Hello everybody!!! I have a really really big problem and I'm not sure what to do. I applied for a k1 alien fiance petition for my TURKISH fiance. My petition has been approved, and the American Embassy in Ankara (Turkey)sent me an email today saying that they have received my approved petition. They have asked me for an I-134 form affidavit of financial support and supporting documents such as my W2 for last year's taxes. Now the problem is that I AM NOT ELIGIBLE. Taxes of 2009 I only made about $2500, I have been employed in my father's business for about 6 years now, and unluckly last year work was very very scarce. Another problem I have is that my father can't co-sponse since as I said, his company made very very little money last year, he is not eligible either. Here are my questions:

1.could a friend of mine be my Co-sponsor??? and HOW MUCH would he or she need to have made in last year's tax to be eligible (if he or she is single and has no dependents). What if my friend lives in a state different from where i live, can she still sponsor him???

2.A friend of mine who prepares forms like these for alien fiances told me that I could send my W2 form (which was only $2500) and my current earnigs (my dad's company is doing great now) which are $15 per hour 40 hrs a week around $600 per week, $2400 a month ... a letter from my company, and a job offer for my fiance.

I am seriously panicking now ... i have no idea of what to do PLEASE PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!

1) Your friend can be a joint sponsor if they are a US citizen or LPR (resident). It is OK if they live in another state. She needs to earn 125% of the total number of her dependents plus two (you and your fiance(e) plus your additional dependents like a child from a previous marriage of either of you.) She has to cover 125% of the total number of dependents involved.

2) I don't believe they will consider the job offer for your fiancee. There is no guarantee she will be hired and so on. You could send your current letter of employment, about six months of pay stubs (maybe less) and three years of tax records or transcripts. They might accept that. It depends on the Consulate.

Additionally if you have assets such as cash in a bank account or stocks and bonds you can use evidence of the assets to cover a short fall in income.

Good luck.

For clarity, that should be 125% above the poverty guideline for that number of dependants.

You can find that figure by downloading the following form:

Yes, thank you Tracy. It certainly is not clear. It was meant to be, "earns 125% of the poverty line..."

Correction. 125% above the poverty guideline is equal to 225% "of" the poverty guideline. The requirement is 125% "of" the poverty guideline.

Further, the US Citizen petitioner is NOT COUNTED in the cosponsor's household size.

OMG THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

now lets say that I am a single mother with a child from another marriage, would ME AND MY CHILD be counted in the co-sponsors house hold or ONLY the people who live in his house hold??? THIS IS SUPER IMPORTANT cause judging by this address i got above, If my co-sponsor is single and add my fiance, my son and I ... that requires $31,700.00 which is a LOT!!!

No. The only additional person being added to the household size of ANY sponsor (primary or co-sponsor) is the beneficiary. When you calculate your household size, you include yourself and your dependents and your fiance. When your co-sponsor calculates their household size, they includes themselves and their dependents and your fiance.

The affidavit of support does NOT make a co-sponsor financially responsible for the petitioner and/or their dependents. It only makes them responsible for the beneficiary, which is after all whom they are sponsoring.

And dependents of the foreign beneficiary which are being brought over under derivative Visa status, if any. Isn't that correct Jim?

By extension, yes. It also includes anyone else whom you've signed an affidavit of support for.
