I-134 supporting documents question

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, I’m new to this board, so I apologize if my questions have already been answered in another discussion. I’m from the US, and my fiancée is scheduled to interview at the US Embassy in Manila next week. Initially, she was happy with all documents I had sent, but then she became concerned with the number of pay stubs as sent as part of the POA supporting docs. I sent three recent ones, but they are bi-weekly. What I did send was: a letter from my employer of 18 years stating my salary and years of employment, a copy of my 2018 W-2, my 2018 1040, a letter from my bank, the latest front page from my finial advisor’s latest quarterly report showing stock earnings, along with the three pay stubs. 

 

I’m in education, and my pay more than meets the 125% over the poverty line requirement. And, as stated, I’ve worked at the same school for many years. Are we worrying for nothing? Should I at least scan a few more pay stubs and send them to her? I appreciate your help.

You won't need that many pay stubs for Manila.  But if emailing more would give your fiancee more peace of mind, I say go ahead and do it.  If you have your 2017 (or 2018?) tax transcripts on hand, might as well email those too.  Not required, but better to have at the interview, just in case.  Wouldn't hurt to be over-prepared if only to help calm your fiancee.  Just tell her not to be surprised if the consul officer does not look at all (or even any!) of your financial documents.

 

Good luck to you and your fiancee!

Now she is saying I should scan some bills I pay. I don’t know why that would be necessary. 

Not necessary...Most recent 1040 and w2 or transcript and I-134 are all that is necessary for Manila. I provided all of this and my fiance was not asked for it at the interview))) Tell your fiance to relax)))


Not a newbie but lost my old info years ago) I have been through this process before --all the way through naturalization-- This site has always been a great help to me.

boris64 is right -- that's not necessary at all.  Bills do not show your income.

Thanks for your responses. I didn’t see the point in sending bills. What I did was have the payroll secretary make a copy of my check history for the last calendar year. I had her sign the last page with the year’s totals. Since I will need to scan these pages and send to my fiancée, I thought it would be good to have this signature as verification. She is the same person who signed my letter from my employer verifying my salary and years of employment. 

 

In another matter unrelated to my I-134 questions... my fiancée told me she needed three verified copies of her birth certificate, background checks, and proof of no marriage. Is this correct? Thanks!

Has she done the CFO yet? If not then three copies for CFO and embassy interview will be fine. Copies of check history? Too much. Nobody at the Manila Embassy is going to take the time to look at that. 1040 w2s or transcripts and I-134. And it is 50/50 if they even ask to see those...

Yes, your fiancee needs her PSA Birth Certificate, NBI Clearance, and CENOMAR.

 

This has the official checklist of documents for the interview:

As boris64 mentioned, prepare the documents for CFO as well, in case she hasn't completed that yet.
