I do not understand why US Embassy is saying my Affidavit of Support is not sufficient when my current income is well above 125% poverty line but my income for previous year was lower than the poverty line. Does anyone know? Also I didn't start working until 2014 because I was in completing my degree until 2013.Just to add additional information: I am sponsoring my spouse. My income for 2014 was around $12,000 which was below the poverty line But my income for 2015 is around $60,000. Would I qualify as a sponsor with my current annual income or do I need a joint sponsor? US embassy is saying I need a joint sponsor but I do not understand why do I need a joint sponsor if my current annual income is above 125% poverty guidelines.
Without reviewing what was filed, I don't believe any Avvo attorney can provide a fruitful answer.

Without seeing it, tough for us to speculate. Time for an immigration lawyer.
You need to take this to an immigration attorney and get a real consultation. We cannot advise you on specifics like assessing why something was denied if we can't see the paperwork. Many attorneys give free consultations.

When you say your current income is enough ... did you provide more than 6 months of paystubs & and employer letter?
