  1. Hi folks, apologies if this has been answered elsewhere but I'm trying to figure things out! I noticed the affidavit of support that you have to take with you to the embassy for the K1 visa must have a "wet signature" - does that mean I have to ask my fiancé to fill the forms out, sign them and post them to me, or can he just scan his wet signed forms and send them via email? Anything that involves the post worries the heck out of me because you all know what our post system is like (I sent him passport photos in February and they took almost 3 weeks to arrive, I think they were held in customs?? like...they're photos...why? 😩) but if that's the way it must be done, so be it. If anyone could let me know I'd be very grateful! x
  2. Hi guys my fiance not enough income for sponsor me ... but her friend ready to be a cosponsor . so it is accepted ? She or he can be my co sponsor ?
  3. where do I send the I-134 affidavit if my fiancé is going to the US Embassy in South Africa?
  4. Hi. I want to add affidavits by people who knew us as a couple for I-751. But unfortunately my family does not live in USA. So can I have any of my family member write affidavit for me from their country or does the person has to be in USA?
  5. Hi all, Long time listener, first time caller here(!). My fiance and I live are applying for our K1 in Ho Chi Minh City. I am the beneficiary (UK). We are both English teachers living in Vietnam. We have sent off the DS-160 and are finalising documents for the interview. I have two questions surrounding the Affidavit of Support (my fiance's mother has agreed to co-sponsor, given that my fiance lives in Vietnam with me, does not have a job in the US, nor a homeowner etc.) 1) Does the co-sponsor (my fiance's mother) fill out a I-134 or I-864? My understanding is that I-864 was just for AOS further down the line, but we don't want to be tripped up at interview time. 2) Does my fiance also have to fill out a I-134 even though she does not clear the requirements? (And therefore also submit W-2s, IRS returns etc) Or can you just do it with one sponsor? many thanks for your support.
  6. Hello Everyone! Very new to the community but excited to be here.. So, a little background.. My fiancee & I have applied for the K-1 Visa in June 2018. In December, we received the first approval and then she completed her medical in March, moved here in May from Sweden. I'm above the Poverty Guidelines by the USCIS / DHS. We will be getting married next week, nothing crazy, just a standard Justice of the Peace Ceremony. We are so excited to have our lives together and plan to have the AOS submitted in the next few weeks or so. From my understanding, PA takes about 10 days after getting married. Any way.. Here's our dilemma, I have the opportunity for change employment. That is actually going to have me making double or even close to triple to what my current income is now. So, there is an offer on the table that is extremely tempting (Obviously). I would be leaving one well-known established company for another well known & established corporation. There is no worry of the company falling apart at anytime. My only concern is that when the employment is all said & done with changing jobs it may negatively affect the Adjustment of Status. Interesting how life throws you a curve ball. I know changing jobs would probably mean more paperwork, which I do not mind. We have conquered the Mountain so far. Summary: I have a new job offer, everything will not be said & done until after I submit the AOS because of the timing. Can changing jobs affect me? Can changing jobs so close to submitting the AOS negatively affect me? Is there anyone out there that can relate or help me? Please and thank you for your help!😄
  7. Hi everyone, Just filed the I-129F and I'm looking ahead to next steps. For the affidavit of support, I'm just wondering if last year's tax return is necessary. My income is well above the poverty line, but I began this job in May and therefore my last tax return will not reflect my current employment. I was a graduate student for the past two years and only worked part-time (would not meet the poverty line I believe with my part-time income). Any help is appreciated! Thanks, Kailyn
  8. Hello! I have a question regarding the wording about affidavits and statements in the RFE. The RFE states that" "Written statements sworn to or affirmed by two persons, other that yourself and the person you are petitioning for, who were living at the time of the event(s) occurred, and who have personal knowledge of the event you are trying to prove..." Does this mean two separate letters, off two separate people? Or each statement/affidavit must have two witnesses signing it? Also, do we need to get statements from family members notarised? We might be guilty of over thinking this but my fiancee is going to send the evidence back to USCIS this weekend and we just what check to see if it's all right. Thank you for your help!
