So confused about the i-134

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

In an earlier thread I already wondered if my fiance (the petitioner) and I (benificiary) will need a joint sponsor since my fiance has only started working in December 2014 ( he had just graduated then). I already got the answer that we do but now a million questions are flashing through my head..

  1. Since we only need one of his parents to be our joint sponsor, how will this work for what she writes down? She has her husband and 2 kids in the household but her husband is providing as well, so does she write down what they both make? Or does she write down what she makes herself?
  2. If she is the only one joint sponsoring us, if she`s not head of the family does she write down she has no people in her household, since husband is the head of the family? Or does she write down 4 people in her household, her, herself, and her son(my fiance who still lives at home) and daughter?
  3. It seems to me like if she only has to write her own income but a household of 4 it isn`t a right representation, since both her and her husband provide for the 4 of them? In that case, is it best to have both his parents be a joint sponsor?
  4. What does this question mean? 10."I have previously submitted a visa petition to US citizenship and immigration services on behalf of the following person." Do they mean, eg my fiance filing an i-129f for me? Or am I reading this question completely wrong?
  5. I thought for the interview we only have to take the i-134 with us but I`ve read some people were asked to show the affidavit for the AoS on their K-1 interview as well? Is this only the case in high-fraud countries or should I go prepared and take that one to my interview as well?
  6. Since my fiance is still living at home with his parents and we will probably live over at his parents house for a few months before getting our own place and his mom will be our joint sponsor, would she have to write me down as an extra in her household for the i-134 or not?
  7. Will they ever ask about my bank accounts or my payment or whatnot? And if not, could I western union him the money I have on my savings account so he has a better amount to write on his affidavit? He as a good amount but if they`ll never inquire about my account it seems as a loss for me to keep it on my account? I don`t know where my brain is taking me with this one!!

I`ll probably have many more questions soon but my scattered brain is only allowing me to think of these right now, which is plenty already! I`m so sorry to ask all these questions but since my fiance works long hours so we can save up some money for when I get there, I am doing this mainly by myself and things get so confusing at times.

Thanks in advance for all the help!

Why do you need a joint sposnor?

A recent graduate should earn enough to meet the requirements.

I was told in my other thread that because he can not provide what he`s been paid in the last 2 years, since he`s only worked for a good 6 months, we can`t do it on our own?

Wrong, he has to file taxes and/orshow he had now need to.

Meet the income requirements. There is no time set as to how long he has had a job, ideally more than a week, but he has had his for more than 6 months.

Saw your edit, my guess is that poster misread your post, anyway when somebody says something contradictory to everything else best to check.

I quickly glanced at it and first time read doesn't make the required amount, after all why post if you do?

Yeah if he currently works and can show his paystubs, all they really have to do is a little bit of math that he makes more than enough for the year. Ya'll should be good. Current income is the most important.

so other than his payment stubs to show he currently makes enough what should we include with the i-134? His current bank account status, his stocks and bonds, where can he get that info? (I`m asking cause idk for sure if he knows and I won`t be able to really talk to him till friday)

And what could he use for proof that he had no need to file taxes? What proof can he give ( that they will accept) that he was still enrolled in college and couldn`t go work?

thanks in advance if we don`t need a joint sponsor it`ll all be way easier. If we do so be it but it`s not something we looked forward to asking his mother

Apparently he did file taxes although he had no income and was still a student. Does he include the last tax thing then, as well as a letter stating why he had no job (cause he was in school)? And does he need proof that he was in college? What proof should he add?

We`ll also be including all his pay stubs and a letter from his employer confirming his job and his annual pay.

You are WAY over doing this.

He has to show he filed etc taxes, not justify the filings, they are not the IRS.

For current income some recent pay stubs and a short letter from his Employer would do.
