I-129F Petition

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello guys, I'm trying to figure out what is the difference between I-129F Petition and I-864, Affidavit of Support?

Also I want to know what if I do not work (I've never work) and for instance I do not file taxes my mom does her and put me on it. I know I am going to need a Joint Sponsor. would that be a problem and would I need to make affidavit?

I-864 has nothing to do with a fiance petition.

You use a I-134 for that but only at the US embassy interview is it needed. You and the joint sponsor will have to fill out the I-134.

The I-864 is not filled out until your SO is in the USA and you have married and are filing adjustment of status.

Your I-129f was approved in 5 days from your NOA1 date.

Your interview took 67 days from your I-129F NOA1 date.

AOS was approved in 2 months and 8 days without interview.

ROC was approved in 3 months and 2 days without interview.

There's a big difference.

I-129f is a Petition for you bring your fiance to the U.S. It is the first step you complete in order to begin the process of bringing over your fiance for marriage within the U.S. You must marry within 90 days after entering the country on a K-1 visa.

I-864 or Affidavit of Support is used to show the U.S. government that you will be financially responsible for taking care of your fiance. Generally, it is used during the "Adjustment of Status" process, after marriage, while applying for your spouse's Green Card.

You will need to have a co-sponsor. You have to show the gov't you have the financial stability to emigrate your fiance.

Hei there, welcome to VJ.

You can have a co-sponsor all the way through this process, even after your fiance(e) arrives in the US. It's up to the embassy whether or not they'll accept that co-sponsor. The embassy is not forced to accept a co-sponsor but they usually do(depending on the country and situation). You will, regardless of the situation, have to fill out the sponsor information too. You will have to do that because you'll always be considered the primary sponsor. And since nobody else has addressed it, I will. Are you or your future spouse planning to get jobs? I am only asking, because this is a multiple stage process, and bringing your future spouse to the US equals supporting yourself AND your spouse financially so your foreign spouse won't become a public charge. And that's what it all boils down to. The joint sponsor signs the affidavit of support which is a contract between the sponsor and the US government.

Edit: The i129f is the first step of applying for your fiance(e) to get to the US. It's a petition. Once it's approved, it goes to the embassy, and there the foreign fiance(e) submits another load of forms which is the K1 visa application.

Great Points!

To Nathally:

Take everything we said into context. This process will long and expensive; not to mention, it will put a strain on you and your fiance(e) emotionally. So read up carefully, understand the process fully, and continue to ask questions. Best wishes on your journey.
