I-134 - Page 2, Part 1, Question 12

Hi all,

I-134, PAGE 2, PART 1, QUESTION 12:

This question asks for the age of the sponsor and the date since they have resided in the USA. If the sponsor is an America citizen would they right "N/A" here? Or would they fill in their age and their DOB (as their DOB is the date that the started residing in the USA).

My feeling is you would write N/A as it states to only answer questions 11-12 if the sponsor is NOT a US citizen by birth. The reason I am confused is because the sample I-134 on VJ has this question filled out.

Does anyone have any experience with this? Should I just write "N/A" or fill out the sponsors age and DOB.

Thank you!

Can I complete my DS-160 before my application reaches the embassy?

Hi all,

First off, huge thank you for the support this community offers.

I have recently received an email from the NVC saying my petition will be forwarded to the US Embassy in Sydney, Australia for processing.

Is it too soon to complete and pay for my DS-160? Or should I wait for the embassy to contact me?

Also- when my fiance (petitioner) is filling out the I-134 does it matter that he dates and signs it before I have an interview scheduled? He will need to mail it to me from USA to Australia so I just want to make sure I have plenty of time to receive the form and supporting evidence before my interview is scheduled.

Thank you for your help!

K1 vs AOS income requirements

I am currently in the K1 process and have seen so many different answers on here regarding what financial documents to bring to the interviews. And if one is supposed to be 100% over the poverty line for K1 and 125% over for Adjusting Status. I have seen the Packet 3 requirements for Australia so far and for the i-134 it is so broad as to what I should bring? I do not have tax returns because I am a college student, although I started a full time job the beginning of this year and definitely meet the income requirements. I just have no clue what to do for the k1 process so far?

How long are medical and police records good for?

Hi guys!

Been a while since I've dealt with all this and my memory is a bit fuzzy from the last time. I divorced my Australian husband after 10 years and swore I would never date another foreigner again - only to fall in love with an Englishman! So, here we go again! ?

I have been back through the guides and stuff, but what I can't recall is how long the medical and police records are good for. My fiance is coming over in December and staying for three months (and hopefully getting an interview right after his return home!), so we're concerned he may not be home to do these things ASAP.

If he does them right before he comes over instead, will they still be good for a few months? We want to be able to fire off everything immediately when we can.

Also, I read somewhere that police records aren't required for all countries. I don't remember that being the case when I filed last time (but that was a while ago, time can change things!). Is that the case and how do I find out if it applies to him?

Thanks and look forward to being a part of the community again!

Australian Superannuation, IRS & Social Security

Hi All..

I know I m going to have to talk with a Tax Professional about this.. and also think it s somthing I should do sooner like before leaving Australia rather than later.. but

Can anyone explain in basic English to me the USA tax rules about my Australian superannuation?

Im hearing that USA doesn t fully understand our super system given it s enforced by government but run privately either by finance companies to invest or by SMSF (SMSF is what I m thinking to do, but worried it will again further complicate things). therefore earnings on investments, interest etc end up becoming something like foreign income... even though the government here will tax it ? True?

Im in the process of migration and really want to protect my super from being eaten up by the IRS given it is a retirement fund similar to but still not similar to your social security... I think it s closer to 401k but don t know for sure.

Also, what happens when I retire? I know I don t get my social security but will share my husbands... but how is our retirement affected by my superannuation?
