Hello Everyone,

I need advise. My fiancé will BE INTERVIEW NEXT WEEK for the K1-VISA. We have been reading posts where ppl have been ask for the I-864 Affidavit of support instead of the I-134 affidavit of support. MY fiancé received a list of things he needs to bring to his interview. They have listed the I-134 form. Just wondering why they would ask for the I-864 instead. What is the difference? I'm worried because it takes 3days to FedEx something to Morocco. Also can someone tell us WHAT ARE THE CHANCES TO GET THIS VISA WITH ONE VISIT ONLY? We have all our proofs of this one time visit.

We will appreciate your comments and advise.

Thanks,

Ludyous

I-134 is none-binding and required for K1. I 864 IS binding and is required only for AOS or CR1. For K1 they do not require I-864. However, I brought it for the interview as well just in case. Not a single embassy would ask for it though.

Good luck to you. My fiance is in Morocco too and we only need the I-134 for our K1 visa. His interview will be later in July. We have only met each other in person once as well (last year, for 17 days).

I found this answer posted in a previous question similar to yours: "The I-864 is a legally binding contract that the sponsor will be financially responsible for the immigrant in the event the immigrant attempts to benefit from certain federal aid programs. This form is filed at the Adjusment of Status part of the journey (after the Non-USC has travelled to the States and you two get married). I believe the new forms do not need to be notarized (check this) as they are already legally binding."

Hello all

We are having similar concerns. I started out using the I-134 affidavit of support but this form expired on May 30, 2011. I sent him the I-864. I believe the I-864 is the updated version of the affidavit of support. When I went to the USCIS official website the I-864 is the only affidavit form available. Do they still use the I-134?

Just I-134 is only necessary at this stage and later on you will need to file I-864. Good Luck on the interview.

hello there...

i will tell you what i know. we just got our approval 2 days ago in casablanca and during my fiances interview they took our I-864. and i see now on the list of possible reasons for them giving you a delay/denial or a 221-G form like we got for not having his police certificate....I SEE ON IT THAT YOU NEED "AFFIDAVIT OF SUPPORT FROM SPONSOR: A ORIGINAL SIGNED 1-864 FROM SPONSOR.

COPIES OF SPONSERS MOST RECENT TAXES (form 1040) see i-864 instructions

so this is direct paperwork that we got during his interview

TAKE BOTH 1-134 and i-864!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

we needed to get the police certificate and then we got approved.

I-864 is not the updated version of the I-134. They are 2 different forms. You can find the I-134 here: http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.5af9bb95919f35e66f614176543f6d1a/?vgnextoid=fe3647a55773d010VgnVCM10000048f3d6a1RCRD&vgnextchannel=db029c7755cb9010VgnVCM10000045f3d6a1RCRD

All consulates are different in their rules, but most of them use the I-134. After getting a K-1 approved, and marrying in the US, you will then file for AOS, at which time you will need the I-864.
