I highly suggest you read the guides so that you know what you need to provide.

But yes, for the embassy interview, you will need to prepare and sign an Affidavit of Support (I-134) and with it, supporting evidence such as a letter from your employer, tax transcripts/returns, copies of pay stubs, etc.

Once you receive your NOA2, which you have, the process becomes highly country-specific. So it'll probably be a good idea to check out Brazil's regional forums to see what the process is like from here on out.

You should review the packet 3 and 4 documents that the beneficiary received. These list what must be done prior to the interview.

The financial support thingy is a part of that.

Why do you have to have IRS transcripts? Can't you send copies of our tax refunds?

You can.

You can either send all tax return forms as well as W2s, or you can request transcripts from the IRS. They essentially say the same things.

Do I need an I-864 or a I-134?

Also, how quickly does the IRS send transcripts out? It would be MUCH faster if I were to send copies of my refunds that I have here. Why would you do the transcripts versus the copied refund?

I-134 is for the I-129F petition. The I-864 is for AOS down the road.

I'm not sure how long it takes. Hopefully someone else who has ordered them can tell you. I used my husband's tax returns and W2s.

Some people choose the transcripts instead of trying to hunt down the other paperwork. It really doesn't matter.
