Question ??

I have a weird question about the amount of money I need to make ... Its kind of complicated so here goes.

First of all. I made (according to my Check stubs) 23,108.00...but according to my w-2 it is 18,455.56.(this is because my retirement and my medical, dental etc is taken out BEFORE taxes ) Which is enough to bring him over....BUT not if I claim my granddaughter (which I want to do for obivious reasons)

Will the USCIS take this into consideration when going for the approval or do they just look at the W-2 ??

I have such a weird case, because right now my daughter lives with me, so I guess that could be a good thing and a bad thing.....as I am supporting her and the baby right now, but by the time he gets ready to come over.... then she might be able to co-sponser ??

Please tell me am I making any sence at all ???

And I havn't figured out how to put our timeline on here. Could somebody help me ??

Thanks

USCIS has nothing to do with the I-134 used for the visa interview, it is of the discretion of the visa officer at the consulate to decide if income is enough to provide support. The I-134 and financial data is not need at the time of I-129F filing, it is needed for visa interview.

You use gross income, not income after taxes and deductions when figuring out income level.

One thing about I-134, the directions included with I-134 are very old, USCIS has no reason to update them since USCIS has no application for that form.

The consulates tend to treat the I-134 like a mini-I-864 as so prefer the same financial evidence as the I-864.

In our case this what the I-134 included.

  • I-134 signed and notarized.

  • SIMPLE Tax transcripts from the IRS for past 3 years, (Redundant for the (1040,W2,1099) but are free from the IRS http://www.irs.gov/faqs/faq1-6.html

  • Photo copy of IRS form 1040, and W2s for past 3 years (Not necessary if you provide the transcripts)

  • Letter from my employer stating annual salary, job responsibility, and that is full time, on company letterhead.

  • Photo copies of past month or so of pay stubs up to a few weeks before the interview.
My income was well above the povertyline so I did not include any asset data (LIKE BANK STATEMENTS or property values).

If your income exceeds 125% of the povertyline when counting yourself, prospective immigrant and any dependents, then don't bother with assets (401K, Bank balance, Stocks etc..), it is just extra un-needed data to provide, the consular officer is most concerned with INCOME.

I was refering to the I-864 ... Is that the same thing as what you are talking about ??

Also... I dont know how to add my timeline here

Is there a chat room here ?

Thanks

You posted this to the K-1 forum, so I will assume you are talking about the initial I-129F petition, NOT adjustment of status. Your profile indicates you have filed for (N/A) but timeline indicates K-1 filed for 1/10/08 so I can only assume you are at the visa petitioning stage.

K-Visas use form I-134 affidavit of support NOT the I-864 for the visa.

I-864 is used for GREEN-CARDS, either when filing I-485 to adjust status from K-Visa to immigrant in the USA, OR for IMMIGRANT visas like CR-1 or IR-1.

Please fill in profile details like "Filed for" and Country. http://www.visajourney.com/forums/index.ph...rCP&CODE=01

I don't know much info about the income questions, but as for your timeline, in the upper right hand corner there is a link that says "My Assistant". Click on that and there is an option for "add/edit timeline" click on that and then you can enter all of your info. Good luck with the rest of your journey :thumbs:

Thanks for the profile update.

From that I can give you this:

Affidavit of Support

Persons in the U.S. who wish to furnish sponsorship of a fiancee or Kii visa applicant in the form of an affidavit of support should use form I-134 which is available from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Sponsors may also elect to furnish a statement in the form of an affidavit sworn to before a notary public or other official competent to administer an oath, setting forth his or her willingness and financial ability to contribute to the applicant's support and reasons, in detail, for sponsoring the applicant.
