Is my financial evidence for the I-134 OK?

Hello all,

We have our interview in a 1 month and a half. We have everything ready, but just wanted to double check because the financial information that we will present will be not exactly what it asks for.

My mother and I will be both co-sponsoring (she earns more and I am doing a start up business and didn't earn a lot last year)

Are there any issues with these points:

1. We have Bank of America statements, but they aren't signed by an official. They are sent from customer service and end with "Sincerely, Bank of America"

2. For some reason Bank of America didn't send me the deposits over the year on the letter, but a stack of statements from the year. Can I present that?

3. My mother's supervisor gave a letter that has hourly rate and year to date income (January to April). There is no yearly salary, but one could easily get an approximate number with that information.

4. My mother has another Chase account but she doesn't want to put in that information. Can we just write the information from Bank of America?

If you know information about any of the above points. We have asked for these statements several times, but its hard to get people to follow directions exactly, so I'm hoping we don't have to ask again.

You each need to supply your own I-134, most recent tax transcript, letter from employer and/or recent pay stubs. If you are not an employee, then skip the employer letter and possibly pay stubs as well.

The co-sponsor must qualify on their own. They need enough income for their own household size plus the intending immigrant.

If you meet the income requirement, then no need to list assets or provide proof of them.


The petitioner may fill out an Affidavit of Support, Form I-134 . You may download this form from USCIS webpage. The sponsor must attach proof of his/her income such as: copy of last U.S. Federal Income Tax (form 1040), proof of current employment, job offer, pay-slip, etc. One form is sufficient for all family members. You may present your own means of support.