  9. My wife had her interview on May 20 for her f21 visa at US Embassy in Nepal and she was approved at the interview and was given a white approval card which says approved and instruction to collect passport. The status on ceac shows Aministrative processing since then and after looking up on VJ, it sounds like normal after interview. Now when I log in into ceac on page where we uploaded all our AOS documents and civil documents, the AOS section shows INCOMPLETE and has 864EZ line item as missing. I already submitted the regular 864 during the NVC process and everything showed completed until after interview. They din't ask for any further documents at the interview or even after interview. They didn't keep any documents at the interview as well beside Medical and kept passport. All the copies of original documents, 864, tax documents and even the passport photo was returned back after interview. I was in impression that they keep copies of civil documents and the tax documents but they didn't and i am kinda confused. May be they just use the scanned copies that we uploaded during NVC?? Is it normal or did embassy mess up something ? May be that can bring impact on the admin processing ? Can anyone who recently got approved verify for me if they have similar situation ?
  10. Just wondering, do we have to send a copy of the Affidavit of support to the NVC BEFORE the Adjustment of status interview? Our interview is April 30th and we haven't submitted it anywhere the letter just says to bring the affidavit docs to the appointment. Thanks!
  11. Hello, one and all! I'm new to this here community, but my fiance directed me to you because I've been plugging away at K-1 paperwork today and the flowchart of Visa progression really helped settle a bit of my anxiety! But of course, I still have a good many questions to ask and not many answers are forthcoming. As the topic title states, I'm currently struggling with the whole Affidavit of Support section required for my interview with my Embassy in London, UK. It is listed as a required document, but then goes on to state that it MAY be required. My fiance and I want to be ahead of the game (I already have everything else done and prepared from the checklist; DS-160, ACRO, Birth Certificate legal copy, Evidence of Relationship... you name it!!), so we'd really appreciate it if somebody could clarify whether the Affidavit of Support is required for us to file on the K-1. As an aside, I'm currently in contact with the school district where I'm moving to in the Lacey/ Olympia area of WA, and have submitted an application to be a Substitute Teacher with them. So, if that proves fruitful, would I be right in saying that they could provide me with the evidence of support? Thank you all for reading! And wish us luck for a speedy rest of the Visa process.
  12. My tax returns gross is less than 125% but more than 100%. I have a new job in which I started 4 months ago my pay is wayyy higher than 125% now. I am including 2 months worth of pay stubs, my previous tax return along with a letter explaining. I am tryimg to get something from my job because they said they dont do letters. My fiance interview is in 2 days. What are the chances of me being denied for being below 125% poverty on previous tax returns although I get paid more now.
  13. hi all! so I just submitted all my docs to CEAC and almost all of them were rejected with a problem. the thing that is the most confusing to me is that I as the petitioner filed the I-864 because you have to for affidavit of support. I am currently unemployed as I just moved home from living overseas. My father is the joint sponsor and makes enough. They said that he didn't fill out the I-864A because I was told he didn't need to and that it was just the I-864 from him and from me. does anybody know about this? I don't see why he needs to fill out an I-864a if he already did the I-864. thank you!
