I-134, Affidavit of Support

Hello I'm a bit confused and want to make sure I don't cause any delays in our K1 by not following instructions properly. I could use some friendly advise.

In the K1 instructions received from the consulate they ask for evidence of financial support by submitting an I-134. After that they ask you for a certified copy of your federal tax returns.

In the instructions for the I-134 it states "Evidence should consist of any or all of the following documentation listed below that are applicable to your situation." It then goes on to mention that I need written statements from my bank and employer.

Is all of that necessary if I'm already giving them a copy or transcript of my tax return?

I would highly recommend getting everything they ask for, only because they could ask for it at your interview and if you dont have it can cause a delay in your case. Presenting too much is better than too little, whatever they dont want, they will just give back to you.

You need the bank letter and employer letter, tax returns are recommended only if you are self-employed. You need to give them everything they ask for, better to be safe than sorry and not have what they want!

yeah i'm confused about this too. they only said that the tax return is needed when one's self-employed. but then i read the posts here it seems that it's a must...

The form is the place you should take your instructions from. I've gotten the impression that some Embassy's may ask for tax returns, but as far as the form goes you only need to submit the bank letter and employer letter (What is the fourth thing, bonds or something? If you don't have them then you obviously can't submit that evidence). You can send in your taxes but like the form says, they're only asked for if you are self-employed, so you could just be making extra work for yourself. It's at your discretion as long as your Embassy doesn't ask for them.

Thanks for your advice. From what everyone has said I think I will play it safe and send everything.

A lot of misinformation here. You do not need anything other than the employment letter if you are qualifying based on your income alone! To compute your support - you need to meet 125% of poverty guidelines http://aspe.os.dhhs.gov/poverty/06poverty.shtml. If you meet it do not submit any other info on banks. stocks and bonds etc. - you only need to do it if you are trying to qualify based on your assets (do not have enough income but are rich.) Many consulates ask for tax returns - so the packet 3 that your fiance/e receives will spell that out. (Though it is true that each consulate determines what income level is appropriate - the 125% of poverty guidelines is what you have to meet for AOS (Green card) later on and is a good measure to check yourself against now to determine if you need to get a co-sponsor. Good Luck

If you want a K-1 fiancee visa to be together with your fiancee I would given them what they ask. Just because they ask for it might not mean they will look at it but would you like to take that chance. If you do not care then given them what you want! :angry:

Hey the packet 3 i got DIDNT mention anything about the tax return (they just said that i need to bring the I-134 and supporting evidence). Then when i called and asked them, the staff said she can't tell. it depends on whether i think that the document is useful or not. ???

Exactly!! Because the I-134 is only one thing that a Conof looks at when making a decision as to whether the applicant will be become a public charge.

It really isn't that hard to get all that.. If you can't get a letter from the bank guy, you can give statements or such. The employment letter is a must.. and if you want to get 3 years of taxes, it isnt that hard to do. They accept transcripts.. call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040 its an automated system that will send you the transcripts after 10-15 days. you can go back up to 3 years.

Do you have any pay stubs? I've been saing mine since i applyed...i sent them all.

Read the instructions for the I-134. If the petitioner is self employed then they need a copy of the last income tax return filed.
