I-134 for a married couple

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I am a USC bringing my fiance here on a fiance visa.

I submitted my I-134 but the embassy in Albania sent us an email saying that we need a joint sponsor. This will be my dad. The email said, "If the joint sponsor is married, his/her spouse should also submit a signed Form I-134, accompanied by a photocopy of the U.S. passport or of the legal permanent resident card of the spouse of joint sponsor, regardless of joint sponsor’s spouse tax filing situation."

This means that my mom also has to fill out the form. She has no income but files jointly with my dad. Here is my question: what amount do I list as her income on question 7? Do I list zero since she doesn't work, or do I list the amount on their tax return since they filed jointly. Her name is on the tax return so it seems like that's her income, but if I list the same income on both her and my dad's I-134 forms then it will be double counted.

Also, I might include their bank statement. Since their account is in both their names they both own the money. So do I list the money on both of their forms or just my dad's?

I'm not worried about meeting the income requirements, I just want to make sure that I fill out the forms correctly. What do you think?

Thank you!

The income amount for the mom is $0. She does not have an income.

If the dad makes enough to meet the requirement for his household size(himself, wife, any other dependents, and anyone he has a current sponsorship for through an I-864) plus the foreign fiance(e), then no need to list any assets. If you list assets, then split the amount on their forms, if they have a joint account.
