Dear all,

My fiance, the USC, picked up her W2 forms today and now we're concerend about something. She switched jobs in April of 2010, at her old job (up to April) she made $4000 and of April until December 2010 she made $11,400 so her total will be $15,400 ofcourse not enough for the 125% of the poverty guideline, but I read somewhere that some consulates and embassays except the 100% for the K1 visa interview and later ofcourse for your AOS you have to reach the 125%. Mind you that she is a senior in college, so the hing is, my she will be making more this year (in 2011) then she did in the year before, she will make over the 125% in 2011. Would it be ok if we just get a letter from her job stating what she will make in the year 2011? Or do we really need to get a co-sponsor? Or will we be ok because my consulate in the Netherlands excepts 100% of the poverty guideline and then we worry about the AOS interview later?

Thanks for the responds, much appreciated!

I would get a co-sponsor just to be safe! It is always better to have more than less when it comes to these things :)

What all does a co-sponsor has to provide? Just a I-134?

Yup same form, and same documents such as the w2, 1040 etc.. we submitted 3 years worth from the co-sponsor, and none from my fiance (he started working 2010 so no tax returns from him.. but we did have his pay stubs and employment letter and he made a little over 20k but they still questioned this even if its above poverty line. we still got approved though! I am not sure how strict they are about it in the Netherlands but its better to be safe than sorry :)

So knowing that she will make over the 125% poverty guidelines this year doesnt mean anything at all? Her 2009 tax return was something around $22,000 but because of school she couldnt work as much in 2010, but will make more in 2011. If her work just provides her a letter saying; this is what she will make this year etc, will that be ok?

Cause we kinna hate asking people to be realiable for us, knowing that we will have the money.

Yes, understandably its awkward asking this kind of responsibility from other people but sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and do it. Like messybrownhair said, its better to be safe. I'm sure you'd rather ask for help than have your application unnecessarily delayed or even denied.

I think that current income is what is most important - I would have a co sponsor. At this stage the affadavit is not legally binding so maybe you can explain that to whoever will sponsor and they may be more eager to help.

My fiance has just started working since he recently graduated college. We won't have enough pay stubs/evidence by the time we get around to the interview so will use his father as a co-sponsor. By the time AOS rolls around we will have enough proof of income. :)

Good luck.

From travel.state.gov:

Do the Same Income Requirements Apply to Form I-134 as Apply to Form I-864?

No. The 125 percent of the federal poverty guideline minimum income requirement, the most recent year's tax return, and other requirements only apply when Form I-864 is needed. Applicants presenting Form I-134 will need to show that their U.S. sponsor's income is 100 percent of the federal poverty guideline.
