I-134 Help!

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Thank you again to all of you who post on this site, the advice and support is really invaluable.

I read the topic below about what people submitted for the I-134 and proof of funds, and it made me somewhat nervous. I recently graduated college, and last year I had only a part-time job. Thus, on my W-2 for last year, I made something right around the poverty line, about $14,000.

Now, since then, I've gotten a much higher paying job with a very well known company. I have a letter from them explaining my start date, my salary, and the fact I am eligible to receive a bonus at the end of the year. I am also working on getting a record from my bank showing the total of deposits made into the account over the last year. My current bank statement shows that I have some savings, about $14,000, but I don't have any other assets.

Do people think that this will be suffcient? I mean, based on the information provided by my employer I should be fine, but I really don't know if I have anything other than that, and I don't have the W-2 to back it up.

Any thoughts or suggestions you have would be most greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

I am pretty sure the letter from your employer should be sufficient. Based on your timeline you application went really smooth. Make sure your fiancee presents all those letters, documents and what not at the interview.

Good luck,

Mike.

My wife was asked for the Aff. of Support with the 3 years of tax documents. If you do not have that, I believe any other proof of income will be sufficient. As for the letter from the employer, your best bet is to get it notarized. This means the employer's rep will need to sign it in front of a notary. Same for the bank statement. Without the notarization, there is nothing to say that you didn't just make the letters yourself - and the consulate is not about to go making phone calls to verify anything.

Good luck!

PEOPLE: READ THE APPLICATION FORM INSTRUCTIONS!!!! They have a lot of good information in them! Most of the questions I see on VJ are clearly addressed by the form instructions. Give them a read!! If you are unable to understand the form instructions, I highly recommend hiring someone who does to help you with the process. Our process, from K-1 to Citizenship and U.S. Passport is completed. Good luck with your process.

You should be fine with that employer letter. They understand that just because you only made part-time money last year (on your W-2) this year you should make so much more based on your employer letter. As long as your new salary is going to exceed 125% of the poverty level, you should be fine.

Having $14,000 in the bank is pretty darn good!!! (I think mine said like $325 or something!)

Akdiver has a good point too, it can't hurt to get it notarized. That would make it all official and stuff. Mine wasn't notarized, only the I-134 and bank statement (that's only cause the same lady that typed up the statement was the notary for the I-134, my employment letter and W-2s weren't notarized.)

Basically, as long as it's all legit that you're going to be able to provide for your little honey, there shouldn't be a problem. It seems like lately they're a lot more concerned with the actual "love" portion of it than the "support" portion. Go figure!

Good luck!

Ensure your beneficiary makes and brings with them to the States a copy of the DS-3025 (vaccination form)

If the government is going to force me to exercise my "right" to health care, then they better start requiring people to exercise their Right to Bear Arms. - "Where's my public option rifle?"

That's the way it seemed. Plus, I can't offer much in the way of "support."
