Asked in Immigration Law for Virginia

Q: Does driving for Uber Eats income qualify you to sponsor a spouse to the U.S.A (Affidavit Of Support)?

I am currently driving for Uber Eats and trying to make enough money for Affidavit Of Support to bring my wife to the USA, I wanted to know if that income qualifies me to do so?

And also another question, does showing one month of income is enough for Affidavit Of Support?

If no, how many months of income should I show?

And what is the best method to bring my wife as fast as possible?

A: Any income qualifies to sponsor a foreign national spouse.

However it’s usually done by a tax return filed, paystubs, or other provable means of income. One a month of delivering food would not be sufficient.

A: Uber Eats is a lawful means to earn a living. The issue is your gross income. More information is needed. You may need a competent and experienced immigration attorney to figure it out. Good luck.

A: The employment is acceptable. You will need to meet the required income amount found at USCIS.gov/I-864p.

Generally the amount on your most recent Federal Income Tax Return is your most recent income. Also three to six monthly income statements or paystubs.

One month paystub will not be sufficient. You'll need to show that you have maintained the income for longer than a month.
