Affidavit of Support Questions

Recommended Posts

My wife will be undergoing her interview in Manila really soon. I am wondering which affidavit do they want. The I-134 or I-864?

As for the co-sponsor goes, which form, if different, will they want there. I hear every embassy has their preferences.

The CR-1 requires the I-864 as those applying for CR-1 are applying for a conditional greencard without having to do AOS in the US as would occur with the K-3.

A co-sponsor also completes a I-864.

Since you did mention cosponor you might want to look into it futher. Ive heard Manila does not like to accept cosponors.

I was thinking the same thing, certainly for K1.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

But I believe for K1 you also use the I-134 and the guidelines are a little easier to meet. If that helps any im not certain but I think so.

Main difference is that one is enforceable and the other is not.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

Well, my I-130 just became approved just recently, in fact a month before her interview for the I-129f K-3. That why it appears to be in the wrong section. Sori :blush:

I know the differences between the two. I am a PC Technician, so naturally I come off as sounding a little goofy. I will be bringing both I-864 and I-134, heck with it right??

Now I have a question on the I-864. I live with my parents for now, in order to save up some money for me and my huuunie. When it comes to Part 4-B of the I-864 do they mean my parents too? Or maybe perhaps me and my child, but not the one I sponsored??

4 B

1. Number of persons (related to you by birth, marriage or adoption) living in your residence including yourself (DO NOT include persons being sponsored in the this affidavit.)

So yes you would include your parents on the form and your child living with you.

Also for the I-864 one must calculate using all household members which would include your parents as well as your child and your honey of course. As for the child that needs sponsoring. If the beneficiary/applicant is unable to show support of the child themselves then you would need to complete a seperate I-864 for the child. In doing that the first I-864 would also come into play when calculating your ability to support based on your income. Your parents can complete a I-864A and their income can then also be used in calculating household income.

Need to clarify, this is a child of a previous marraige and lives with me. Its just my wife whom I am sponsoring. I was just getting ready to just put myself and my daughter down as my household.

Sorry, I misunerstood your previous post and thought there was another child (of your spouse)

Yeah unfortunately you have to include your parents even though you may not be supporting them. All the best to you.

So far you have been awesome in helping me out. I have my three years of tax info available. One year, 2004, was a little below the poverty level guidelines. The other two years were good tho (2003 & 2005) I had lost a job for 6 months, now I am back on track. Would this mean my Affidavit by itself would not be sufficient, or just 2005's income would do?
