    Answered . You may submit copies of pay stubs, recent bank statements, recent tax returns, proof of employment, letter from your bank, among other things. If you are concerned about whether you have sufficient evidence, you can hire an immigration attorney in the U.S. to review what you have and make suggestions. Most of this can be done electronically. All the best.
