I-134 Affidavit of Support - Diversity Lottery

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I initially had posted this in the Diversity Lottery Forum but thought maybe someone from MENA has come across this

I am filling out I-134 Affidavit of Support for a friend overseas who has won the diversity lottery.

In regards to questions 9 & 10 -

9. I have previously submitted affdavits of support for the following person(s)

10. I have submitted a visa petition(s) to US Citizenship and Immigration Services on behalf of the following person(s)

Yes, I have submitted and Affidavit of Support and visa Petition for my husband back in 2004 - he arrived in US 2005- and is now a US Citizen. Is this still revelant to put on the form since my husband has completed the immigration process?

As for Item 11

Is is okay to check _____ do not intent to make specific contributions to the support of the person.

I will not be making specific contribtions on a weekly or monthly basis........just when needed

Thank you.

Thank you.

Oh yes, it's still relevant. Look at the context of the question and the way they ask it, ie "Have you ever". I don't think your being honest about this will effect the affidavit, but being dishonest definitely could. Always honesty with the government. They can easily find out, if you omit it.

I'm not sure if this applies in your case, but back in 08 we had the same problem with question 11. My sister was our cosponsor and since she intended to help on an as needed basis, we checked "do not intend to make specific contributions". At the interview they would not accept the i-134. I sent an email asking what was wrong and here is the response i got:

I saw the tax return and that part is ok. However, your sister checked the "do not intend" to make specific contributions to support this person box on the I-134 form. Particularly given the geographic distance between yourself and your sister, we either need her to change her mind and send an affadavit stating how she is willing to assist your fiancé and prevent him from becoming a public charge, or have a new co-sponsor. Let us know if you have other questions.

U.S. Embassy Algiers

We had to submit a new one. My sister had to check "do intend"(or whatever the other option was) and state that she intended to support him financially, and/or provide housing and food for him on an as needed basis. Then again, there have been others in here who checked "do not intend" and have had no problems.
