I am trying to fill out my I-134 Affidavit of Support in preparation of my Canadian fiance's interview in Montreal. I am a freelance theater stage manager (NOT self-employed) so I have several W2s each year from different companies, some for as little as a one-week job and others for several months. I am not sure how to properly fill out the top of page 2 of the I-134 where it says...

7. I am employed as or engaged in the business of _________ with _________ at ______________. (First blank says "Type of Business", second blank says "Name of Concern" and third blank is for address details.

I have no one single address where I work. It changes often. Should I put "various locations" and leave the address blank? Should I put "N/A" for any of it? Should I just put in my most recent employer even though my job there has been completed? I am currently between projects so I'm not working on anything at the moment.

As far as accompanying documents, I have a copy of my tax return, but how many W2s and bank statements should I also copy? All of them for the last year?

Do you have any one main employer? You could use that one, or you can put 'See attachment' and add a separate sheet to explain and list the companies that employ you.

Most recent tax return with all forms, schedules, W-2s and/or 1099s, plus recent pay stubs, or last 6-12 months of bank statements to show the actual income amounts that were deposited to you. You can also supply the tax transcripts for the previous 2 years, if you believe it will help prove your stable, ongoing income.

My USC husband is an actor in the same situation as you. We put something like "actor", "self-employed" in those blanks, and provided the extra proof required: tax transcripts for 3 years and all W2s for the most recent year. We also put range in for his yearly income, since it varies from year to year.

i suggest attachment sheets , and in the one line, write in 'see attachment' and then explain all.

as to 'which w-2' - show all. or get a tax transcript from the irs, where all will be listed.

Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
