The difference?

I have a quick question... I am in the process of K1 visa and want to know what is the reason of a I-134 Affidavit of Support and I-864 Affidavit of Support?

Don't worry about the I-864, it is for immigrant visas and the K1 is technically not an immigrant visa even though it functions like one. If your were applying for a CR1 visa, like I am because we are married, you would use the I 864.

Edit: I should have mentioned that I do believe that you will eventually have to fill out an I-864 later on as part of adjusting status once the marriage has taken place.

Here is the K1 guide and how to adjust status once married, just in case you missed it.

As previously posted, the I-864 is used for Immigrant Visas. The K-1 visa application normally requires the I-134.

Additionally, after marriage in the US, you will do AOS or Adjustment of Status with USCIS. For that you will then submit the I-864.

Good luck

I am a little confused. Are you going through AOS right now? If you are, you and your joint sponsor would have to file an I-864 (although I admit that I am not as familiar with the K1 steps). If you have not yet had the interview, it would be the I 134, which is not legally binding like the I-864. It would help if you would fill in your timeline.

Hi there...

If you are in K1 process like your profile says, then your lawyer is obviously ripping you off. I-134 is the Affidavit you need if you are in K1 process. The other one i.e. I-864 is for AOS or marriage based immigrants. Your joint sponsor or co-sponsor should fill in I-134 and provide all required documents (pay stubs, tax returns, bank statements and that is because he/she really needs to show that he/she is willing to help you and your fiance and be your co-sponsor again once you are married and file your AOS).

Good luck and get rid of that lawyer of yours. You can find tons of info and advice here, you don't need a lawyer.
