A family member is fine as long as they meet the 125% for the number of people they are supporting.

Dear Laura and Nick

Are you sure that is correct ? I thought I read somewhere that if the person was going to co-sponser then that co-sponser had to live with you ??

I could be wrong, Im so confused !!

Co sponsor can be anyone, and does not be a member of same household. Relative is preferable.

Where is the information about 125% of the poverty line? I have heard people talking about it but I havent seen info about it. I guess I will after I send in the I-129F and start to REALLY check out the next steps

Technically the consulate needs to follow 100%, but many knowing that adjustment of status requires 125% expect 125% also.

Page 10 of I-864 info doc from DOS:

Consular officers will review immigrant visa applicants whose visa categories do not require the I-864 under the public charge guidelines in Section 212(a)(4) of the Immigration and Nationality Act. The applicants must show that they will not become a public charge. A consular officer may ask for an Affidavit of Support, Form I-134 and supporting documents. The sponsor will need to show income at 100 percent of the federal poverty guidelines for household size, not the 125 percent required under Section 213A of the INA.
http://travel.state.gov/pdf/I-864GenInfo-FAQ-Final.pdf

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.
