Hi there,

We are waiting for NOA2 and starting to get organised for the next steps.

My fiance and I will require her father as a co-sponsor as she is just heading to graduate school and thus won't be making a heap.

I have seen various threads with differing advice on what form you need when using a co-sponsor. Some I have seen say you need to use form I-864, some say you just need two copies of I-134 (one filled out by the fiance and one by the co-sponsor).

Can anyone give me the latest on this?

Thanks a heap.

Mark

For a K1 visa, you'll need to use the I-134. Both the fiance and the sponsor will need to fill it out.

Adjustment of status is when the I-864 is used.

Bee - Devon PA, USA (he's the one who gave her the shiny ring)

I-134 is for NON-Immigrant visas like the K-Visas.

I-864 is only for Green-card ether through an IMMIGRANT visa like IR-1 or CR-1, or is used when adjusting status in the USA from a NON-Immigrant visa to immigrant status, (I-485)

Co- sponsor provides an I-134 in addition to US Citizen Fiancee's I-134.

One other thing about I-134, the directions included with I-134 are very old, USCIS has no reason to update them since USCIS has no application for that form.

The consulates tend to treat the I-134 like a mini-I-864 as so prefer the same financial evidence as the I-864.

In our case this what the I-134 included.

  • I-134 signed and notarized.

  • SIMPLE Tax transcripts from the IRS for past 3 years, (Redundant for the (1040,W2,1099) but are free from the IRS http://www.irs.gov/faqs/faq1-6.html

  • Photo copy of IRS form 1040, and W2s for past 3 years (Not necessary if you provide the transcripts)

  • Letter from my employer stating annual salary, job responsibility, and that is full time, on company letterhead.

  • Photo copies of past month or so of pay stubs up to a few weeks before the interview.
My income was well above the povertyline so I did not include any asset data (LIKE BANK STATEMENTS or property values).

If your income exceeds 125% of the povertyline when counting yourself, prospective immigrant and any dependents, then don't bother with assets (401K, Bank balance, Stocks etc..), it is just extra un-needed data to provide, the consular officer is most concerned with INCOME.
