Hello again everyone -
I am busy preparing the I-864 to show support for my fiancee, as we work
toward the K-1. The whole situation gives me pause, though. Here it is:
I graduated with my Masters from college in July of 2000. I began working
the following August (2000) with an annual salary if $35,000. On my income
tax return for 2000, though, I only have $12,700 listed, since I only worked
4 months. As we all know, that will not be enough to make the 125% minimum,
even though my salary is well above said minimum. Will that be taken into
consideration? Also, the previous 2 tax years were lean college years, so I
definitely do not have above 125% of poverty those years.

As a result of these conditions, I am having my mother file a I-864 jointly.
I do not think that she needs the I-864A since I do not live in her
residence. She makes a few thousand dollars above the 125% poverty level
for a household of 6 (including my fiancee). Will that be enough? Is there
anything I am missing? Are there any recommendations? Also, do I have to
claim my life insurance? It is $90,000 incidentally.

I will be sending a paystub from my last check to show that I am employed at
a rate well above the minimum and my degree and field of work is one that I
will always be able to find work no matter where I would happen to move. Is
the fact that I was in college and relatively young (25) factor into the
equation? Also, my fiancee has dual degrees in Child Development and
Education and will have no problem getting a job once we get her settled -
in fact, some administrators here have assured me that she has a place in
this school district as we need teachers. Thinking logically about the
situation, I would say that it is a no-brainer. While we are not
well-to-do, our combined salaries would be about $70,000. But it is not
that right now and the INS does not, at times, work according to logic. So,
I admit that I am scared.

Any help is MOST appreciated - I just want my fiancee's interview at the
Montreal Consulate to go well and for this situation over the I-864 not to
hinder her from being admitted. She will never be a 'charge' to the state,
but that may not be of their concern. Once again, I remain -

Much obliged -
Jonathan

Correct me if I'm wrong but shouldn't you be preparing the I-134 for the k-1 visa?
The I-864 is the affadivit of support that you send when filing for Adjustment of
Status after you and your finacee get married.

i think some "hard" consulates particularly those in 3rd world countires require the
I864 since it's actually legally binding. of course i dont konw if this applies to
this poster.

Perhaps you are right - the I-134 is required for the consulate meeting and the I-864 is for the AOS interview. She is from Canada - anyone with experience from Montreal consulate? Will my evidence of support be enough for her? I will get a letter from my employer and a copy of my contract for next year (through August 2002). Will that be sufficient? Am I indeed filling out the wrong form?

Thanks again!
Jonathan

Jonathan,

I'm from Canada, just had my "successful" interview in Vancouver on May 16th. I used the I-134 that my USC fiance filled out. I believe that is what you need also. The I-864 is used for the AOS for us.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck

Cindy

You only need the I-134 for the interview in Montreal - and it only asks for your
current income - and a letter from your employer. I also included proof of the assets
I listed (copy of my home deed). Tax forms are only needed if you are self-employed.
Save the I-864, you'll need it in a few months. Take Care. Shelley
