K-1 Evidence of Support

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We have recently been approved and the CEAC website says we are ready for interview (though we haven't received a letter yet) so we're currently gathering documents in preparation for my interview. Just some questions on the necessary documents for evidence of support (to go with the I-134 Affidavit):

Which documents are pertinent or of most importance? Would the Form 1040 and W2s be considered the most necessary documents? Will they check for employer's letter as well? Are bank statements needed?

My fiance (US citizen petitioner) is earning a good amount of money (well beyond 125% of poverty line) in his current job but doesn't exactly have a fortune saved in his bank, so we were just wondering if just his income/pay stubs along with Form 1040 & W2s would suffice?

FYI I am based in Manila and will schedule my interview soon for the US Embassy of Manila.

Thank you!

Hi Trishaaa, it's Bea! :P

Not sure my answer will be the most helpful, but just wanted you to know that we included all said documents, even his bank statement which didn't have a lot in it at the time. They will look at his income more than his bank account. It might be better to have everything with you just in case they ask for it, otherwise they could ask you to submit them at a later time.

We weren't asked for the I-134 during my interview, though.

Agreed with above. I am well above the 125% guideline but physical savings was a bit low. I took a loan on my 401K just to "beef" it up for them to look better for to cover the costs for AOS and other things.

But they primarily look at W2's and consistent income from what I know. But as above also, take all the documents you can so if they do want to look at them, it's rightt here and available.
