I-134 questions

1. First, does anyone have an example of their letter from work for this part of the application:

B. Statement of your employer on business stationery, revealing:

1. Date and nature of employment;

2. Salary paid;

3. Whether the position is temporary or permanent

I asked my manager for it and this is what he sent as a draft, saying he will print, sign, and mail it if it is all right.

Is this good enough?

2. Also, when I try to fill out the I-134 in Adobe Acrobat Professional, it puts my birth date in the four "date submitted" boxes on 10 and 11 as well, I can't edit them separately. Should I hand write those dates or is there a way to get around that error?

3. I have two bank accounts. One is savings only at Wells Fargo, and the other is everything else at a tiny bank with less than 10 branches. Do I have to choose one or can I have a letter of proof from both of them?

My letter of proof from the tiny bank states that I've made over 50k in deposits in the last 12 months, as well as my current balance of about 4k. I've only had this account since March 2006, and I don't have an older one. My letter from Wells Fargo, if I got it, would say that I have about 4.5k in savings.

Would the added total of those two be the answer to:

"I have on deposit in savings banks in the United States:"

For:

"I derive an annual income of: (If self-employed, I have attached a copy of my last income tax return or report of commercial rating concern which I certify to be true and correct to the best of my knowledge and belief. See instructions for nature of evidence of net worth to be submitted.)"

4.How do I figure out my annual income seeing as I've only been employed at this job since October and haven't filled tax forms before? (I'm currently 19) Most of the deposits to my main bank account are from my college fund.

5. My father is also filling this out to be a co-sponsor and he might either list me as wholly dependant or partially seeing as I have a job but pay for school and everything out of my college fund.

Will this be a problem?

His real estate value is in the seven digit range if that makes a difference.

All I really care about is my darling getting his visa so I don't want to mess this up in any way possible. Thank you in advanced.

1. That form looks ok to use.

2. Not seeing that error, and I have acrobat. Check that you are using the current form, or, make sure your acrobat has the latest updates. (if that fails, try to download the 9.0 adobe reader)

3. Are you attempting to use assets to cover the amount needed? (savings) - Your current income has to be 125% poverty level = $17,500.00 per year

4. It's January, you should be getting your W-2's by the end of the month. . However, you just need to show you are making enough to cover the level of income needed. This can be accomplished by having three of you most current pay stubs.

5. If your Dad is going to co-sponser you, then his information is needed and if he is making that much - you should have no problems with that - from the USCIS site:

Who can be a joint sponsor, and when is a joint sponsor allowed?

If the visa petitioner's household income is not sufficient to meet the requirements of INA section 213A and 8 CFR section 213a, INA section 213A permits a joint sponsor to sign an affidavit of support, in addition to the affidavit of support signed by the visa petitioner. A joint sponsor is someone who is willing to accept legal responsibility for supporting your family member with you. A joint sponsor must meet all the same requirements as you, except the joint sponsor does not need to be related to the immigrant. The joint sponsor (or the joint sponsor and his or her household) must reach the 125 percent income requirement alone. You cannot combine your income with that of a joint sponsor to meet the income requirement.

This will give you more information I-134 FAQ


My Advice is usually based on "Worst Case Scenario" and what is written in the rules/laws/instructions. That is the way I roll... -Protect your Status - file before your I-94 expires.

WARNING: Phrases in this post may sound meaner than they were intended to be. Read the Adjudicator's Field Manual from USCIS

I am scratching my head though...

You have in your signature that your Dad turned down your guy from marrying you...

But he will co-sponsor?

FYI -

Just found out

the I-134 support document has been updated. the old one required it to be notarized. The new document does not require a notary. Just make sure to verify which one your consulate is using as it seems all consulates have not yet updated to the new form yet.

May you be blessed with patience, peace, and hearts full of Love,

3. I know I don't make enough money to have a current income of 125% poverty level, hence why my dad is co-sponsoring.

4. Last semester I didn't work enough to be in the income bracket I need to for filing my own taxes.

5. My dad definitely meets the requirements, score!

I am scratching my head though...

You have in your signature that your Dad turned down your guy from marrying you...

But he will co-sponsor?

:blink:

Don't ask me, I don't get it either. He doesn't approve of us getting married, but thinks Arnold is a very positive influence in my life and wants him in the US.

Thanks for the information! I will double check the one I filled out to make sure it is updated, it's the one that shows up when you google "I-134".

That is the new form. USCIS hasn't updated the instructions on the web page but if you read the downloadable instructions it says it does not need to be notarized.

Do you work 40 hours per week?

If so at 10.75 per hour you should not need a 'co-sponsor'.

No I do not, I would make 7740$/year with the hours I'm supposed to get when work starts up again (I'm a college tutor, I don't work on winter breaks).

Do you know if a raw calculation of my yearly pay is what they want if I have no previous tax forms?

Aw gosh, he just sent the letter in a doc, I should probably ask if it's possible for him to print it on company letterhead. I work for a community college so I don't know if we even have official company letterhead available for our little tutoring lab. :(
