Is there a limit to the # of I-134 one can file?

Hi Guys/Gals,


Is there a limit to the # of I-134 one can file? I know I have filed like 4 or 5 affidavit of support forms (I-134) for friends/family, in the past 20 years. Some of them have already gotten green cards, have study jobs, and even became USCs. Others, have visited the States for a few weeks, and went back to their country of origin.


1. So now, I want to file one for my fiancee, and I was wondering if having filed 4-5, in the past, will be a problem? Do these I-134 expire or are no longer valid after a certain time?

2. Also, on the I-134, they's asking which person(s) I've filed it for and WHEN, but I don't remember the exact dates (I forgot, It's been years). Should I just put my best guess?


Thank you!

I-134 is not legally binding and expires after the 90 days.  I-864 however is a different ball game.  How many I-864 have you submitted as a joint sponsor?

Agreed with above. While you do need to put the information about the previous I-134's down, they aren't legally binding. 


It is the I-864 that is.
