    Answered . I do not see how one thing has any impact on the other. As you already know, when its time to submit the affidavit of support, your husband will need a joint sponsor as your income is a little low.

    P.S. I hope you are doing better and recovering after the storm. Best of luck to you and your family.

    Answered . No reason why it should influence the green card process, as long as you will provide sponsorship to your husband.
