A: If you lacked earnings, then the USCIS may take an average of the annual income. However, if the petitioner remains unemployed during 2022, then the Service has been known to require a joint sponsor in some situations.

If this matter is an issue, then you ought to consider hiring an immigration attorney. The reason is that you can lose valuable time, but also the over $2000 in filing fees and expenses where USCIS, or NVC, becomes dissatisfied, then denies or revokes the filing.
