I-134 affidavit of support for K1 visa

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My question is in regards to the I-134 form. I am well aware that I as the petitioner need to complete this form but my question is that my last 3 year tax returns 2015, 2014, and 2013 reflect that I meet the 100% of poverty income guidelines for the k1 visa which I did meet but barely by maybe 900.00 over the income guidelines. However, I also see that in some embassy's they want you to at least make the 125% because in the next few months when we apply for the green card, we have to meet the 125% income guidelines. I received a pay increase in February of 2015 but that won't reflect until I file my taxes in 2017 for the 2016 year. I was wondering if I just bring my W2's and make copies of my check stubs from February of this year until current that show my pay increase would be sufficient or would they need the actual tax returns? Right now we don't know when the interview is and so I don't know when I can file my tax returns for 2016 because it's a matter of when I receive all my documents until I can file. I want to make sure I do this right and have all the necessary documents.

Current income is what matters most. Make sure to get a current letter of employment (stating annual salary and that your position is permanent), and submit this along with with a collection of your recent paystubs.

If it isn't difficult, it isn't worth it.
