Co sponsor question

I have my interview in 2 weeks and while I have all my affidavit of support and tax returns from my fiance his parents are co sponsoring us just in case of any problems. Anyway my question is they file their tax return jointly so just to be sure I have the affidavit filled in by both of them. I ahve been reading the interview reviews and noticed a couple of people mention birth certificates of co sponsored are needed. Is this true? If I need a copy of this I will have to get it sent over this week and also do I need a copy of my fiances birth certificate or passport? Everyday I am thinking of more and more things and fretting that I am missing something.

Thanks so much :)

If you read that in the interview review of others, probably the embassy at UK may requires to have those documents. You can find out by calling or emailing the embassy. I think it is better to have them in hand in case if you required showing them during the interview.

Good luck

You'll get better answers if you ask embassy questions in the UK forum. Your fiance's birth certificate is already in your file. They know he's a USC or he couldn't petitioned you. I don't recall any K1s getting called out for failure to prove the co-sponsor's citizenship, but I always suggest it as a good thing to have. A Brit can self sponsor if he has enough assets without any I-134, so it's not super strict about who provides the support. This is different for CR1 applicants which do an I-864. You'll do that for AOS and will provide the BC or US passport of the co-sponsor.

London doesn't even require a tax return with the I-134. Do you have other proof's of the Dad's income showing only his income is enough? Does he have a W-2 form that shows his portion of the joint tax return? I don't think separate I-134s from each parent sounds quite right just because of a joint tax return. Go with one or the other and prove that person's income with a W2, employer letter, or about 3 month's payslips. London isn't real picky if you show them a proof.

PS. don't even think about calling or emailing the embassy as suggested above to answer your question. They charge per minute and give bad information or none.

Any person completing an affidavit of support needs to prove that they are a US citizen or Green Card holder. A US birth certificate is one form of proof. The biographic page from a US passport is another form of proof.
