THE K PACKET
I only have copies of my petitioner’s Affidavit of Support and income tax return: will you accept these?
A Form I-134 bearing the original signature of the petitioner should be submitted. Photocopies will not be accepted. However, transcripts and photocopies of the Form 1040 and W2 will be accepted.
My mother agreed to be my joint sponsor. I will be submitting a Form I-134 from her.
Please be aware that joint sponsors in K nonimmigrant visa cases are not legally bound to address the financial needs of the applicant. The simple submission of a Form I-134 by a joint sponsor is, therefore, not always sufficiently credible to overcome the public charge provisions of the law. Petitioners in K visa cases should be able to demonstrate their ability to maintain an income at or above the prescribed federal poverty guidelines for their prospective household sizes.
