Hello, I am filling out my (U.S. Sponsor) I-134 AOS and have two questions. Going through London. Going to be using a joint sponsor, but want to fill out an AOS myself in case they ask for it.

 

1. Is there anything I should know about filling out part 3. as somebody who is currently unemployed? I currently have ticked "I am currently employed as a/an" and entered "UNEMPLOYED" into the box. Will this do?

 

2. Do I still list the value of my assets if I own no vehicles or property but I have smaller assets (laptop, tablet etc.), if not, do I leave it as 0.00 and will this get me in trouble for lying if I actually own some electronic devices and say I have no assets?

 

3. I do have money in my bank account but it's not enough to sponsor my fiancee alone. It is a decent amount though, so if I put it down anyway will I need to provide bank statements or other types of evidence to prove this?

 

Thanks for your time.

I-134 AOS stands for I-134 Affidavit of Support. It's common lingo on this website.

So is AOS= Adjustment of Status. It would seem that we have an acronym with dual meanings. However, I daresay, that the Adjustment of Status AOS acronym is a slightly bigger deal. As that, there are at least 3-4 AOS Adjustment of Status very active forums here on VJ. Sorry, I was thinking of the other acronym. BTW, have fun when you get to the other AOS, the I-134 will seem like a walk in the park. The legally liable financial form, the I-864,  Affidavit of Support Under Section 213A of the INA, can be a real mother. Good luck with the practice form I-134, Affidavit of Support.

 

BTW, the petitioner is always the primary sponsor and you have to fill out a I-134. Fill in what you can for employment, assets, and rely on the co-sponsor to carry you.

 

Good luck on your immigration journey.

No.  It stands for Adjustment of Status.

Yes! It does! You’re absolutely right! But it also stands for Affidavit of Support. 

But if you write 'AOS' here on VJ, or Google 'AOS', the presumption is Adjustment of Status.  Affidavit of Support is way more commonly referred to by the specific form numbers.

It’s not my burden that others are incapable of detecting context clues.

It can mean both depending on the on the context or circumstances; it's not limited to one or the other.
