Long story short, two joint sponsors (one after the other) who at first were both super excited they can help, decited that it was too risky for them to go through with it, and while my fiancee is quite dissapointed at that fact, we respect their decidions and will proceed alone, as much as we can.
So our situation currently stands like this:
Going by fiances last years income, he was at 123% of the povery guideline, and while certanly not ideal, technically it should be enough for the interview (and just short of the 125% needed for AOS)
A litter over a month before the interview date, he started working a new job with a bit better pay and way more hours, and is on track to make over 170% of the poverty guildeline this year with it.
Three months before the interview he started working as a freelance writer, and has a contract now that pays him a certain ammount every month (the contract is good for 6 months and should be extended longer once it expires), if we add the 6 month contract to this years projected earnings, he will be over 200% of the povery guideline.
While I am aware that they are looking for the USC income, my plan is to bring a bank statement of my own to show savings (of over 10k$) and a letter showing I bought a studio apartment last year that I am now renting out (and plan on selling before we file AOS, to boost our savings), I know this may mean nothing, but I'm kinda just grasping at straws at this point.
Our plan is to go to the interview together and hope for the best, if we get approved, we want to wait at least two months before filing for AOS, to show that the jobs are more permanent even through they are recent.
My biggest concern is his last years income, we want to do everything and anything we can to help with the AOS process (if we even get there) by showing steady employment and a nice chunk of savings.
I apologize for going so much into detail, but after learning today that we are out of a second joint sponsor, my brain is working overtime trying to figure out how to best approach the situation, and you guys on VJ have been invaluable with your wizdom so far in the process.
Any and all imput is more than welcome.
