Default Applying for US Spousal Visa from abroad

Hi, my husband (US citizen) and I (British citizen) are currently living and working in Ireland. We would like to move to the states to be near family. As we are both working and do not want to be separated we would like to file for the visa whilst living here. My husband has a job here in Ireland, I understand we need to show his income for the visa. Does he need to have a job or job offer from the states to prove we want to move back? or can we do it all from here and just look for new jobs when we get there? We would rather not spend anytime apart and both move over together once everything is approved. Thank you for any suggestions and advice!!

As you husband's job in Ireland will end when you move to the US, if he does not have a job to go to in the US when you move then he must have a joint sponsor to sponsor your visa. He will remain as main sponsor .

This can be family/friend.
