Sponsors I-134

All K1 Sponsors must provide a signed application I-134 Affidavit of Support to their K1 beneficiary to bring to their US Embassy Interview.

Required financial supporting documents will depend on your situation?

The purpose of the I-134 Application is to provide evidence to the interviewer that you are capable of supporting your fiancee and possibly any K2 children that you are sponsoring? All sponsors must also count any independents in their household and if you ever sponsored another immigrant in the past you must also count them, unless they have become a U.S. Citizen, or earned 40 quarters from Social Security, became deceased, or returned to their original Country? Divorce does not exclude you from still being their sponsor?
