I-134 and Tax Forms

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I just went to the USCIS web page under instructions for filling out the

I-134, http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-134instr.pdf and I don't see where including your tax forms from last year are even listed as necessary. Am I missing something?

for a K-1 the USCIS is not the "standard setter"... the consulate is, so you will need to find out what is needed in the Netherlands possibly it is on the website

Hmmm, their website is not easily navigated to find this info. The closest I got was to click on the I129 info which brought me to the USCIS website!

Anyone have any info on this??

Not needed, often sent. When you get to the next affidavit the requirements change a bit.

As mentioned before, check with the consulate where the local rules supersede.

If your current income is volatile and/or your income history is inconsistent and you believe that past tax return(s) will help to show that you can meet the income requirements then you may want to send them.

This whole K visa process is not about meeting the minimums. It is about successfully obtaining a visa for your loved one. If front loading the process by sending more than enough evidence achieves the goal without the delays caussed by RFE's, then the effort is well worth it.

With regard to the I-134, you (your spouse) will be applying for AOS shortly after you marry. Preparing your I-134 in a manner consistent with the requirements for the I-864 will save you the stress of gathering the docs/info to meet the more stringent requirements of that affidavit of support.

Ah, THANK YOU SO MUCH! This relieves my mind a bit. My income is well above the requirement and I have consistant employment. So, this should be fine. I am still researching to find out what the consulate may require, but so far finding that info has been a bit of a challenge.

Thank you for the info!

According to my fiance, the packet 3 did not include the DS-2000 but it is on his checklist of forms to bring to the interview. He will be calling the consulate on Monday to ask them several questions, this among them.

Thanks for the link to the consulate page but that didn't answer my question on the tax forms.

So, my fiance called the embassy in Amsterdam to ask him the above, among other things. They said, first and formost...STAY AWAY FROM THE FORUMS! Hahahahahaha...But they also said that unless you are self employed, you do not need to send in any tax information. Just thought I would let ya know what they said. This is very good news for me, as I filed jointly with my now ex husband last year and was kind of stressing me out on how they would separate it. I make well above the required amout for the Affidavit of Support, so this is one less thing to worry about.

ONE MORE THING about the DS-2000. The woman at the embassy says that although that is listed on their list, it is not a required form to fill out. That is why he didn't get it with his package.
