I-129F Fiance's Visa and I-846

Good Morning All,

I met my girlfriend over a year ago and now we wish too get married I am from the UK and she's American due to her having kids it makes more sense for me too go to the USA to live etc I have some questions i really could do with some guidance and help as im really stuck now

I am told that i need to complete I-129F Fiance's Visa? I have most the documents i require for the application too go through but i am stuck on the forms can anyone confirm i only need to send in I-129F to start with I was told i needed G-325A and G-1145 too but im not sure, and finally I-846 form for Affidavit of Support this has really got me stuck ive tried to call the immigration service too ask questions but they are too rude too help or give me any real help.

Any help would be greatly appreciated on the following questions

1) Can the sponsor be a friend of the family?

2) My fiancee is under the poverty level so she can't support me myself can i help support stay?

3) Can a member of the family help sponsor me if they have a criminal background?

4) If my fiance cant support me as a sponsor can a non family member sponsor me on there own?

5) my wife earns enough for us both too live on easily however not enough for the poverty level so even though i need a sponsor i would not be going to them for financial gain is there any place i can find a sponsor if my fiance cant get one at all inside the family or friends?

any help would be so welcome im worrying now that we can't get married and will never be together like we want too be and its a horrible thought

regards

David White

Welcome David!

Have no fear, I am from the UK as well and just about to send off the I-129F petition form real soon!

First of all, you only need to send ONE I-129F form as it is about you and your fiancee, the G-1145 is a notification form to recieve updates from either email or text (personally I would allow all notifications to be sent to your US fiancee) so you only need to send one version.

The G-325A however you need to do one and your US fiancee needs to do one because it is a more in depth report about your lives.

As for the I-846 forms, you DO NOT need to send those when filing the I-129F, that will come when your fiancee will recieve the NOA2.

For more information I always use this as a guide tool:

I hope this helps!! :thumbs:

Thank you so much thats great too hear.....

I am just waiting on some final documents then will send the I-129F and G-1145 and G-325A at the same time then so thats a relief :) on some of the forms i noticed it says something about an A reference im guessing that is something they issue and not something we have too know or apply for am i right?

Best Regards

To clarify, the I-134 comes at the embassy/interview stage. The I-864 comes after the K1 visa and marriage, for adjustment of status purposes. Similar forms, in that they're both affidavits of support, but important to notice the differences and when each form comes into play.

Thank you so I-134 is after the petition goes in and i am guessing the sponsor in the USA will need to be in play for that or is that just to show mine and my fiance's income sorry if i seem completely thick about this it scares me silly all these forms and things thank you david

No worries. Please take the time to read the guides and the flowchart. They can be a lifesaver for someone attempting to understand the process. :)

Your fiancee needs to sponsor you. She will need to fill out the I-134 and provide proof of income such as tax returns, pay stubs, etc. Even if she does NOT make enough to sponsor you, she will have to fill this out. If she meets the requirements (they vary based on household size) then that's all she needs. If she doesn't meet the requirements, then a co-sponsor (who will also need to be a USC) who does meet them will then have to fill one out as well, providing the same kind of supporting evidence.

As the beneficiary, your income does not matter.

And yes, this will all be at the embassy/interview stage.

Does she have and close family members? A mother, father, siblings, aunts, uncles etc. are all candidates for cosponsoring.

absolutely no one sadly she doesnt have no contact with any of the listed and the only friends shes got are not eligable due to themselves being under the poverty margin

She is the one who needs to complete I-129F, she needs to sign it not you.

Could she get a second job to make up the shortfall in her earnings?

Assuming she will sponsor you for both the I-134 and the I-864 stages of this process, have her read the Sponsor's Contract portion of the I-864 Affidavit of Support (Part 8): http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-864.pdf

The I-864 is the legally binding document, so it's key she understands it.

I just read the Part 8 obligations does that mean my sponsor has too provide me with monies above the poverty line? or does that mean if i require support from them during my process they are too help me the reason i ask is because i will have some savings already to help me along the way thanks and regards david