  14. please help! I submitted the past 3 years of tax returns for myself and my co sponsor.. as per the request on CEAC stating "tax return or transcript" I got a notice saying they cannot accept those documents and I need to send in a transcript. Unfortunately the IRS won't let me retrieve it online or by e mail and their service center is so backed up they won't take calls. did anybody run into this issue? which tax documents did you submit? I am trying to find a way to get around this as its the thing holding us back from getting to move on. thanks
  15. Hola, actualmente mi esposa(ciudadana estadounidense), mi hijo (ciudadano estadounidense) y yo (Mexicano) vivimos en Monterrey , NL México y estamos por empezar el proceso de IR-1/CR-1 Visa DCF, ya hemos estado investigando y juntado los documentos pero tengo algunas dudas.. Para el documento de I-864 Affidavit of Support Form vamos a pedirle a un familiar que se una al sponsor, ya que mi esposa a vivido la mayoría del tiempo en mexico entonces no tiene forma de ser mi sponsor. Mis dudas son, mi esposa de igual manera tiene que llenar el affidavit aunque no tenga ningún ingreso(Actualmente yo trabajo y ella cuida a nuestro hijo)? Y mi otra duda es si la persona que nos ayudara con el sponsor también tiene que ser sponsor de ellos (mi esposa e hijo). Otra duda, mi esposa desde que nacio mi hijo(1 año y 6 meses) no trabaja y no estudia, antes trabaja y estudiaba, creo que yo puedo ser su affidavit al momento de presentar el I-130 para comprobar que ella reside aquí en mexico por mas de 6 meses? Y también Mi esposa a estado llevando a mi hijo a terapia física de Lunes a miércoles por mas de un año y a diferentes citas en el hospital, esto podria contar como evidencia que ella reside aqui?
  16. Hello everyone! So I made a post a few days ago and I probably went overboard with a wall of text that nobody probably wanted to read let alone respond to. My bad 😅 So I've decided to just ask a question at at time. We are getting ready to submit interview documents to the consulate/embassy and I wanted some feedback on the I-134, so here goes. Affidavit of Support / Evidence of Financial Support - (40 Pages Total) ??? Do I need to include a letter stating that my income is above 100% and 125% of the FPL ??? Form I-134 - Without checking either box "intend" or "do not intend" and with a response of "N/A (Filing for my fiancee for a K1 Visa Process for Permanent Residence)" response to Page 4 - Part 3 - Item Number 38 (8 Pages) Letter from my Bank - Stating the total amount deposited and the average balance over the past 12 months, the date the account was opened, and the current balance (1 Page) Bank Statements - I included the first page of each statement only and included the following statements: February 2016, December 2016, January 2017, December 2017, January 2018, December 2018, January 2019 (7 Pages) Letter from my Employer - On their stationary/letterhead stating my name, my title, the date of my employment, my current annual salary (and monthly salary), and that I am a permanent employee with them (1 Page) Pay Stubs - Last 3 months' pay stubs from my employer (8 Pages) W-2 Forms - From 2016 to 2018 (4 Pages) Tax Return Transcripts - For the 2016 and 2017 tax years (11 Pages) Does this seem about right? Or are there any comments? I think I have it covered but I'm getting nervous about this whole thing. Hope to hear back from you all 😊
  17. Does anyone has copies of their affidavit?
  18. We are wondering if we need a joint sponsor, my husband and I live in chile he quit his 11 years job in 2017 to travel, we met in Chile and got married here, he has some assets in the USA and stocks but no actual salary income annually but he has a job contract for when we get back , is there some way to explain that or we will need a sponsor? we will appreciate your opinions, thanks.
  19. Hey everyone, K1 approved and Married 11/20/18 and his K1 visa is expired 12-12-18... Do we have to have all of the paperwork for AOS filled and sent in by then? Or is it more lenient because we are married now? Also do I the petitioner have to submit another affidavit of support for the AOS or can I just submit supporting financial documents? Did you make a nice binder/folder to make it presentable? Also the medical exam was sent from husbands country to the US embassy, is this something that is accessible on their end? THANKS everyone.
  20. Im a US citizen. Im trying to bring my parents to USA. I filed 2 forms i-130. It got approved and Im waiting for NVC to respond and in the meantime Im filling out the affidavit of Support I-864. Here are my questions. 1. Like I-130, do i need to file 2 forms for I-864, each for my father & my mother. 2. On PART 3 Item 2 I mentioned my mother as family member #1. Does this mean I don't need another I864 ?
