I-134 Co-sponsor

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello! Sorry if I am posting this in the wrong place :oops: but I am new to this forum! My partner and I have just begun the K1 visa process but are trying to plan ahead and believe that will we be using a co-sponsor for the I-134 as he is a recent graduate. Does this mean both my partner and the co-sponsor fill out a separate I-134 each for us to submit? We have a long road ahead of us but just want to be prepared as possible :idea:

Thanks in advance for your help and advice!

Each consulate does their own thing when it comes to being satisfied that the beneficiary will not become a public charge. LONDON will accept a sponsor other than the fiancé, meaning only an I-134 from that person and not the fiancé. They have done this on a number of occasions over the years. The most recent one I read here in the UK forum said they were asked if they had a new letter of intent. I guess maybe they wanted to be sure the fiancé was still in the game since he didn't provide an affidavit of support. So maybe plan to have a letter of intent in your pocket in case you get that officer. That's the only time I have read that happening.

If your fiancé gets a job before your interview, he can sponsor. He only needs a letter from his employer. He doesn't need a tax return showing sufficient income. London will approve without any tax returns. They have approved a couple recently without looking at any income documentation, but I wouldn't count on that happening on every case.

Hi Nich-Nick

Thank you for your reply, it was extremely informative! I can't see any reason why he wouldn't get a job in the meantime but we are just trying to cover all of our bases! Thanks again for your help!
