I-134 income, assets, and supporting evidence?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

For those of you who have completed your K-1 Montreal interview and been approved:  I just want to verify something about the I-134.  


My fiance is the USC, is self-employed, and does meet the income requirement.  


1) I plan to bring his 2018 tax return and the previous 3 years IRS tax transcripts (2018's as well if we can get it in time - interview is mid-May)  

Is that enough supporting evidence or do I need a bank letter as well?  


2) It's my understanding that if we meet the income requirement we don't need to fill out I-134 Part 3 #4-9.  

Is that correct?  


I'm paranoid because he's self employed and the instructions are unclear to me.  I just want to have confidence I'm armed with everything I need!


What did you do?

I was in the same situation. My fiance was also self-employed and made enough income to fulfill the I-134 requirement. 


For the interview I brought his 2017 income tax returns (I did my interview Dec 2018), I included the IRS print out and his full and complete return. I brought a document showing the date my fiance opened his bank account and his two most recent bank statements (I was not able to get a letter from the bank that stated the total amount deposited over the year, but the two bank statements sufficed for the interview). 


I left Part 3 #4-9 blank and it was not a problem. 


I was also paranoid about the documents needed for him being self-employed so I brought along a copy of his business license, and his business card just in case, but they didn't ask for those items. During the interview they asked a lot about my fiance's business (actually, the entire interview was almost based on his business and what he did!), but it was simple questions and easy to answer.
