How a cosponsor fills out the I-134?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Briefly here's my situation. I'm the U.S. citizen and petitioner. I've lived outside the U.S. for the last two and half years and just came back this year. I'm a new scuba diving instructor that free-lances with one dive shop and I've just signed as a contractor with another center. In both shops I'm technically self employed. So I can't get that letter that says I've been employed for so long with an annual salary of... I'm going to ask my brother to be a cosponsor for us. So I'm wondering how he fills out the affidavit.
Particularly for Questions 3, 8, 11

3. This affidavit is executed on behalf of the following person:

Does this need to be my fiance's information or mine?

8. The following persons are dependent upon me for support [check box for wholly or partially dependent]

My brother lives alone. He has no kids or any dependants. Does this question refer to his household or me?

11. I intend / do not intend to make specific contributions to the support of the person(s) name in item 3

On the example form it says: N/A (K1 visa process for permanent residence). Should I put the same thing?

The foreign fiance(e) is the one being sponsored. They would be listed in #3 on both the USC petitioner's and co-sponsor's I-134.

If they have no dependents, then they would put None, unless they claim you on their taxes. If you have no dependents, then you also put None there on your I-134.

Yes, that is the correct answer for #11 because a K-1 has immigrant intent, therefore that part is not applicable for a K-1 visa.

3. Your fiancée goes here

8. If no dependents then you write NONE

11. This question does not apply for K-1 visas. The best answer is leave it blank and write N/A K-1 VISA PROCESS.
