Affidavit of Support for interview at embassy for K-1 visa

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

I have a question about financial support by petitioner.

It seems that petitioner must deliver an statement that the beneficiary will not be a public charge. I read that Except I-134, income tax return, and W-2 that statement is also necessary. Does anybody have experience about this? Is it really necessary ? If yes, what should be written in the statement? because I could't find any example online about this.

This is what is written in the webpage of the embassy about financial support:

Persons in the United States who desire to furnish sponsorship for an applicant in the form of an affidavit of support should use Form I-134, Affidavit of Support, available from the USCIS offices or the following web site: http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/I-134.pdf. Sponsors may also elect to furnish a statement in the form of an affidavit sworn to before a notary public or other official competent to administer an oath, setting forth his or her willingness and financial ability to contribute to the applicant’s support and reasons, in detail, for sponsoring the applicant.
The sponsor’s affidavit should include:
1. Information regarding his or her annual income;
2. Where material, information regarding his or her other resources;
3. Obligations for the support of members of his or her own family and other persons, if any;
4. Other obligations and expenses;
5. Plans and arrangements made for the applicant’s reception and support;
6. An expression of willingness to deposit a bond, if necessary, with the USCIS to guarantee that the applicant will not become a public charge in the US; and

7. An acknowledgement that the sponsor is aware of his or her responsibilities under the Social Security Act, as amended, and the Food Stamp Act, as amended; that the affidavit and supporting documentation may be made available to a public assistance agency. (The provisions of the above laws are contained in form DS-1858, Sponsor’s Financial Responsibility Under the Social Security Act, and printed in Part III of the instructions for Form (I-134)

Thanks in advance for your help
