I am on H - B and recently married to a US Citizen . I will be filing I - 485 with I - 130 and I - 864 . My Wife's ( US citizen ) income is below the required number ( 125% of poverty ) . Her parents are wiling to co sponsor , but i am thinking of including my income with her I - 864 and not using a co sponsor . Is this a safe option ? We currently live together in a separate apartment with total household size of 2 ( me and my wife ) . I can get a letter form my employer stating my period of work and my salary . Will this be sufficient proof ?
As long as you are lawfully present and in status on your H1B, your income can be included. A letter from your employer will be required as part of the documentatiion submitted with the I-864A you will need to complete.
It might be worth your time and trouble to consult with an experienced immmigration attorney for a full review of your circumstances.
