Does my fiancee have to review the affidavit/134 form info?

Recommended Posts

Hi, fellow Visa Journeyers! I'm from West Virginia and my fiancee is from China. We met online and we've been together for over a year. I proposed several months ago (she accepted. YES!) and so we applied for the K1 visa. She's always been very concerned about my American family and friends thinking she was a gold digger (they insist that she's using me for money and/or green card) so she told me that she never wanted to know how much I made or anything about my financials because she didn't want to be with me for my money. I respected her wishes and so we never talk about money.

We're getting ready to schedule her interview with the embassy and as we're gathering the next set of forms to submit I noticed that the affidavit/134 form asks about how much I make, the value of any stocks/bonds, property, etc. The Visa Journey guide says I should send in tax docs like my W2s and the like, which I have no problem getting.

So is this affidavit/financial info strictly for the embassy to ensure I will be able to provide for her? Can I send to her in a sealed enveloped so she doesn't have to see it or can i send it to them directly?

Or will they ask her questions about it and so then does that means that she needs to study this affidavit info for the interview? Can she explain that she doesn't want to know anything about my finances and that that's something we've agreed to in our relationship (all relationships are different). She says her father never discusses money with her mother so she's used to it. Sure could use some help, wise Visa Journeyers. Happy holidays everybody!

While not impossible, it's highly highly unlikely that she will be asked about your finances. The CO will be using that form only to determine the likely to become a public charge question.

When the time comes for the Adjustment of Status process, you will have to complete the I-864; however, the purpose of that form is to determine your qualifications as a sponsor. It's not something she will need to know about.

Agreed as she probably won't get asked, nor do they probably care if she knows how much you make.

They may just ask things like "What does he do for work" and such; but as to finances don't think she needs to know dollar amounts and such
