I-134 Affidavit of Support

Timeline

The I-134 is required for the K1 Visa at first. Meaning after the I-129F is approved, then to NVC, then to Consulate. When the beneficiary applies for K1, it is required for the interview. THEN, once the beneficiary enters US and married, you apply for adjustment of status and the I-864 is required. See the links on my signature for K1 AOS and you will see what is required once married and filing for AOS.

I also have the 2011 poverty guidelines as a link also.

A co-sponsor is usually required if the petitioner does not meet the requirements and usually allowed.

However, I have read many posts from the Philippines and they state that the consulate in the Philippines typicaly does not accept co-sponsors for K1 petitioners. Maybe someone from the Philippines will respond with the specific requirements for this country.

Good Luck with your journey

Can another person other than the petitioner fill out the I-134?

No the petitioner must submit an I-134 regardless of no income or not meeting the income. They are the petitioner and main sponsor.

If they do not meet the poverty guideline then they need a co-sponsor but the Phils does not accept them for K-1 generally.

it depends on the PI consulate policy if they will allow a second person to submit an additional I134...

Inky has also stated what I have read many times. In general the Consulate in the Philippines does not allow a co-sponsor for the K1 process.

Maybe there is a loophole or something specific that hopefully someone who has gone through the Philippines can attest to, but I have not heard nor read of any.

Theres someone who was on VJ that was able to use his father as a co-sponsor for the K-1 he filed for his wife through the Phils. He was successful but they almost didn't make it they said.

Quick question.. You mean K1 for his fiance then now wife?? Or it was his wife and it was a K3? Just wondering...

OP, have you tried emailing the Consulate with this question? It would not hurt to do so. You may want to identify yourself as the petitioner as I have heard that the consulate there does not respond to general questions via email unless case specific... (just what I have heard)

There is no definitive yes or no on the 1-134 co-sponsor. It is the totality of circumstances in assessing the credibility of petitioner and/or joint sponsorships.

If the petitioner is recent graduate or soon to be, with high earning potential with a cosponsor such as mother/father the I-134 my get approved. But if he just someone who has no job or assets it will most likely be denied.

There is no definitive yes or no on the 1-134 co-sponsor. It is the totality of circumstances in assessing the credibility of petitioner and joint sponsorships. Case by Case.

Reference: Fiancé(e) Visa Information

Date: April 24, 2009

This is in reply to your inquiry of April 24, 2009, regarding your visa concerns.

Petitioners in fiancé(e) (K1) nonimmigrant visa cases are generally expected to provide the adequacy of their own financial resources to ensure that an alien, after admission into the United States, will not become primarily dependent on the US Government for subsistence. While our immigration law does not disallow joint sponsorships for K nonimmigrant visa applicants, the mere submission of an I-134 Affidavit of Support from joint sponsors is not sufficient to establish that the alien is not likely to become a public charge. Accordingly, we make a thorough evaluation of other factors, such as the sponsor’s motives in submitting the Form I-134, the sponsor’s relationship to the applicant or petitioner, the length of time the sponsor and applicant have known each other, etc. An I-134 Affidavit of Support submitted by a casual friend or distant relative who has little or no personal knowledge of the applicant has limited value. Unlike the I-864 filed by joint sponsors in immigrant visa cases, the I-134 is not legally binding and imposes no legal obligation on the joint sponsor to make good on his or her promises. Please be assured that we look at the totality of circumstances in assessing the credibility of joint sponsorships.

For information about financial sponsorship guidelines, you may visit the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) website at http://www.uscis.gov.

Information regarding fiancé(e) and immigrant visa petitions may be found at our website at http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/ty...types_1315.html or http://manila.usembassy.gov/wwwh3204.html.

Please direct future fiancé(e) and immigrant visa inquiries to this web link: http://manila.usembassy.gov/wwwh3230.html.

We hope this information is helpful to you.

How close to the poverty guideline seems to pass? Lets say a person makes $200 over the %125.

I have seen people from various countrys denied for being 200$ to 1000$ over the poverty limit. Not sure what constitutes them making a choice to deny the I-134 for that..

A friend of mine submitted an I-134 and an I-864 to the USEM in a K-1 case this past August...and the U.S. Embassy Manila accepted both! His fiancée's visa was approved.

There have been lots of K-1 cases here on VJ where the cosponsor's I-134 was accepted by the USEM.
