i-134 Income and Asset Info, And Other Supporting Docs

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

We recently got our NOA2 (Oct 8 ) and just today I was told by NVC that case is received and obtained the NVC case number. ☺️☺️

 

Anyway, I am in the process of preparing i-134 and had few questions.

 

Some info about me: Full time employee, 60K+ annual salary, couple grands here and there in checking/ savings, and brokerage accounts. I don't own a real estate or any other sizeable assets, no life insurance but I have a car loan. 

 

Questions:

 

  1. Do I need to enter my car loan? I owe about the same amount as the car worth, and IMO it doesn't make sense to list the value of my car in personal property (page 3, question 5) then have the similar amount in debt for question 8b.
  2. Is online account statements from Bank of America for past 12 months sufficient or do I need to get something official from a local branch?
  3. I plan on sending last years W2 and federal tax return forms (1040)- Is 1 year sufficient?
  4. How many months pay stubs should I send? 

 

Planning on getting a letter from HR as a proof of current employment, and getting brokerage account statement as well.

 

I've read countless threads, official i-134 guide, and reviewed few completed sample i-134 pdfs but it's already past 1am so please let me know if I am missing anything else.

 

Thanks.

You can call BofA and ask them to send you the monthly average off all your accounts for the past year on an official letter head. The letter I received also had the date I opened the accounts.

1. I would include the loan only because it's a line item they ask for. I put in my mortgage which is a relatively large amount. 

2. I concur with John951, go to a Bank of America branch and they can either print out your averages or your bank statements for the past 12 months with an official letter and signature on letterhead. 

3. One year is sufficient. I did research on this and they only require additional years from a sponsor if you use one. 

4. Depending on your pay frequency I'd send it 4 to 5 stubs dating back at least 4 months.  i,e. I get paid every week so I took one pay stub for each month dating back 4 months from present. 

 

You'll definitely need to get an official letter from HR that shows your current annual salary and start date of employment. 

 

I didn't worry too much about the loan/debt part as I have assets and savings that far exceed that amount so I can see why there might be some hesitation on your end. Maybe someone else can chime in on this but from what I can tell it's never a good idea to try to conceal information that they ask for as it could bite you in the end and I'd hate for that to happen. 

 

Try to include as many brokerage, checking, savings, etc. accounts as you can as that will further solidify your status and negate the loan issue. 

 

My fiancee just had her interview this morning and she was approved.

 

I see we are dealing with the same embassy/consulate so if you need help let me know.

1) been there...no need to put your loan. they do not do credit checks.

 

2) best is a statement from a local branch manager and in a bank header letter. Put however many accounts you have with them and the length of months the account has been opened and averages

 

3) 1 year might be sufficient, but best is to send last 3 years of W-2's and 1040's. 2017 is the most important one, but they might look into the history of your income, hence the prior years

 

4) 6 last pay-stubs more than enough

 

Letter of employment is good, with company header, amount of wages, length of employment, also if it is a full time position or whatever (seasonal or else) probably full-time in your case

 

No need for brokerage account, you seem to make more than enough for I-134

Today I got the letter from the Bofa local branch, and already scanned W2 and tax returns. Will ask HR for the letter tomorrow and print out paystubs as well.

 

 I'll put my car loan amount in question 8b then.

 

The question I still have is:

Do I add the the current value of my car to the total amount for question 5, Value of my other personal property ?

 

Official i-134instr pdf doesn't have any detailed instruction for this part, sorry if it's such a trivial question.  

 

Also, congrats on the approval!

Hi,

 

I just looked at my I-134 and I didn't realize the only debt they ask you to list is related to real estate. 

 

So I take back what I said about putting information about your car loan. Like you said, the value of the car pretty much nullifies the loan so it ends up being a net zero anyways. 

 

So the thing to do here is to leave out information on the car all together. 

 

Apologize for the misguidance I provided earlier.
