Self-employed and and I-134 question

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Denmark

Hi everyone,

We sent our I-129F in January and are still waiting for our NOA2 but I want to start gathering all the various things together in preparation for the next stage.

I have a question about the I-134: I'm American but have been living and working in England for 9 years (my fiance is from Denmark). During this time I've been freelancing through a limited company I set up- essentially self-employed. Because of this I'm unable to get a letter from an employer to verify employment as I'm not technically an employee at the office I work at every day. So far the evidence I'll be able to show is:

-Tax transcripts with IRS- I've just finished filing the last 3 years of my taxes with them

-Business bank account statements- These are not in my name but in the name of my limited company

-Certificate of Incorporation- This shows that i am the Director of my limited company

-Several letters verifying bank transfer of my salary into my account (i don't get pay stubs)

Does anyone know if this will be enough for the I-134? Do I need to provide any additional items since I'm self-employed? Does it matter at all that I've been working in England and not the USA?

Thanks in advance!

I doubt it matters where you have been working as long as you filed your taxes with the IRS... the purpose of the I134 to provide them with proof that you can be financially responsible for your fiance :)

About the amount of documents, I think you will be fine. My fiance is also self employed but she has less documents to show (she only has tax transcripts, normal bank account statements and paystubs, whatever she does is not listed as a company).

Also, history doesn't matter as much as the present will matter to them :)

Of course you can't get an Client/Customer to give you a "letter" of employment.

You are self employed.

Read instruction on I-134 for Self Employed:

Only need a copy of last years records

or Comm. Bank Rating (whatever that is)
