I am helping my husband to file the i-184ez form. We have a couple questions about Part 5: Information about your employment income.
2013 - his income was $0 as he was unemployed and he was told by the tax adviser that he did not need to file tax
2014 - his income was $89811 (he was working in London at this year)
2015 - His income was $35076 (he was working in London but he made the redundant in April 2015. However, he was studying MBA in the same time)
2016 - He just got a new job in December 2015 and his salary is $100K per year.
Please note that he has some savings as well.
Please kindly advise if this evidence above are enough to proof for the US embassy? I am not sure if we need a joint sponsor as his current salary exceeds the poverty level for Florida.
Thank you in advance for your kindly help.
I am not sure what you mean by the poverty level in Florida. You should make sure that his income currently exceeds the poverty level for the requisite family size as provided by the Form I-864P, which is available here:https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/files/form/i-864p.pdf. The NVC should provide you with a list of documents that you can send as evidence of his income. An experienced immigration attorney can help to make sure that you submit the proper types of documents and minimize the risk of delay in consular processing.

If husband's income (no matter where and how earned) exceeded 125% of the federal "poverty" guidelines for a household of 2 for the year 2015, as shown on this federal tax return Form 1040 (it did), as well as his current income does, which it does, he then does not need a joint sponsor.
