What to Include with Affidavit of Support

I wish to get some clarification on what supporting documents we should be including in the Affidavit of Support. My fiance (the petitioner) makes well above the required amount. So our supporting documents for the Affidavit looks like this:

- I-134 signed and dated.

- Tax transcripts from the IRS for past 3 years, (1040, W2, and 1099).

- Letter from employer stating starting date, annual salary, full-time/permanent, signed and dated by manager.

- Recent pay stubs will be presented closer to interview date.

We're a little bit confused about a couple of things. 1) Given that the income is above the poverty line, do we still have to include bank statements? 2) Does the Affidavit have to be notorized?

Thanks.

Thanks, san diego!

Okay, I have another question regarding the transcripts now. Apparently we cannot get a hold of the W-2/1099 for 2010 because the IRS' form says the W-2/1099 won't be available until 2012? Does this sound right or am I getting something mixed up? And if we can't get a hold of the W-2/1099 for 2010, how do we get it and do we even need it?

The exact wording from the IRS' form is below:

Form W-2, Form 1099 series, Form 1098 series, or Form 5498 series transcript. The IRS can provide a transcript that includes data from these information returns. State or local information is not included with the Form W-2 information. The IRS may be able to provide this transcript information for up to 10 years. Information for the current year is generally not available until the year after it is filed with the IRS. For example, W-2 information for 2007, filed in 2008, will not be available from the IRS until 2009. If you need W-2 information for retirement purposes, you should contact the Social Security Administration at 1-800-772-1213. Most requests will be processed within 45 days

I appreciate the help and patience.

This is strange.. In any case, you do not need W2 as long as you have transcript. You need:

1) 2010 IRS transcript

2) latest paystub

3) I134 original signed.

4) Letter from employer

What I listed is sufficient as long as you meet 125% poverty requirement.

we took everything you (the OP) listed above.

if you have the tax transcripts (each year is about 10-15 pages or so, double sided), you don't need the other tax related documents you mentioned.

we are well above minimum income requirements but we had bank statements done anyways. they took them at our interview. to get them, it took about 2 days, and there was a small fee for each letter (10-20 dollars or so).

it seems you have some time before your interview, why not make sure you have the bank statements to avoid any kind of preventable delay in terms of getting the visa once you reach the interview.

make sure you make a photocopy of all documents, and don't give them the originals at the interview, as some of them (ie the tax transcripts) you will need again for AOS

good luck with everything and congrats on the noa2.

No bank statements or any information related to assets is needed at all if you meet the income requirements.

Nothing in the normal K-1 visa process should be notarized.
