your income count.

It is up to them.

You do not go through NVC

I would prepare documents with a joint sponsor. 

Show them your documents and offer letter. 

If they don't accept them give them the joint sponsor information.

Well... you need to take the documents you have to the interview.

If they do not accept the offer letter as proof of income, you'll need to go back to the US and start the job and then submit evidence of current income and re-established domicile.

Many couples are separated. Even during the DCF process.

Current employment is what counts for the I 864

Unless it's foreign income that won't continue once you relocated.
