I'm really nervous, that my Fiancee' and I have made it this far and we may have an issue with the I-134.  


Here's the situation.  


I have custody of my son and my fiancee' has custody of her son.  So I think that makes us a family of 4.  


Last tax year (2013) I lost my job (I coach college basketball) in august.  I was a coach at a small college and didn't make much anyway as a "part-time" employee (15K).  I had previously been at a bigger school making more back in 2012, 2011, etc so I had maybe 20K in my bank account and I didn't live lavishly.  I collected unemployment from August to Feb of 2014.  My 2013 tax return has an income of 19,567.  


After my unemployment benefits ran out in Feb of 2014, I made an additional $6,000 at 2 small part time jobs which I no longer do.  For the past few years I have also run some small basketball tournaments that made a little bit of cash but nothing really worth detailing.  Well this year since I had a lot of free time I really worked hard to make the tournaments a financial success.  The tournaments did well and in 5 days during the month of July I turned a profit of close to $50,000.  I am in the process of becoming an "official" business, but currently myself/my tournaments are NOT an official business.  That said I have close to $60,000 split between 2 bank accts....1 of which is paypal (altho not a large amount in there).  Other than my "asset", I own no house or nothing of serious value....just the liquid bank balance.  


My best friend is willing to also do an I-134 for me....he's willing to give me his bank balance (and statements worth about 40K), along with pay stubs (he's a teacher) and his last years taxes (He made about 50K).  


We have a interview at the Nairobi consulate on Sept 30th, 2014.  


My question I need my friend's I-134.  Without him....with no job and no real way to prove where I got this money, will my fiancee' and I be turned down???  If I use my friend's info....will that be enough info to get approved???  


Any thoughts, advice would probably help my nerves quite a bit.  For some reason it took our NOA2 almost 8 months when most people seemed to be getting approved in under 2 months.

arrowAOS interview too soon, we feel insufficient! HELP.

Hello VJ,


We recently received our notice to appear for the AOS interview in 2 weeks time. W e are adjusting from K1 and K2.

So we have been married for 4 months now. Our interview notice came just 2.5 months after the application, and i am grateful.

But looking at the requirements, we feel a little insufficient.


So we do not have the 'traditional' joint bank accounts, utility bills, car insurance etc under both names. I just received my EAD in the mail a few days ago and still looking for work. Husband has been taking care of all bills from his checking account, and i thank God for him. We were sort of waiting for when i can start working and then we can start sharing the bills. I have read here widely on the kind of questions asked at the interview and we feel that we have no problems with what we might be asked about our lives together. Its the 'other documents' that are giving us some gray areas.


This is a list of what we have, please review and advice on what we may do to certify the IO:


-Lease agreement (We added my name to this recently).

-Family medical cover (From his work)

-Family Y membership

-Pictures from everyday and trips we have taken together

-Mails from my daughters school (listing both of us as parents)

-Cards from each other on various occasions (and from family too)

-Future vacation trips booked and paid for the 3 of us. 



Thanks in advance for taking your time to read and give your invaluable advise!!

arrowBringing Mom to the US after several B1/B2 visa denials

Hi everyone,


I have a question hopefully someone with great insight can help me. My mom applied for the B1/B2 visa several times in the past and was denied. I was a greencard holder then but now I'm a US citizen. I know I can petition for her to come but that would take approximately 12-18 months.


I'm really in need of her to come for a short stay and assist me with the kids. I have no other family in the US and I'm a fulltime student. What should I do in order for her to come? Do you think me being a citizen increases her chances for the B1/B2 visa this time around? The embassy she has been going to is in Nairobi - Kenya and it hasn't been easy. She is very reluctant to go there again, but I really do need her.  


Thanks for any insight!

On August 11, 2014, we transferred your I129F,
PETITION FOR FIANCE(E), to your local USCIS Office for
further processing. The new office has jurisdiction over
your case and will send you a decision as soon as
processing is complete or you will be notified if further
information or action is needed. If you move, please use
our Change of Address online tool to update your case
with your new address.

on August 8th,on the USCIS website,it did say that our case has been transfered to another office for further Processing then on AUGUST 11th it says that our case has been sent to our local USCIS office,I don't understand what's going on............we haven't received anything from the mail yet
