I'd like to know what's the difference between I-134 and I-864. Please help! :innocent::help:

The I-134 is intended for non-immigrants (students, temporary workers, etc) while the I-864 is for immigrants. Technically, K1 visa holders enter the United States as non-immigrants. The K1 visa is conditional and only allows them to stay in the United States only 90 days if they do not get married. Of course most K1 visa holders will chose to get married. Once they are married they will need to apply for immigrant status (Adjustment of Status) and the I-864 is used for this.

From what I can tell, or from my experience, the I-134(promise to be able to support the incoming spouse to USA) is for interviews at US embassy in spouse's country and the I-864 is more severe and binding, more like a guarantee you make in contract with the US Federal Governent to support above poverty living standards for the foriegn spouse, used in the US when you apply for the AOS application process. :crying:
