Hi all,

My friend already had NOA2 appoved last week. He's using a Co-sponser since his income does not meet the guideline. His family is willing to do a co-sponser.

1) both Petitioner and co-sponser must fill-out I-134?

2) Question 3, This affidavit is executed on behalf of the follow person: does the co-sponsor also fill out the Petitioner's fiancee?

3) Question 11, Petitioner only need to write "N/A (K1 visa process for permanent residence)" and Uncheck all? correct?

4) Question 11, does co-sponser need to write anything, or put a check mark on "Intent" or Unintent?

please help

1. Yes.

2. Yes.

3. Yes, but double check in the forum for your consulate. N/A is usually the way to go but each consulate is different.

4. If you go with N/A, you don't check anything. All you would write in the space is the N/A situation.

Hi, I do not like the VJ suggested answer for question 11. Yes, N/A, K-1 visa will work for some consulates and some members will post here that it worked for them. I think it is not the best answer to give especially when you have a joint sponsor.

Both sponsor (USC Petitioner) and joint sponsor should check "I intend" and then on the three lines provided, the petitioner should write "[i intend] to provide food, housing, etc.... <for the beneficiary <name>"

I like it if the joint sponsor also checks "I intend" but do not list any amounts of money or time frame. Joint sponsor should write "{i intend] to supplement as necessary food, housing, etc... for the beneficiary <name>"

Some Embassies like London (I think) want you to check I intend. I think it is much safer as it cannot be refused or denied, but the N/A has been refused by Consular Officers. Also responses that do not match from Sponsor and joint sponsor have been refused such as "I intend" and "I don't intend"

Good luck

An individual family member can act as co-sponsor. A "family" cannot. Pick the family member who qualifies based on their own individual income. No combining income for a K visa.

I have the same question. So if you check "I intend", the form says to indicate exact nature and duration of the contributions, e.g. how long to provide housing, how much the monetary amount and how often and for how long.... How do I answer that on the form?

One other thing on filling I-134, for question 3, relationship to sponsor, how does the co-sponsor fill that? My mom will be my co-sponsor.

1)Do not name a specific time frame not amount of money. This is a LIFELONG commitment you are entering into. That question is not worded well for the K-1. Both sponsor and joint sponsor should check "I intend" to avoid a CO that does not like the answer "N/A" K-1 Fiancee Visa." You cannot go wrong with "I intend..." "to provide housing, food, etc...and all necessary items..." The joint sponsor could write "I intend" "to supplement housing, food, etc...and all necessary items."

2) The Relationship to Sponsor is "Fiancee of Son" for the Joint Sponsor.

Thanks very much for the clear answer.

Duh, I should've thought of that... Thanks a lot.

1) I hope the Embassy for Colombia accepts a joint sponsor. I am not saying one way or the other that they do.

2) How much the mother must earn depends on the total number of dependents she needs to claim.

3) The mother needs to claim herself and you the Alien Beneficiary. She does not need to claim your fiance. If it is only the two people she needs to earn US $18,212.

4) If the amount of money your fiance earns is bleow the $18,212, nothing is done with the monty. He still needs to fill out an I-134 listing you as the beneficiary.

5) His mother must also fill out the form listing you as the beneficiary. She must also list her other dependents. If she has other dependents such as other children or a mother in the house that she pays for, she needs to earn more than the $18,212.

thanks for the information, they are really helpful.

so if my sister to joint-sponsor for my fiance', what would she put on number 3??

the beneficiary's name, i.e the person who's getting the visa, in this case i take it that's your fiance.
