Affidavit of Support

16 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, guys. I just wanna ask in behalf of my fiance. I am preparing for my interview documents and my fiance is about to send all the documents that I will be using, he is about to send it to me via FedEx one of this days. My fiance downloaded the new I-134 Affidavit of Support from the USCIS website , this version (Exp.05/31/10) . I am just curious is it true that this new form does n`t need to be notarized. My fiance said there is no need for it to be notarized since it is stated in the Execution of Affidavit (cf. from the I-134 instruction . )it says there" For this reason, it is not necessary to sign Form I-134 before a notary , nor to have your signature notarized after you sign it." because its under penalty of perjury under US Law. I did n`t understand it as much as he explained to me so I am still insisting him to have it notarized. I admit , it gives me confusion. I really don`t have much idea about this Law. I was just avoiding any problems in our documents.I guess I am just so paranoid ! though I understand I was stuck to the idea that it is still need to be notarized.

But we have it final now, he sign this New version of Affidavit of Support and its not notarized anymore, but he attached all his supporting documents. Are we all set for this papers? Do you think we comply all the requirements needed?

Does anybody of you here use this New Form and done with their interview?

Just need some insights about this. Thank you and Merry Christmas! We wish you all good luck for this New Year! God bless!

Sincerely ,

Netscot

Hey guys.. we are gathering stuff for my packet 3. my fiance sent me the I-134 already but noticed that it was the old form (exp 4-30-07) is that still valid??

or should i tell him to send me the new one. he had the old form notarized already.

yes it says prior versions accepted so you will be ok i would think. The same thing happened with us. My SO sent me the 1-134 the other week and after it arrived i found out that there was a newer version available that didn't require the notary :whistle:

But i will take the notarized version with me to the interview in a few weeks time and will find out then if they accept it or not but pretty sure all will be ok :star:

It's just that while waiting for the NOA2 to arrive, time is on ones hands so downloaded the forms earlier than needed, not realising that they may be updated during the waiting time. So it definitely pays to check the uscis website often to see any changes to the forms (something that we will definitely do from now on :) )

hmm hopefully its still okay..

I just noticed this on the USCIS website re: I-134 :: Edition Date : 10/30/2008. Prior versions are also acceptable.

what do you think guys? we dont need to fill up the new one, right?

Hello, shey! I have an old form of affidavit of support also like the one you mentioned and it was notarized. But I have read in USCIS website the newer version of 2008 so I asks my fiance to have it also. I have heard a friend here in VJ, I met her in our medical in SLEC, she was interviewed last Dec.23 in USEM, her fiance prepared the old affidavit form for her and it was accepted and she made it! Good luck and Happy New Year.

Thanks, Netscot! Preparing for the packet 3 and waiting for the interview/medical can be a bit nerve-racking, you want to organize everything and make sure you have what they (USEM) really want.. arggh..

Good luck on your interview.. you have about 2 weeks or so.. lucky you! :)

Ok

I just went through this process stressing about the I-134F, the visa interview process, etc, etc.

I went to my fiance's visa interview with her. It was in Kiev, Ukraine.

I had the I-134F and notorized it...BUT I lost 2 years of my tax filing so i had only 2007, I also misplaced my checking account information so all I had was my savings account(12,000USD) and my paycheck stubs(I work for the government).

They asked 0 questions from her....saw me, when they asked her to come back for her interview asked for my passport. He looked at it then stamped her paperwork and said "good luck".

all updated forms since you posted this are located on the www.uscis.gov website.

So word of advise to EVERYONE who reads this...if you want to be sure your fiance gets the visa....GOTO THE INTERVIEW. And be at least close to each other in age I would say so it appears like a realistic relationship.

Every report I've seen from Kiev has indicated it's one of the easiest possible Consulate, if not THE easiest. Right on a par with London.