  21. My wife and I will file her I-751 very soon and I am trying to get some affidavits from US citizen friends and co-workers for her application. I am in the U.S. Army and my unit commander wants to know if a military official memorandum from the unit commander with the official letter head and his signature would be better than a notarized sworn affidavit? Please let me know. Thank you very much!
  22. Hi all, We're among the unfortunate to call ourselves RFE recipients. When we supplied our AOS application we did so with only my foreign income from the previous years (under the guidance of an immigration attorney). My wife, who has been studying abroad for the past 7 years didn't have a job or relevant past tax returns to show at that time, so it was all my income. The RFE stated in pretty certain terms that the income has to have come from lawful US employment, which mine obviously wasn't. Now we're putting together the response to the RFE and our current situation is that she's had a part-time job since March and as of this week she got promoted into a full-time, making an annual $27,123. In addition to this we also have a bit over $20,000 in savings/other liquid assets. I have a job offer waiting for me since December of 2017 with an annual salary of $80,000. Getting a co-sponsor is out of the question at this point, due to time constraints. What we're currently planning on putting in the application is: My wife's employment verification letter for the new full-time position My wife's past pay-stubs from her part-time job + one pay-stub since starting the full-time position My offer letter Documentation of our assets A letter declaring my wife's exemption from filing her taxes Do you think this would be enough to qualify for sponsorship? And do we need to add anything to the package? Thanks for any input
  23. Hello! Last month I had received a letter that my son's F3 Immigrant case was being expedited due to his child turning 21 soon. This was just a day after the visa creation email for CEAC. Due to expedited status, CEAC Online did not allow us to pay fee or upload any financial documents. The NVC told us to present everything to Islamabad at interview. We were only able to enter civil documents. The CEAC did not allow fee payment or submission of affidavit of support, NVC said this is normal for all expedited cases. My son had the Interview today and they gave him white slip with 221G. The consulate officer said that he needed to upload the affidavit documents on CEAC. He had all original affidavit documents at interview, but they did not even look at them or listen to him. They keep on saying to upload them to CEAC. We tried contacting NVC and they say the case is expedited and they cannot accept the documents, only Islamabad can. Islamabad is not helping or respond at all and keeps on saying to upload online CEAC. The problem is CEAC is not allowing us to upload any documents since it is an expedited case. Any advice on how to resolve this
  24. Hey everyone, I received my interview appointment letter today, only 2 weeks after my EAD came through (feels surprisingly quick??!) and I/we have our interview scheduled for October 10th, a little over a month away. We only just opened the letter and read through everything but I instantly had a pretty important question. My wife filled out the I-864 Affidavit of Support and we submitted that with the I-485 application back in March. I understand that I don't need to bring a new I-864, having already submitted one (though I will of course bring a copy just in case) BUT in a weeks time my wife will be leaving her job to start a new business. Are they going to ask us/her whether her information for the original I-864 is still up to date? Will we need to provide proof of income for the new business? It's a start-up so besides the money we have to put in the business in the first place, we won't have any evidence of income to show. Is that going to be a problem? She potentially has the option of staying on at her old job for another few weeks so that she would technically still be employed there at the time of the interview. It's not ideal as our new business really needs us to focus fully on getting everything set up for our proposed launch mid October. I guess I'm trying to find out whether my wife has to stay at her job and/or, whether us starting a new business is going to be a problem in the interview, having already submitted the I-864 with information about her current (soon to be old) job. We would really appreciate any help or guidance you may have on this one. We weren't expecting the interview anywhere near as soon as it is and although it's great that it's happening so quickly, it's coming at a super awkward time with our financial situation... Thank you in advance, Peter.
  25. I'm getting a lot of mixed information, I was told to submit the affidavit of support so my fiancé could take it to his interview and now im being told no it isn't necessary can someone please help so I don't do the stupid thing and prolong the process even more.. thank you!!!
