I-864 vs. I-134

Filed: AOS (apr) Country: South Africa

I recently received Packet 3 from the Consulate in Johannesburg. It has extensive information pertaining to the I-864 and family based petitions. It only has one line about I-134 needed K1 visas. Does this mean I need to submit both applications? My parents will be the co-sponsor, so they would need to fill out both too? PLEASE HELP!

The I-134 is used for K-1 visas. You need to choose a parent. Only one co-sponsor can be used with the I-134. They will fill out their own separate form and need to have enough to meet the 125% income requirement for their own household size plus the foreign fiance(e). Besides the financial documents (most recent tax transcript, letter from employer and most recent pay stubs), they also need to provide proof of being a USC or LPR.

Very few consulates accept the I-864 for co-sponsors. You can always contact the consulate directly and ask them which affidavit of support is used with a co-sponsor for a K-1 visa applicant just to make absolutely sure.
