Q: bring my wife to the US on relative visa. Had no income in 2021. Currently working. Am I able to use current income?
Can I use my current income now that I'm working for the affidavit of support or do I need to go back to last year?
A: Generally, USCIS likes to see at least three years worth of appropriate income. I recommend finding a cosponsor.
Stephen Arnold Black agrees with this answer
A: The regulations indicate that USCIS is supposed to give the greatest weight to your reasonably anticipated income for the year in which the case is filed. You don't specify what your current income is or what your household size is. So, the answer is "maybe." Either way, consider scheduling a consultation with a competent and experienced immigration attorney who can evaluate your facts. Ever since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, many law offices offer online video consultations.
