Look at the instructions and carefully figure out your household size. Then compare that number to the income requirements. If your income is not sufficient, you may be able to use assets or get a co-sponsor. These issues can be complicated, make sure to read the instructions well or seek assistance from an attorney.
If your household consists only of you and your wife, you will have no problems with $22,000. If you you have additional members in your household, you will need a joint sponsor. Check out the table in this form:
