I-134 annual income and scanned docs

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Ok so I found the answer to this a long time ago, but now I just can't remember what the answer is. I know with the all the documents sent my petition to USCIS had wet signatures on them. Will this be the same with the I-134? Is it essential? Obviously it would be easier having my fiancé emailing it to me but if he has to send it, no biggie.

This question is a really dumb one but, hey hoe, better safe than sorry. Question 7 - Is the annual income gross (before deductions) or net (after deductions). He's in the military so it doesn't really matter because he earns enough. I want him to put the right amount on the form!

I sent a scanned copy of my I-134 to my fiancee. We didn't have any problems. I know plenty of people here think you need a "wet" signature but I don't recall reading any stories here about being put under review due to having just an I-134 copy.

Embassy instructions generally say "original I-134", but I think by original they mean it is specifically for your K-1 petition and hasn't been used for any other petition/application.

As for income, it is gross.

Your I-134 should be wet signed by you. Every immigration form for any process should be original meaning not a photocopy or a scan. Is your fiancé deployed or on a ship where he can't easily put something in the mail? Do the right thing and get him to mail you a proper I-134.

The income is gross.

London is very flexible on the proof of income. Employer letter seems to be their favorite, but will accept a tax return if you don't have a letter.

Oh ok then. I'll get him to post it to me. No he's not deployed anymore, he's back on base. It's just that he's lazy, hence why I'm doing all the work (that's the only reason why it will be easier).

He was trying to get a tax transcript from the link you posted in the 'A complete guide' post, but because it asks which transcript are you after, he got confused and just didn't get one. Smh! So I think an Employer letter would be much easier.

But ok, thanks. I'll be sure to get him to do that.

Would it be ok if I added a copy of his (most recent to when I need it at the interview) pay stub? That shows everything on it.

Lazy fiancé, huh? Get his @rse moving. I don't know anything about military, but there may be some document that lists his rank and pay grade. That will do as an employer letter. It shows he is "employed" by the USN and how much he makes. That could be a photocopy. Or his commanding officer could write something and sign it.

Would it be ok if I added a copy of his (most recent to when I need it at the interview) pay stub? That shows everything on it.

You can add anything you want. London is happy with one proof, so you don't need to worry about employment letter and tax return and pay stubs and bank statements. They often hand back the extras.

FYI- on the IRS site it is the Tax RETURN transcript not the tax account transcript. It will require him putting the same address he used when he filed that return and some piece of info from that return (forgot). It is for security purposes to ask for that info before he can download the transcript.
