Does I-134 die when I-1864 come into play?

I read somewhere that those signing a I-134 is bound legally for 3 years to the beneficiary. Yet in 90 days of entry on a K1 or close to it there is AOS where I-1864 comes into play, which is the real deal.

My question is, when I-1864 comes into play, what happens to the 3 year contract under I-134? Does the legal obligation of I-134 and I-1864 exist together simultaneously or does the legal obligation and contract of I-1864 cancel out the legality of I-134?

I have heard I-134 is a short lived document yet it says there 3 years. Unless it is canceled out by I-1864, it makes no sense.


N-400 Stuff:
07/02/16 : N-400 sent

07/11/16 : NOA1

07/28/16 : Biometrics

04/03/17: Interview (approved)

04/14/17: Judicial oath ceremony

Yes, the I-864 supersedes the I-134.

Yes and no. The I-134 is a document given to the consulate to assure them your fiancee will not become a public charge. It has never been held to be "legally binding" and does not include a specific contract as the I-864 does. The I-864 IS legally binding and has been held to be so in courts.

So one could say the I-134 "dies" or becomes obsolete, or one could say it never was anything except a "cover letter" for the documentation you provide anyway. The I-134 is something we deal with to get the visa, the I-864 is a leaglly binding contract you sign with the government to get the permanent residency.
