When my now wife went for her interview, I submitted my affidavit of support and there were no issues. Now, about 5 months later her son is going for his K-2 at the same embassy and I believe I need to submit another affidvait of support? Do K-2 interviews require this? If so, can I use the one I used for his mother, or do it all over. My finances have changed a bit and the "older" one would be better than creating a new one. Any advice is appreciated.uppor

K-2 will need an affidavit.... Is Q3 accurate? How about Q8 or Q9?

You have to submit another affidavit. You can't reuse the one you used for the K1. At the very least, the name of the beneficiary on the form will be different. Since it's after April 15th, the consulate will also want your 2009 tax return. The consulate will consider your financial situation now, and now what it was back when the K1 was issued. With the economy what it is, there are a lot of people wishing they could get the consulate to consider their financial situation one or two years ago. :blush:


12/15/2009 - K1 Visa Interview - APPROVED!

12/29/2009 - Married in Oakland, CA!

08/18/2010 - AOS Interview - APPROVED!

05/01/2013 - Removal of Conditions - APPROVED!

Basically my 2009 return would be ok. When I filed my wifes AOS a few months ago I was employed and could also provide pay stubs. Now I lost my job and collecting unemployment. I am also collectin a pension and could file for social security benefits but wonder if they will consider unemployment as income? Adding all this together, I am above the 125% limit.Additionally, I have a 20 yo daughter ( turning 21 in November)who has a fulltime job and is not dependant on me any longer and dropping her from my affidavit ( she was listed before) would only make things more positive. Do the embassys compare new affidavits to priors ones or does each one stand on their own merit?

The affidavit for your wife's AOS was an I-864... the affidavit for the K-2 is an I-134... two very different forms.

The I-134 you filed at the consulate for her K-1 is no longer at the consulate, so it is not possible to compare.
