She only needs to attach the 1040 AND W2 for 2016.

If she cannot find the W2 she needs to get a tax transcript from IRS.

She may get a Request for Evidence asking for 2017 earnings and she can submit pay stubs from her jobs from 2017 because they show year to date total income on each payroll check.

If her income this year is below 125% poverty level she will need to complete the I864 and also a joint sponsor needs to complete an I-864.
