I-134 Questions (split and merge)

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, all!

I've been a lurker here since I started the K-1 process for my fiance in the Philippines and we're at the point where we now have our interview date (3/28/19) and I'll be flying there on the 26th to be with her to support her (really each other) over the last hurdle. So, I have a couple of questions but first a quick background:

I was once married to a Brazilian and we went through the IR-1 process. She was approved and entered the US in 2015. I, of course, had to submit an Affidavit Of Support for her at that time. I understand that as the petitioner, we're "on the hook" for 10 years unless they get citizenship or leave the country.

 

Fast forward to today. I'm filing out the I-134 and am wondering about a couple of things on there...

 

1. Dependent's Information

Do I need to list my ex-wife here even though we're obviously divorced, live apart and she's working? Our divorce decree had no spousal support requirements/obligations and I do not support her financially.

 

2. I have previously submitted affidavit(s) of support for the following person(s)

I assume I need to list the ex-wife here?

 

3. I have submitted a visa petition to USCIS on behalf of the following persons.

Once again, I need to list the ex here?

 

4. Part 3, #38 - I intend/do not intend to make specific contributions to the support of the person named in Part 2. 

Part 2 is naming my beneficiary fiance, so I'm confused about this question.

 

I hope my questions make sense, and if they don't please let me know so I can help clarify. Any help is appreciated!  :)

One other thing...

 

I requested my prior 3 years of tax transcripts online. Once I downloaded them and printed it, something odd stands out and I hope it's not an issue when they are submitted at the interview....

 

On all three of them, where it states: NAME(S) SHOWN ON RETURN: XXXX (First 4 letters of ex-wife's last name, which is different from mine because she kept her maiden name). But it doesn't have my name on there anywhere. It does show my SS# above that, along with hers below mine as well as mine for SSN Provided. I am the person that filed the taxes (married, filing jointly) so why itsn't my name anywhere on it? Any ideas on this? Thanks!

I don't mean to hijack the thread, but I think it's still relevant to the topic and I haven't received a response to my original post since 2/9, so I'm hoping someone can help me as our interview is next month. 

 

I was once married to a Brazilian and we went through the IR-1 process. She was approved and entered the US in 2015. I, of course, had to submit an Affidavit Of Support for her at that time. I understand that as the petitioner, we're "on the hook" for 10 years unless they get citizenship or leave the country so her "clock" is 4 years into the 10.

 

Fast forward to today. I'm filing out the I-134 as part of the K1 for my fiance and am wondering about a couple of things on there. The bold print is from the form...

I assume I need to list the ex-wife here?

 

3. I have submitted a visa petition to USCIS on behalf of the following persons.

Once again, I need to list the ex here? As well as my current fiance?

 

4. Part 3, #38 - I intend/do not intend to make specific contributions to the support of the person named in Part 2. 

Part 2 is naming my beneficiary fiance, so I'm confused about this question.
