the I-134 NIGHTMARE!

Filed: K-3 Visa Country: Brazil

My parents are in the process of filling out the I-134 as my co-sponsor. My father is retired yet has a job making $28,000. So when he lists his annual income, does he include both his w-2 amount from his job and the amount he receives from his retirement? Also would I have to show proof of this retirement payments? What would qualify as proof or would this appear in the tax transcripts and the transcripts be good enough proof for the retirement money received for the year? ALSO since his annual income exceeds the amount needed to sponsor my wife, does he have to fill out the 7 following questions regarding his bank accounts and assets or does he leave them blank or type n/a? Also he does own a house yet I know he cannot just answer NONE in the line regarding his mortgage or could he? How do I answer these questions.

Also a question regarding myself. My bank verification letter only included my account information since last September since I had to close it in Sept. due to unknown charges to it. It also did not list the total amount of deposits. Should I ask for another Verification letter including the whole year of 2007 with total deposits or doesn’t this matter and the current one that I have is good enough?

What documents need to be notarized??? Does all the copies of proof need to be?

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.

If you are using a co-sponsor forget about your bank statements, the consulate is only concerned one sponsor is makeng above 125% poverty line, your co-sponsor is, so you can provide minimal income data for your I-134.

Only thing needing notarization is the I-134 form.
