I-129F Income Requirement Question

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello again guys, Sorry for the two topics I've posted in a hurry, I just need to get this other question out about my income requirement.

My salary is $28,800 a year, and I've only got this job this month, and hadn't had any jobs in the last 2 years so I don't have any filed taxes during those years, what kind of papers or requirements would I need to be able to show that I can support my fiance once she gets here?

"I've read some articles online and I think that I cannot file for an affidavit of support because my fiance is in the Philippines and I think that they don't allow affidavit of support on their consulate."

Pretty sure the requirements where just two pay stubs, a copy of your bank statement and then to ADD for extra help your W2 if you have one, a letter from an employer, and/or a statement from a banker saying how much you've deposited over the past year and how long you've had the bank.
That ontop of what you put on the support form (how much cash you have on you, assets, etc), should be good enough as long as it's only going to be you and your future wife or husband.

If anything you might just be asked to get a co-signer if they feel that you recieved the job so recently.

As for not needing an affidavit of support in the Philippines, I don't know.

The I-129F petition has no income requirements. You need to supply the I-134 affidavit of support for the K-1 visa interview at the US consulate abroad.

EVIDENCE OF SUPPORT. You should be able to demonstrate that you will not become a public charge or burden on the U.S. taxpayers for financial support. A completed I-134 Affidavit of Support Form may be useful to the consular officer to evaluate your petitioner’s ability to be financially responsible for you. You may also be asked to submit your petitioner’s most recent U.S. Federal income tax return (Form 1040) and wage statements (Form W-2). Employment letters stating salaries and bank statements may be included to substantiate the I-134. Download Form I-134 at http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis.
