Folks,

I have just had an 'We need to talk' from my fiancee...

She was at the bank today to get the letter to got with the I-134 and they have refused to mail it to her. They will however mail it direct to the US Embassy in London.

My question is... Would this be OK, and would London actually accept the form direct from them [the bank]?

Thanks...

Thats rediculous! What bank? Since when can a member of a financial institution not get a statement of their own records! What exactly did she request?

She should tell them she is removing all her funds and going to another bank and see if that gets their attention.

FYI - I never asked for anything from the bank for my I-134. I just provided the most recent 6 months of my bank statements, pay stubs, letter of employment and most recent 2 years of tax returns and w2's.

Check in the regional forum for London, I doubt you really need this anyway.

I didn't even get a bank letter. I just sent recent bank statements (both checking and savings) - I think I even included a few from earlier in that year so they could see a 'pattern' of my balance, etc. Of course he also had my employer letter and tax information for the last three years. I wouldn't sweat getting one anyway.

Yes they will but it must contain a cover letter stating the applicant's (UK person) full name, date of birth, place of birth, and LND case number. That's what the document says that I'm reading. But I think mentioning whose bank account it is....Jane J. Doe, fiance and sponsor of the applicant...would beneficial.

So, if I might ask, is there a significant amount of money in this bank account and assets are being used to provide support for you? I'm suggesting if she has a job, a tax return, and some recent pay stubs, then the letter from the bank is probably not worth the trouble it's taking to get. If she didn't have a job, but had around $60,000 in cash assets, then the bank letter would be important to show the assets.

That's a first for me. If the bank sends a letter to the Embassy, it's possible that it's going nowhere.

I'd ask the bank manager for a written statement, confirming that they refuse to provide reasonable customer service to a good customer. Then 'd file a formal complaint against him or her to the bank's corporate offices and, finally, I'd change banks.


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

I feel your pain arwilson80, I had a huge issue just trying to get my bank to understand what I needed them to write. Took me 2 months to get the letter after talking to numerous customer service reps and the corporate office until I finally got a customer service manager on the phone. It is amazing how something so simple as this letter can be so difficult for them to understand. Needless to say, I will be switching to a larger branch for a bank because I'm not going through that mess again in the future.

Best of luck!

Why do you need a letter from the bank ? Why not just print the online statements off your bank's website?

Far less hassle.

I had a similar problem, the bank (HSBC) refused to write a letter for me at all saying that I was being unreasonable and it couldn't possibly be needed for me to get a visa, I had it wrong... I got this even from the manager. You can trust that I called head office and complained vociferously to the people in charge.

Anyway, I took all my money and moved to Lloyds TSB who wrote the letter for me on the day I opened the account.
