Supporting Documents for I-134 from Sponsor?

Hey everyone! Hope you folks are doing fabulous today :dancing:

Myself and my fiancee are going to require a sponsor to complete our application. The Packet we received from Montreal indicates that he needs to fill out an I-134 and provide all supporting documents.

We know that the sponsor we are using (the American citizen's father) owns several properties and has a certain amount saved in the bank, and residual income from the properties.

What types of supporting documents would be required in this case?

Thanks everyone :) You guys are the best and I wouldn't have been able to do this without you. <3

Does he need to provide assets to meet the income requirement? If he has enough income alone, then he does not need to list assets at all, so no need to bother providing proof of the savings and property value.

If he does need to use them, then bank statements for the savings, and an appraisal of the property value plus any documentation showing any liens against it in order to get its net value. He can provide separate documentation of the rental income he receives, and it should be on his tax returns as well.

Thank you so much. I've forwarded that to him ... that's pretty much everything I needed. If we have additional questions I might send you a message. Thanks again :)

Hi KayDeeCee,

I've determined that there's one house worth roughly $80K, $18K in income from my American Fiancee, and $11K in income from her father. Combined, will this be enough? I'm asking because I know that neither the American Citizen or the sponsor are over the Poverty Line, so I just wanted to double-check if this was okay since it was combined (both of them together make 29K, plus the house, equals 109K).

Thanks :)

There is no combining of incomes for the I-134. The USC petitioner will fill out an I-134, even if they do not meet the requirement. A co-sponsor will fill out their own separate I-134. They must meet the requirement for their own household size plus the foreign fiance(e). If your co-sponsor does not meet the requirement, then you will need to find a co-sponsor that does.

Okay, thank you. So in this case, where the co-sponsor is underneath the income but also has sufficient assets, do they still technically not qualify?

You're the best, thank you so much for your help. :)

The co-sponsor will need 5 times the amount they are short on income when using assets to make up the difference.

Okay, thank you. Is there a document anywhere from the USCIS that discusses this? So far as I can see, the deficit is $9,662 ... with the house being $90K (again, a rough estimate) it seems we are well over that limit, and therefore should be in the clear.

I think I should probably start a new thread about this. :) Thank you again for all your help.

The I-134 instructions do not have details about assets. Read the I-864 instructions. Those are the guidelines that many consulates follow for the I-134 at the K-1 interview. Use of assets is on page 7.
