I-134 Co-Sponsor.

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hello all. first i would like to say this is an amazing site, helped me a lot and i am indept to each contribution that was made here.

i am filing for my fiancee K1 visa. the interview is in about a month and all i am missing is the i-134. Since i am unemployed and cant support my fiancee i choose my brother to be my Co-sponsor. I am doing two(2) I-134 forms, one in my name and the other is in my co-sponsor name. most of the information i was able to gather from other posts about co-sponsoring.

My questions are :

- which name should my co-sponsor put in #3? is it my name(US citizen) or my fiancee name(foreign)?

- in #8 of my(us citizen) i-134, should i add my fiancee name as wholly or partially dependent on me? or just put NONE?

those are the last things i need to do before filing the papers to the embassy. thank you all in advance.

Not 100% on number 3, but it should be your fiances' name. They're doing it on the behalf of the beneficiary, as they are the person that the co-sponsor would be sponsoring.

As for number 8, those are only for CURRENT dependents, like children or family members that you financially support. That's why it says the following people ARE dependent upon me for support instead of the following people WILL BE dependent upon me for support.

The foreign fiance(e) that is being sponsored is listed in #3, no matter if it is the USC petitioner or a co-sponsor filling out the form. They are still filing it to sponsor the foreign fiance(e).

#8 is for listing your dependents, not your fiance(e). They were listed in #3. If the person filling out the form has any dependents, such as children, then they list them there.
