i-134 isn't exactly what im looking for, i need an example of the actual letter for affidavit of support as described in the of-167 form

The I-134 IS the letter you're looking for. Consulates use the I-134 for K visas, and other visas that don't automatically result in a green card but require financial sponsorship. They use the I-864 for visas that automatically result in a green card. There are links to both forms on the T&T US Embassy website:

http://trinidad.usembassy.gov/new_link.html

When they say the affidavit is optional, they might mean the form itself is optional. They usually require supporting evidence, like tax returns and employment letters. Since the I-134 isn't a legally binding contract, it's little more than a cover letter for the supporting evidence. For this reason, some consulates don't care if they get the form, since they're going to make their decision based on the supporting evidence anyway.

On the other hand, some consulates are unbelievably ####### about the I-134 form itself, and will reject it if it's filled out exactly right. Go figure. :blush:

Thanks. But in the of-167 form it explains that the affidavit of support Letter is an optional addition to the I-134 form I filled out explaining my finances and what my expectations were upon my financees arrival inthe us along with my willingness to purhase a bond to ensure my fiancée doesn't become a financial burden on the gov.

Actually the I-134 is the principal document in this case and the OF-167 is a supplement to the I-134. Not all consulates require the OF-167 but all that I am aware of do require the I-134. From my readings, it is my understanding that the OF-167 supplements the I-134 and for consulates that require it, both the I-134 and the OF-167 must be presented at the interview.

It's optional in For the Trinidad embassy interview but I would like to have all my bases covered so that's why I was asking if anyone had a affidavit of support letter I could use as an template.
