I-134A: Can I File Another Form with a Different Sponsor?

You may submit multiple I-134A forms

In the last article about Form I-134A, I answered one of frequently asked questions from applicants. But your concerns still remain: whether you can submit Form I-134A more than once, and whether it will impact your chances of approval. Don't worry! In this article, we'll explore the rules surrounding multiple I-134A submissions and provide guidance on whether it's acceptable to do so.

I-134A: Can I file multiple I-134A forms?

In general, there is no restriction on submitting multiple I-134A forms. However, it's important to keep in mind that each form must contain accurate and up-to-date information, and must be accompanied by all required documentation. Submitting multiple I-134A forms with conflicting information or incomplete documentation may raise red flags and could potentially hurt your chances of approval. It's also worth noting that each I-134A form is valid for only one application, so if you're applying for multiple visas or for a visa renewal, you'll need to submit a new form for each application. Ultimately, the key is to ensure that all of your I-134A submissions are complete, accurate, and consistent with your immigration goals.

I-134A: Can I file another form with a different sponsor?

Yes, you may submit another I-134A with a different sponsor if your financial situation has changed or if you have found a new sponsor who is willing to support your immigration application. However, because having multiple sponsors does not necessarily guarantee approval of the application, it's important to ensure that the new sponsor meets all of the eligibility requirements and provides all necessary documentation to support their financial capacity. Additionally, if you have already submitted an I-134A with a previous sponsor, you should include an explanation in your new submission as to why you are now using a different sponsor. Keep in mind that each I-134A form is valid only for the specific visa application it was submitted with.

Better Way to Track Your USCIS Case Status

Download the Lawfully Case Tracker app on your phone. Enter a receipt number of your case and fill out all information including the filing date, the visa type, and the reviewing service center. Once you register a case, you don't need to visit the USCIS website anymore. Instead, the app will automatically give you a push notification when your USCIS case status is updated.


When you receive notifications, the app not only presents you with a USCIS message for your current case status, but also supplements the meaning of the message and what to expect in the next step.


Whereas the USCIS website simply displays and updates the status of your application, the Lawfully case tracker app obtains comprehensive information on your case for you: 1) the smart app predicts the expected decision date and processing times of your application, based on the data of the same visa type we have collected over the years. 2) it even generates the probability of the approval and RFE rate of your application. If you subscribe to Lawfully's Case Analysis Pro, you can register up to 10 cases and monitor "Your Ranking" among other users of the same visa type so that you are able to check how many applicants are ahead of you before the decision of your case.
