Can someone tell me exactly what I need for myself and my co-sponsor as far as everything such as taxes, forms ........ fill in the blank. Please make me a check list or something.

Here's my situation I have not filed taxes beyond 3 years. I'm a college student/no job. I have a co-sponsor for the sake of privacy let's assume the co-sponsor makes 6 figures...not saying that's what they make but it's well over the amount we need.

Thanks in advance. :thumbs:

Even if you have a co-sponsor, you are required to provide YOUR tax return for the past year (unless you were not legally obligated to do so, for instance, you are former military and using the GI Bill etc). Fill the i-864 Affidavit even if you are using a co-sponsor.

The co-sponsor needs to fill an I-864 affidavit form as well, include his/her tax return for the past year, and he/she may also add a letter of employment stating their salary, and pay stubs for the past 6 months. I am under the impression the co-sponsor must also provide a copy of their birth certificate/passport to establish US citizenship. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

The form instructions are a great source of information. I encourage you to read them. You will be using the I-134 affidavit of support form now.

so Anh map... r u saying that we should just read the instructions for the form?> lol very slick way of saying (read lazy ppl) lol The I-134 doesn't require the petitioner to provide tax return papers? so if one files the I-134 he or she just has to show supporting documents of income not necessary tax returns? i read it but i just want to be sure and for someone to back me up, in case they know extra info.

my fiancee's mother is my sponsor ( he is not currently working and has never had to file taxes). Aswell as filing out the I-134 she is sending me her last years tax return, letter from her employer with date employment started, annual salary and type of employment, and a few of her recent pay stubs. I'm from australia though and i THINK that it varies quite a bit from consulate to consulate in that i think some are a lot more strict and others a lot easier. hope that helps a little :)

How could you show that you have sustainable source of income for the last three years unless you use tax transcript form or tax returns form (previous 1040 or other depending on what you filed)?

Filing the tax is compliance to the law of the country. You should have to file a tax or an extension whether you have sustainable income or not. If you didn’t while you are making, that will put you in problems. I believe the instruction for I-134 says anything the number of tax returns or W-2’s to submit. It is your decision and the Embassy at Casablanca to decide on this matter. However according to most VJ members, it is much better to attach 3 years documentations of source of income.

Good luck
