Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Nicaragua

I've filed i129f for my fiance, past three years have made well over the income requirement for sponsor.. Have tax returns and irs transcripts for affidavit of support. However, this year I've been out of the county with my fiance most of the time and got pregnant and filed for Medicaid and food stamps to help with my pregnancy while I try to get back to work. By the end of the year my income should be enough for affadavit of support also even though I know I don't need to show my 2019 Income as long as interview is this year. I plan to get off food stamps and Medicaid once I'm earning my regular wage. My question is, will me being on the assistance affect my ability to be my fiances sole sponsor? Even if I make enough?

The I-134F requires CURRENT income, not last years, or guesses of the future:


Part 3, the first question is:




Also, the tax returns are for Self Employed


Part 3, question 3 (note)  "If Self Employed, I have attached a copy of my last income tax return or report..."


Were you self employed, W2, 1099???


If you have assets that are more than 125% of poverty, and since you have a baby you need to list for 2 dependents, not 1. 


In the I-134F instructions, for your CURRENT job:


B. Statement(s) from your employer on business stationery showing:
(1) Date and nature of employment;
(2) Salary paid; and
(3) Whether the position is temporary or permanent.



So did you fill out the I-134 truthfully???  You admit that you were out of the country... what did you put as an employer???


You might sneak through the I-134F, but the AOS / I-486 paperwork is on the horizon.
