I have been using the list on this site of materials needed to file for a K1 visa. We have a local civic center, and yesterday, I went there just to verify that all of my information was correct and relevant to the application. They told me that I would need 3 years of my tax returns, a letter written by my employer describing my job, and saying that I was in good standing and would not lose my job anytime soon, and also my foreign fiance's birth certificate and a translation. Are all of these additional things necessary? Or can I do the application without them?

How long have you had your job and are you well over the poverty guideline?

We only used tax return from 2015 and did not have letter from employer.

Her BC will be needed with the translation.

Forgot to say it's for interview.

For the initial application, no tax returns and job stuff is needed. You will need that at interview, to hand in together with the I-134

you will want to get the last 3 years tax transcripts, even if you only need the most recent one now for the I134, you will need all 3 for the I864 when you are doing AoS

You don't have to send in all 3 of them for AOS you CAN but don't have to.

The birth certificate will only be needed at the interview phase. A translation of it will only be needed for aos.

Most embassies/ consulates only ask for one year of tax returns. For aos you will have to have filed for the last three years (or if you haven't filed, you'll need an explanation for that like being a student, not having the minimum income to file, etc or else you'll have to back file) but only need to send it in the last years one.

The letter from the employer will depend on your partners location as well. I didn't present one but my then fiancés income was well over the poverty guidelines and also we had at least 6 months of pay checks and tax returns to substantiate that.

Go with the vj guide, you won't regret it.

None of these things are needed to send in the K1 application at all. The guide here tells you everything that is needed for the application.

As for tax returns, a letter from employer, and the foreign birth certificate + translation? Most embassies will just ask for the most recent tax return, or to make it a little easier - tax transcript. These are things for the interview only. This is also generally covered in the guide.

Thanks everyone! So what I'm gathering from this is that for the application itself, we're ready to go - and these other items will be needed at a later time (Either for the interview of AoS). This makes me feel a lot better knowing I can send the application now, and work on pulling the other things together for the next steps. :)

I think this is one of those things that the more you look into it - the more complicated it seems! This site has been a huge help though!

Sorry if you already know this, but I just figured I would let you know that ordering your tax transcripts is super easy and 100% free.

https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript Just fill out the relevant info and they will mail them right to your door in like 7-10 days!

So when it gets closer to the interview (or now, if you prefer) just visit that link!
