K-1 Visa - London Embassey - Inquiry

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So I made a very stupid mistake that I did not notice until just today. My fiance has his interview at the London Embassy in 3 days, and I just noticed today that I filled out the wrong Affidavit of Support. I filled out form i-184 (for the Change of Status) instead of form i-134 for the K-1 Process. I realize that I was on the London Embassy page for Family Visas and the required documents instead of the Fiance Visa page's required documents.


Either way, I gave him my 3 most recent W-2s , two recent paystubs, and my employment offer letter which details my entire salary package. I make way over the poverty line, and my W-2s prove that my household (before him coming here) is currently just me.
There is absolutely no form of mail that will be able to get to him with my 'wet' signature on it by Wednesday that I know of, unless the Floo Network really is a thing there and he's been keeping that very well hidden from me.

 

When I look on the London Embassy, the documents page leads to an "error" (https://uk.usembassy.gov/visas/fiancee-2/the-interview/)  but it also says this about the Affidavit:

 

" K and Diversity visa applicants are not required to provide an I-864 Form.  However, they must show evidence that they are not likely to become public charges while in the United States. There is no set for that this evidence must take but use of the form I-134 is an efficient way to provide this information to the Consular Officer. "

 

It doesn't say the I-134 is required, just that it's efficient.

 

 

I guess what I'm asking is: How much of an issue is this going to be? Can they take the I-184 in lieu of the I-134 as technically it's the more binding document anyway? Can I email over a scanned copy of my I-134 to go with the packet? What's the worst case scenario if everything else is in perfect order and it's just this one thing that's missing?

 


Thanks, I appreciate it. This whole process has me going nuts.

I know London is a lot different than most other places but in Bangkok my fiance never gave them a copy of the 134 with a wet signature just one that I emailed her. Never looked at or asked for the original. May not work out that way all the time but did for her.

You don’t need a wet signature for the I-134 in London. Don’t submit the I-864 they probably won’t accept it as it’s the wrong form. Fill out the I-134, scan it to your computer with a signature, email your fiancé a copy and have your fiancé print it out and bring it to the interview. You should be fine. Worst case scenario they will ask your fiancé for a copy with a wet signature but I HIGHLY doubt that. @britishandusa submitted an I-134 without a wet signature and was absolutely fine ☺️

Thanks! I just scanned and sent it today. Got a little held up on the infamous question 38 (Specific Contributions Y vs N) So I just said Yes, then filled out a statement in the additional information. I think I'm overthinking this.

 

Anyway. Thank you all! You've calmed my nerves.

It's an inconsequential question but the answer is really  NO because you are not limiting your contribution to a specific amount 


YMMV

I assumed that was the case originally, but I found a lot of threads here contradicting one another and felt the easiest thing to do would be just to spell it out in the additional information and cover my butt, my fiance's butt, and the whole process' butt.

FWIW, I've never heard of anyone's answer to this question causing anyone any actual problems with a K-1, despite lots of people worrying about it (if they ever get around to reworking the form, hopefully they explicitly mark the successor to that question as explicitly not applicable to K-1s) .
