Default I-134 affidavit question

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a bit of advice again!

I have read conflicting information about when the I-134 Affidavit needs to be filed in a K-1 application. Some people say that it should be filed with the I-129F, while others say it sould be sent to the fiance for the interview. as there are different requirements (tax returns etc) depending on the embassy you are interviewing at. I am applying through London.

Also, do I (UK) need to send my birth certificate for the I-129F or just the USC? And for the interview, Does my fiancee (USC) need to send copy of her passport or birth certificate?

Thanks,

Pete

Hi
I can only help you with one answer, as my visa was the I-130
(spousal visa - in Lodndon) and I'm not sure if there are any major differences.
However the affadavit of support is not needed until the interview.

good luck

The I-134 affidavit is sent you for you interview, although apparently she can send
it straight to the embassy if she doesn't want you to see who much she is worth, but
since you are marrying her it may be a little weird not letting you see. As for
evidence I have been sent 3 years tax returns (Federal and State) a letter from my
girls employer stating how long she has been there and how much she is getting paid,
a letter from her bank manager saying how long she has had her account and the
average balance for the last year and a whole years worth of bank statements, only
because I read somewhere that they wanted a list of withdrawals and deposits into her
bank account and her bank cant tell her this and finally a copy of her stock
statement. This is perhaps too much, I haven't had my interview yet so I don't know
if this is enough.....yet another attack of nerves as I rush of to check my paperwork
for the 54th time!

I never sent my birth certificate with the I-129F and ours got approved no problem
and as for the USC's birth certificate and passport for the interview, I certainly
hope not, my interview is on Tuesday and I don't them!

The I-134 absolutly DOES NOT need to be sent with an I-129F petition to the INS. If
the consulate uses them (some do not), then it will simply be needed to be presented
at the time of the interview there.

You do not need to send in your birth certifificate with an I-129F (it is not called
for in the instructions) (have it handy at the interview, if requested) The USC does
not need to send the birth certificate unless they are using it as proof of
citizenship. The passport could be used for this.....so you really only need one or
the other for the USC.

Yes, you include too much if you included all that and are not self-employed or using
assets to qualify. Unless using assets, you don't include a bank statement or stock
info. Letter of employment is all that is necessary unless using asset. If the
consulate asks for tax returns, you can include those too. But they are not normally
asked for unless the Petitioner is self-employed.
