I-134 Form

Hey guys,

I was wondering, my application has just been sent off to the Australian Embassy and I've received my NOA2 hardcopy by mail already. Am I expecting another letter from NVC or the Consulate for the I-134 form to show the financial responsibility? Does that letter come soon?

It says to follow the directions on the NOA2 form, but there really are no directions. It doesn't tell me what my next step in this process is. So I'm wondering, what happens next after getting the NOA2 hard copy on the US Citizen side? I know my fiance will get his packet with instructions. Will I get another packet?

And do we send the I-134 to my fiance so he can take it with him to the interview or do we send him a copy of everything required in the I-134?

Thanks, hope I didn't confuse too many.

serendipitous,

If you've received your petition approval notice and the notice from the NVC that your petition has been forwarded to the consulate, then you will receive nothing more. Your work as petitioner is done.

It's your husband who must apply for his visa, and as you are aware he will get a packet of instructions on how to do that from the consulate. The packet will include information on what he needs to do to meet the public charge provisions of the law. If he needs a sponsor in order to do that, he will contact you! The consulate will not, they will deal with your fiance - it's his visa application.

Yay, thanks for the very very quick response!!

So, not everyone is required to have a I-134 Affidavit of Support form to take with them to the interviews? Only if it's required in the packet of instructions that he gets from the consulate?

I thought we all had to fill out those forms though... Does it specifically say if he needs to or not in his packet or does he have to figure that out from like certain criteria?

:) Thanks for clearing that part up, now i'm just confused about this new info.. lol I was under the impression that we all fill out an I-134 for our SO to take to the interview.

serendipitous,

You have that impression for a good reason. The facts are that a non-immigrant visa applicant only needs a sponsor if they do not have sufficient financial resources of their own. And if they do need a sponsor, use of I-134 is optional at the discretion of the consular officer.

As a practical matter, virtually all K-visa applicants cannot meet the public charge provisions of the law without a sponsor, and in K-visa cases consular officers always require an I-134 from the sponsor.

It's rare to find a K-visa applicant who doesn't need sponsorship, although there have been a few on VJ from the UK, and it's rarer still to find a sponsor who wasn't required to provide and I-134. Hence, most people think these are requirements.

So, how much money does your fiance have lying around? Enough to support himself for, say, 6 months to a year? (Just pulling those numbers out of the air for the sake of the discussion.)

Ohh, that makes sense.

No he won't have enough for 6months to a year that's for sure. We kinda blew all his money when he came over to visit over christmas break lol. So, I'm guessing that I should get my stepdad to start collecting evidence of his financial stability now. So after we've collected all this information to prove that my stepdad is financially stable (I'm a full time college kid, and I'm about to graduate but I do have a job in place for August with an accounting firm so I have no assets or money right now to be his sponsor) we send all this evidence and stuff to my fiance in Australia correct? So that he can take this with him to the interview.

I hope I'm finally getting this straight. All thanks to you!!

Okay, I have another question.

If I don't meet the requirements for 125% above poverty, I know I need a co-sponsor. I get that.

What I don't know the answer to, and what no one else I've asked before was able to answer is:

1. Do I fill out a I-134 form AS WELL as my co-sponsor(my stepdad)

2. Or is it okay to JUST have my stepdad fill out I-134 and send that information through.

3. Or am I suppose to fill out I-134 and my stepdad fills out I-864 so that it shows hes my joint sponsor?!

Thanks, sorry if i'm getting too annoying with the questions.

serendipitus,

2 should be OK, but there isn't a lot of anecdotal evidence available except for a few tales from the UK so it would be prudent to do 1 so that your fiance will have your information in his back pocket should he be asked for it.

3 is definitely out, the I-864 is for immigrant visas and adjustment of status, not non-immigrant visas.

If you haven't already - you might find the embassy reviews interesting. Embassy Info above and your fiancé's country. Usually you'll find VJ'ers reviews of the embassy and tales about the interview. For what it's worth.. =)

Since I'm still in school and I was offered a job with an accounting firm starting in August after I graduate, should I include that offer letter? It's on the firm's stationary and states that it will a full time position as well as disclosing my future salary.

Or is that not reputable as a backup evidence?

Other than that, I really have no assets, or real cash in my accounts that aren't student loans which are liabilities anyways.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you very much.

Providing it meets the required criteria, your co-sponsors affidavit will probably be the one that the CO uses as proof he or she did their job by collecting the financial evidence the government needs in order to grant your fiance his visa.

Any positive information you include with your affidavit will show you to be responsible and prepared - something that cannot hurt your case.

I have another question, on my I-134 (I know they won't really look at mine but instead rely on my Co-Sponsor's information/evidence) where it says if I am employed or engaged in the business of.. well currently I'm just an intern making like $10/hr. I only work like 8 hours a week.

Do I need to include that and give an employer's letter? Just seems kind of trivial since I only work barely 8 hours a week and when I have exams or days that I don't have school & so forth, I'm allowed to take those days off, so sometimes I don't even work at all one week. So my income is very unpredictable, and if I should include that I don't know how to sum up my "annual salary." I could go on last year's information but I had only started work 2 months before the end of the tax year so that's not really an annual salary either.

Or would it just be easier and state that I am a full time student? Since really my income is just what my parents put in my account, and my student loans cause let's face it, $80/week just doesn't cut it to seem like real income.

I know my information won't be the one that's scrutinized during the interview, but I would just like tie up the loose ends on my form. :)

I'm sorry for all the questions!! :huh:
