Poverty guidelines K1 Visa i134


3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

I know I need to update my timeline but my fiance and I received our info packet from the Belgian Consulate!!! YEA!!!

My question is about people's prior experience with the i134. Do they look at if you're making at least 100% of the poverty guidelines income for your state (OR is $15,510 for a 2 person family)? My income gross currently is upwards of $21,000. I don't have any kids and neither does my fiance, so I'll only be supporting the two of us. Does anyone know what the minimum income is they look for? I've heard 100% but also 110% and 115%...

So I'm a little confused and worried I won't make enough to be approved by myself and I really don't have a sponsor?

Any encouragement or thoughts would be appreciated! :)

For a K-1 visa, they typically want to see 125% of the poverty level. This is the same as for the I-864 which you will be filing when adjusting status.
