Recommended Posts

Hi, my fiancee just went to her interview and they told her that we did not meet the requirements for the i-134. I don't make enough at all but we had a second form from a joint sponsor who makes about 21k which I thought met the requirements according to what I found online. https://mypathtocitizenship.com/income-requirement-affidavit-support-form-134/ (He has no dependents). However, the embassy said that we did not meet the requirements and needed a sponsor that has assets such as a house and a car. I still unsure exactly what requirements need to be met and why ours wasn't enough?

I'm not sure of the actual amount off top of my head but something like 21-22k annually.... but, the CO has the ultimate decision whether they feel the beneficiary would become a public charge, and even someone making 21k a year, that is not alot for one person to live off of let alone two, and they are just a joint sponsor. Also, the CO could be looking ahead to the AOS phase once married in the US where the I864 affidavit of support requires 125% instead of 100% like the I-134, so again they are feeling that is not going to cut it and have to make that decision.

Plus just the AOS itself costs $1225 upfront so...

Either find someone who makes a significant amount more, or have your current co-sponsor show other things like savings, assets, and other things to strengthen their case.

Here is the official site for the minimum income requirements: https://www.uscis.gov/i-864p

 

Meeting the minimum requirement does not guarantee approval.  The consul officer makes a decision based on the totality of your and your joint sponsor's circumstances, as already explained by Ben&Zian.
