I am filling out a US Affidavit of Support for my Canadian husband.. I just got a job, (June) does that show enough support?

Asked over 2 years ago - Boston, MA

I have lived in Canada as a visitor while my waiting on my husbands visa. Since he has a good job I have not worked. Recently he was told he would be transfered to the states with his company when his visa is done. I am going to go ahead and move back to the states for a job. Since I am starting in the middle of the year, do I still need a co-signer for the support? I will meet the minimum requierments by December.

Additional information

I also met the requirements for the 2011 tax year.

    You should line up a co-sponsor just in case you need one.

    Answered . You may be able to use your husband's income alone as your household income, and without needing a co-sponsor if his income is high enough to meet the income guidelines and he is the only intending immigrant you are sponsoring.
