Affidavit of Support (I-134 form)

Hi guys i have a lot of questions regarding the I-134 form. Please clarify everything for me, so i get my fiance here very soon.

here are my questions:

1. I am a full time student, and i have a part time job. Last year I made 10000$, i still have the same job and i get school loans.

Since the 2011 Federal Guidelines Poverty for 1 person is 18500$ i do not qualify, this is why i need to find a co-sponsor.

My sponsor's income for 2010 is $24,172. He lives with his wife and has 1 child. Therefore his household consists of 3 person.

Therefore when i look at 2011 poverty guidelines table i look at 125% for 5 people. [3 people in co-sponsor's household + 1 (myself) + 1 (my fiance)] when i look at poverty guidelines is $32,238. IF THAT's the case then it would WORK right?

OR MY CO-sponsor needs to satisfy to poverty guidelines ALONE BY HIMSELF? If that's the case HE IS not qualified and i need to find another sposnor...His income is $24172 where the poverty guidlines for 3 people are $27,563.

So which one of these options are TRUE?

and here is my second question:

2. What if I will find another job, let's say tomorrow, and I will get paid 2000$-$3000 a month, which mean 24000$-$36000 a year, i live alone, therefore i will meet a poverty guidelines Requirement.

In the close future, i will need to send the I-134 form, filled by myself, and stating my INCOME that i will make in the future, AND my employer can give me a letter as needed. What about the proof of this income? what would work? Tax Returns wouldn't work because i JUST start a job, and i didn't file a tax returns for last year, WOULD 1 or 2 paystubs work?

Thank you,

Murad Minasyan

You're looking at last year's poverty guidelines. Download the current I-864P.

http://www.uscis.gov/i-864p

Your co-sponsor must qualify on his own. Your income isn't included. You're also not included in his household size unless you live with him. Sounds like you need a more qualified co-sponsor.

When you fill out the I-134 you must estimate your annualized income based on your current income. For example, the amount you are currently paid each week multiplied by 52. If your income is erratic, and changes from week to week, then you can take the average over time. What you can't do is fluff up your estimate with increased income you expect to receive in the future. The only time I've seen a consulate accept a sponsor's claim that their future income would be better than their current income is when their work was seasonal, and they had tax returns to back up their claim that their income was better in the latter part of the year.

Some consulates don't accept co-sponsors for K visas. Some only accept them in certain situations. What consulate will your fiancee be interviewing at?

RUSSIAN CONSULATE

GUYS, I my case just got updated!!the application got ACCEPTED! YAHOO!

I'm really worried though. SHOULD I FIND ANOTHER CO-SPONSOR if I'm going to start a new job that pays $2000-$3000 a month, which is 24000-36000$ annually. OR I SHOULD FILL I-134 FORM BY MYSELF, include the letter from my employer, and 1-2 pay stubs from this new work? WOULD THAT WORK WITHOUT A CO-SPONSOR?

I WANT HER TO COME HERe, i don't want the application denied!!

Please give me some advices.

THANK YOU!
