Quick questions about I-134 and interview!

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello! 

 

I have my interview in two days and I am just reviewing our affidavit of support! 

 

According to the instructions on the USCIS website, I am supposed to answer "N/A" or "none"  where applicable - does that mean EVERY blank space? Just seems like a lot/messy lol! 

 

Also , I know there have been questions regarding Part 3, Question 38 - I have put on the final page in additional info that it is a K1 visa application, as per the example form on VJ. I was just wondering if we were supposed to check "yes" or "no", or just leave it blank?

 

I also just want to be sure I have all the documents necessary for my interview! 

I have:

- my passport and a photocopy of my biographic page

- sealed medical exam

- 2 color US passport size pictures

- Confirmation page of DS-160

- Statement of intent to marry from both of us

- my long form birth certificate + photocopy

- my police certificate (I actually have 3 because of the recent Canadian changes, including a regular one, border/visa fingerprint, and the Privacy Act one)
- Affidavit of  Support, including letter from bank and employer, 5 pay stubs, 3 years of income tax, most recent W-2
- copy of his birth certificate/passport biographic page for petitioner status in US
- copy of his driver's license, and a few other pieces proving US domicile

(this was all that was stated as needed for the Canadian interview)

 

I also have:

- copies of NOA1 and NOA2, as well as the copy of I-129F that was sent back to me + original letters and e-mails from throughout the process
- some skype convos, flower orders for evidence of continued relationship if they ask (we haven't seen each other in person since December so no pictures/tickets)

 

Is there anything I am missing or you would suggest I bring? Thank you so much! :D

We put N/A on the first question of each section that was not applicable.

 

It looks like the rest is good.  Probably more than you need but there is nothing wrong with that.

I do + P4. I have everything needed but I just wanted to be prepared if they ask for extra details! Thank you.

lol don't worry so much.  The interviews in Montreal are pretty easy.  The only time people have difficulty is when they work in a STEM field and don't bring a resume, are originally from or have family originally from a high fraud country, or the USC doesn't have US domicile.
