I-134 Affidavit of Support: how to fill out with co-sponsor?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiancé (Spanish citizen) and I (US citizen) recently got our I-129f approved. We are still waiting for his notification from the US Embassy in Madrid, but are trying to get together some of the paperwork we know he'll need to bring to the interview in advance. I am about to start a new job that will theoretically pay enough to meet 100% of the poverty line for a 2-person household, but since I'm still a student and the position is likely going to be temporary (~1 year), my parents agreed to co-sponsor us just in case. Do my father and I each need to fill out a separate I-134 form and attach separate documentation? I believe this is the case but I couldn't find any recent information on the subject. Also, my parents have always claimed me as a dependent on their tax returns. However, I read somewhere that my dad should NOT claim me as a dependent when he fills out this form. Is that true? Will claiming me as a dependent cause any problems? Should I not include as evidence any tax returns in which they have claimed me as a dependent?

Yes, each complete an I-134 and include copies of supporting documents.

 

Do you file your own tax returns?

My parents' accountant files our family's tax returns. I believe he has filed ones for me separately in the past when I've had part-time student jobs. However, my dad said he double checked and has always claimed me as a dependent. Will there be any problems with our Visa if my dad lists me as a dependent? (He won't have to in the future because I'm about to start full-time employment, but any previous tax returns that we include as evidence will show me as a dependent.)

Embassy will expect to see a tax return from you.  You may want to write a letter explaining that you were in school and now graduated, or whatever .. not sure how your embassy will look at things, it really does vary embassy to embassy.
