First post here. My I-129F hasn't yet been approved, my fiance sent off some extra evidence that was recieved July 2, 2019,  but just want to know for future sake.

I live in the UK and my fiance in the US and I've read through all the documentation we will have to file in future but need help.
My fiances father will be co-sponsoring me aswell as my fiance.
As he works as a detention officer, so just a little extra support to know that I'm not immigrating to break any laws and to help support me financially until I get my work permit and a secure job.

But the problem is I don't see in the Affidavit of Support i-134 forn where to list Co-Sponsorship.
Would they both need to fill in seperate forms or am I missing something?

Thank you very much!

Cosponsor fills out everything that the petitioner does. So yes I-134 would need to be completed by the cosponsor as well as the petitioner.

Not for London-specific cases.

 

The UK fiancé will need to provide at their consulate interview - an I-134 filled out by the cosponsor. One from the US fiancé is not needed nor will they ask for it.

The UK fiancé will also need to provide financial documents from the cosponsor, such as tax transcripts, pay stubs, or an employee letter. London is a little unique in consulate procedure in that they don't ask for too much, just enough that is adequate and proves sponsorship from someone.

 

When the couple has married and must file adjustment of status, and they still plan on using a cosponsor (then known as a joint sponsor) BOTH the petitioner (the US spouse) and the joint sponsor (the father) must provide each a financial sponsorship form I-864 and supporting financial evidence.

Most embassies require both, one from the petitioner and another from the cosponsor.  If you were interviewing in the Philippines chances are you wouldn't even be ask to present financials from either or both parties. So my position is not to be an "expert" for any one embassy but to opine in a generic fashion. What I provided as an answer, which maybe over kill for the UK interview but it would be enough documentation to present to the CO that they have answered the financial requirement whether the CO would have reviewed either or both.

 

And, since I wasn't asked about the requirements for the AOS phase I reserved not to answer so not to muddy the waters so the OP remains focused on what is needed currently.
