Changing sponsors AFTER immigrating to the US?

Rancho Cordova, CA |

I'm married to a US citizen. My husband last year didn't make enough money to qualify as a sponsor so he had to get a joint-sponsor whose i864 was accepted and now I'm in the US as a legal permanent resident. My sponsor doesn't feel comfortable about being a sponsor (change of mind) anymore and is wondering if my husband, who is NOW making enough money can "transfer" the sponsorship to him so that my joint-sponsor can have the peace of mind of not being responsible for any one. Is there a way to do this? Thanks!
