I-134 or I-864?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am wondering what they look for (Waraw, Poland). I sent an I-864 with my I-129Ffor the K3 package, but that was 9 months ago, I have new tax info. Should I file both forms?

From my understanding, I-134 are for K-1/K-3 and I-864 are for IR/CR-1 route. If you have new tax info and the interview will be after you file this years tax return, then you would send your latest tax return, I would send the forms as close to the interview as possible so they have no doubt that you are still working and able to support your SO.

Congrats and good luck!!

Ingats!!

They would have just discarded any financial forms you sent with the petition, since they are not needed until later. K3 uses the I-134. Provide it and supporting documentation as close to the interview as possible. Get them to your spouse to provide to the Consulate directly. You don't "file" financials for a K3 visa. You provide them to your spouse.

Most people do wait to compile the I-134 forms and information. In my instance, I included the I-134 in the I-129F filing (for a K-1) to USCIS, and the I-134 remained with the file when the consulate received it. (One of the only "good" things about my otherwise-rogue, ####### consulate was that it had no problem accepting the I-134 that I had attached to the original I-129F petition.) Because some of that financial information had become rather old, I prepared a "refresher" addendum (and a couple of attachments) to indicate what happened to various CDs that had matured, my bank account levels, etc. Although my technique was out of the ordinary, the end result fit(s) with pushbrk's advice here to "provide it and supporting documentation as close to the interview as possible."

06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).

Your case is unusual but the OP submitted an I-864, which cannot be used for a K3 visa.
