Recommended Posts

Hello, we're preparing for our interview and i am still not sure about if i need to have the I-864 form or would the I-134 form sufficient? I am getting conflicting information on the web. 


Also can anyone please provide the list of items brought to the interview. I know this is a redundant question on the forum.

You know I was going to send you a link to the consulate webpage for K-1, but I'll be a monkey's uncle because it says I-864. So now I am confused.




Edit: It also says marriage certificate so I am pretty sure the accidentally have the spouse visa instructions posted there.

They try to make these stupid lists pull double/triple/quadruple duty and in doing so just confuse everyone.  The P4 list has I-134 for fiance visas and then lists I-864 below it but fails to state "for X visas".


You only need the I-134.  You'll need the I-864 to adjust status later.
