Notarizing Form I-134 (Affidavit of Support)

10 posts in this topic Register to Ask a Question

My fiance and I are going to the notary to get our final piece of paper for my interview. On the I-134, Affidavit of Support there is NO place for a notary signature, and little room on the form. Where/how does the notary sign it? On the instructions it said you need a notary for the Affidavit of Support, or consular officer to sign. Thanks in advance!

the new form requires NO notarization, so it appears... this was removed in the last form update that just recently came out.

moving from K-1 to:

You are almost there and now you have to deal with the embassy. This is the place to post your experiences or questions related to this last step before moving to the US. Topics relating to I-134's, packets sent from consulate and medical & police certificates should be posted here Edited by payxibka

Yes, the instructions on the website have not been updated to conform to the instructions on the latest form. I'd use the form instructions. Do make sure you use the new form with no space for a Notary to sign. Edited by pushbrk

Hi Psalm...actually, they DID update the instructions. Look under the October 2008 new instructions under the heading "Execution of Affidavit" on the first page, first column. The new instructions are actually extremely clear. No notarization required because the form is signed under penalty of perjury. They changed the instructions to reflect the new form. Good luck!

I think she means they haven't changed them on the website, the page where you download the form from.

I also read. It seems they have updated some of the instructions, not all. It states here...

Prior versions are also acceptable.

I have the previous copy of the form ready for my interview.
