I am just starting out applying for a visa to join my fiance and get married in Boston USA, I am from UK.

My fiance has just started filling out the Affidavit I-134 form and my initial question is How does his finances effect this application? He has a steady well-paid job in th USA that he has been working in for 4 years with all benefits like health insurance included. Like so many of us his balance is minimum at this time of year...how will this effect us? Do they just want to see he has a steady income and long standing job or are they looking for the amount of savings?

Also, do they look into my finances?

I love him and we just want to be together! :crying: Are there any other visa options for me?

I am sure i will have many more questions as already i am finding all this very confusing.

Any help or advise would be appreciated.

Many Thanks

Olivia

All they are concerned with is INCOME, if income exceeds 125% poverty line then everything is fine.

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.

It is only important that his income equals at least the 125% over the poverty line.

He does not have to have savings or assets. :no:

He only has to proof his annual income for the last recent 3 years that he is eligible to sponsor you (tax returns, pay stubs and W-2s). You'll be fine. Don't worry. :thumbs:

Hi. They are mainly looking for a steady income. If he makes 125% over the poverty level you will be fine. If he doesn't than you can use savings to prove that you won't become a burden to the country. :-) I am sure some more people will add more help. Not sure where the link it to the poverty guidelines but again some nice member may know and post it! You came to the right place if you are confused. Plenty of knowledge to be gained from everyone.

Many Thanks

Olivia :wacko:

Google "125% of poverty guideline"

If you're just starting, the I-134 comes months later.

Go to google.com and search for 2008 Federal Poverty Guidelines. There is a chart and it depends on the number of people in the household. If it is just you and your fiance then it would be

a family of 2. Poverty level for 2 is $14,000. 125% would be $17,500 if I just did the math correctly...

:no: NO.

They are required at time of visa interview, if it is sent to USCIS with I-129F, USCIS will discard it, it is NOT in form I-129F directions.

I-134 is specified by the embassy NOT USCIS.

You can submit them with the petition but it is very likely the Embassy will want more recent information as the interview is probably many months away.

Read through the K-1 Guide checklist to see what you should be sending now.

I'm 40 miles NW of Boston... hopefully you will love it as much as I do! Although... we do play real football here! :rofl:
