Posted (edited)

I am filing a K1 visa for my fiance but I do not make enough money to meet the minimum guidelines for the k1 visa, so I have to have my father be the sponsor. he will be sponsoring her 100%

 

On the I-134 do I have to write my name on Part 1 (see pic), or do I have to write my father's name? i just want to double check.

 

thank you for your help.

As the primary sponsor, you are required to complete an I-134..........the joint sponsor must also..........I hope you have plans to meet the 125% threshold at the time of adjustment of status?  and additional costs of immigration?  and living expenses & healthcare in the US?

so does that mean both my dad and i must fill out TWO forms (one each)?

 

he makes over $100,000. and there are only 3 people in our household (my mom, my dad and i).

 

when filing the form are previous tax forms, property value and current paystubs enough?

You are the primary sponsor, and you must provide an affidavit of support with supporting documents.  Any joint sponsor must also do the same.........at the time of the interview, the consulate officer will consider the entire financial picture before making a determination of whether your fiance will become a public charge.   In what country will the interview take place?

Some embassies will not accept an I-134 joint sponsor.  

You might be looking at marrying and re-filing for spouse with joint sponsor.

Don't mean to hijack this thread...I'm just trying to understand...Would you care to elaborate? What do you mean by "Some embassies will not accept an I-134 joint sponsor." Why would they care?! If someone is willing to sponsor the beneficially 100% why would the embassy say NO? Also why "some embassies"? If a sponsor is required for someone not making enough $$, shouldn't that apply across the board? I'm confused.

I might be wrong; I've heard that Manila doesn't always accept joint sponsors for K-1:

All consulates are not equal in what they require or will accept........fact.

True statement, but that's the epitome of discrimination :( I can understand that some consulates are labeled as "high fraud" and probably rightly so, but I don't think we should allow sponsors for some and deny it for others. USCIS and Consulate reserve the right to do due diligence and even extra vetting if they suspect foul play,  but we should not deprive everyone (from those co called high-fraud consulates) from the opportunity to build and present their case on equal footing. Best of luck to ALL. Just my 2 cents...

I-134 is funny.  It’s not really “enforceable”. So some embassies won’t take them unless they are meat and potatoes income > guideline - otherwise they’ll tell you to get married and come back.  

They consistently accept I-864 joint sponsors.  That’s the real support affidavit.

Thank you! My bad I think I misunderstood. I realize (now) that I-134 is not the "real thing" so to speak and that I-864 is a lot more formal and carries a lot more weight, and I agree. I thought you said (or insinuated) that some embassies just don't accept sponsors period. I-864 or not, they  just don't accept it, and if that's the case, I think it's unfair. Cheers!
