Hi VJ Community!

Just going through the checklist provided for Packet 3 from the US Consulate in Vancouver.

Has anyone had any experience with what constitutes as 'evidence of self support'?

I've emailed the consulate and will post any useful information they give but wanted to also get some pointers from the experts in the community that have been through this process!

Thanks!

The guidelines for that are actually in the instructions for the I-134 - page 1, under the heading Supporting Evidence

You must prove you meet 100% of the current poverty guidelines, however some people recommend you meet the 125% figure I-864P

I'm the beneficiary and I thought that I was somehow able to show 'self support'. I now understand that they are referring to the petitioner. too many forms and words have turned my brain into mush!

thanks trailmix for the clarification!

As promised...this is what the consulate replied: pretty clear as to what they are looking for!

Evidence of Support

A K visa applicant and any accompanying children must meet the public charge requirement of INA 212(a)(15) like any other visa applicant.  Evidence of support is usually requested by the consular officer.  There is, however, no absolute requirement that an affidavit of support or other public charge documentation be presented.  It is only necessary that the consular officer be able to conclude that the alien is not likely to become a public charge.  It would not be unusual, therefore, for a healthy alien of working age, applying alone, to be able to establish eligibility during the visa interview without the need for substantiating documentation.

 

If you present an I-134 completed by your fiancé, and evidence that his income is at least 100% of the federal income guideline, over $25000/year, then it should be ok.
