Helo all,

I have checked instructions on I-485 form, could not find the need of I-134 form. Do we really need to submit 134 form with 485 for dependent?
Please advise.
Thanks

It seems it is required for family based AOS not employment based AOS.

Its not mentioned in 485 insturction about affidavit, right?

You are right. I don't believe this is necessary for employment based AOS, especially since for AOS we have our dependents here in the US.

I - 134 IS NOT CORRECT. IT IS FOR VISITOR VISA.

WE NEED TO USE I-864 FORM FOR AFFIDAVIT OF SUPPORT TO FILE DEPENDANT'S I-485.

my big lawyer - sent me I-134 and filed with it. She said she is in the job of filing for the last 10 days. Later, I came to know that there is I-864. Don't know it's prupose.

Affidavit of support is affidavit of support. so, I go with I-134.

I filed mine and spouse's AOS in May and the principal applicant has to complete the I134 for their dependents, notarized, and put in their dependents packet. Just thought I would mention I was guided by a great document which my university sent me. I have written and asked for an electronic copy and once I receive it I will be glad to attach it for the use of any one on this forum.

Purpose of 134 : Addidavite of support

Refer to Section 4 :

There is nothing to fill here. This form was previously used for sponsoring immigration visa. Now, the form I-864 is used for that purpose for many years but USCIS has not changed the from I-134 for sponsoring non-
immigration visa.There is no bond to post for sponsoring visitor visa. Posting bond and holding the sponsor responsible for 3 years ws meant to prevent immigrants from becoming 'Public Charge' adn going onw welfare in United States.

Also refer to Section 5 and 6. I think I-134 should work. My lawyer asked me to fill out I-134.

Purpose of I-864 :

Employment Based :Affidavit of support, ONLY for an I-140 petition related to a business that is 5% or more owned by the applicat's family.
