8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have done research on these two forms but still im confuse, I have known that for k1 visa we use the I-134 but people also mention that the I-864 is also accepted too, but i dont know what is the difference between these two forms correct me if im wrong but the I-864 is for joint sponsor right?? So does it mean that i can add my income along with co-sponsors income on the I-864?? which one is recommended for k1 applicants with co-sponsor??

K1 petitions are supported with the I-134. Though Casablanca seems to use the I-864 and there has been mention of some use at Manila.

I 864 on this occasion will be used when adjusting the status after you get married . This form is usually filed with a completed Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status

The I-864 will be used after you are married and the foreign spouse files for adjustment of status.

For the K-1, you fill out an I-134 and your co-sponsor fills out their own separate I-134. There is no combining of incomes with the I-134. Your co-sponsor needs to have the 125% requirement for their own household size plus the beneficiary.
