I-134 & Joint Sponsor

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

When I declare my income for the I-134 form for the K1 Visa, I believe I will run into problems. I know I need to include W2's/Tax Returns/ect for the past 3 years; but the problem is that 2012-13 I was deployed so all the money I made was nontaxable income (making it appear as if I had made almost nothing for the whole year). Now I am National Guard and that W2 alone doesn't cover the 125% poverty, and I am, and have been since I came home, a full time student, leaving me with no "Job Letter."

My GI Bill, school grants, BHA, National Guard checks and Disability (from deployment injuries) make up my income to which I have an ample amount to live off of. None of these except the NG checks can be taxed making the others unable to be claimed as income; and so because of all of this I appear to not be able to even support myself let alone my fiance.

Is this going to essentially require me to have a Joint Sponsor?

Also, if it matters much, I have quite a bit in savings (I don't know if there is an amount that clears me of this trouble of lack of income), a substantial amount more in assets, and even more in life insurance (I only add that here because of the slot it has on the form).

Thanks in advance!

It isn't taxable income that is evaluated, it is income. If you meet the income level you are ok.
