We are preparing the marriage based green card currently, and we'd like to ask about the current income part 6 in form I-864. My husband has two jobs. He got 45,000 dollors from one job and we have evidences for this using pay-sub and letter from employeer. The other his job is part-time job and he earned mostly 10,000 per year but we don't have any evidence for this. What should I have to write for current income? Thanks.
Good evening. If $45,000 is enough to meet the minimum support level, then you can go with what you can prove. If you don't have any way to prove the other $10,000 but include it in your calculations, you will either get a request for evidence or a denial.
I suggest you sit down with an immigration attorney to get advice on how to prove the $10,000 from the second job.
You need most recent income tax return and a letter form the employer.

I agree. You appear to have sufficient income to comply with the requirements outlined on I864P. You do not need to present pay-stabs. You need to present the most recent tax filing and updated letter for both employers confirming that the employment is ongoing.
I'm confused ... why doesn't he have proof of his $10,000 of income?
With that said, he should be fine.
Since we're so close to February 1, which is the earliest he can file his 2014 tax return .. do that immediately .. BEFORE filing all the papers.

Take a look at the poverty guideline on www. uscis.gov and see if your earned income of $45k is sufficient for the number of people living in your household. If so go ahead with that. However, if you filed your taxes and you must show all incomes and your income tax shows the additional 10k then use your W-2 from the job and tax return to show total gross income.

Immigration prefers IRS 1040 tax returns to prove your income. When you have your taxes completed for 2014, include a copy with your I-864. If you just started your job like 30 days ago; then, submit paystubs and an employment letter. Have your tax person go over your 1040, and have an Immigration Attorney review and file your green card packet application for you. Good luck.
