Affidavit of Support

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

My fiancé is currently about to start another job - her current job provides an income which is below the poverty line, and as such am I right in saying she can't sign the affidavit of support? Her new job will be better paying, and she will be able to support me until I get a job in the US (which I'm sure won't take long, I am willing to do anything).

So, my question is, can we ask either her father, or her friend to sign it instead? Both of whom have the means to support me if I can't work etc. etc. because if I remember correctly, you have to prove that her income is enough to support us both (her previous income isn't).

We received the NOA2 this week which is both exciting and nerve-racking. I'm just trying to prepare for the next stage.

Many thanks,

David. (UK).

Petitioner always must provide an Affidavit of support no matter what, they can sign it even with no income. Can always enlist the help of a co-sponsor who will also provide an I-134 along with the appropriate income evidence.

Consulate prefer similar financial evidence as will later be used when adjusting status.

Moving to Consulate/Embassy forum, there you will find numerous questions regarding affidavit of support (I-134)

Thanks for taking the time to reply.

I understand what you've written, however, I'm a little confused. There seem to be TWO forms - I-134 and I-864. Do we have to fill them both out, or just one... (not including the ones the co-sponsor has to fill out).

Very confusing!

Thanks again.

David.

I-134 if K-Visas, later will use I-864 for adjustment of status.

I point out the evidence requirements for I-864, because the consulate tend to use these with the I-134, instead of whet the I-134's directions say.

USCIS has little need to update the I-134 directions, because USCIS has little use for the form.

1099 is a US tax document that the US sponsor might have if they have investments or whatnot.

Well got my Packet 3 in the mail on Friday.

Time to get all the stuff together for sponsor and co-sponsor. Does Katie still just need 3 years of tax transcripts, even if the co-sponsor is doing all the sponsoring?

Does he need his tax transcripts too?

As well as proof of residency?

Well since I wrote that, my friend, the co-sponsor was just about to sign the forms, and his mother read them and said:

"You realise you can get sued by the US Government..." at which point he freaked out and bottled out.

So, I'm glad we had a back up in Katie's mother.

My question is: The evidence we need for Katie's mother's income is:

I-134 filled out

W2 + 1099 (whatever they are) OR tax transcripts (even though she hasn't filed 2010's taxes yet).

Photocopy of birth certificate proving US Citizenship?

Will a letter from Katie's mom's employee stating her income work?

Thanks,

D+K
