I-134A: Can I have multiple supporters for an I-134A application?
In the last article about Form I-134A, I answered one of frequently asked questions from applicants. In this article, we'll explore the rules surrounding multiple I-134A supporters and provide guidance on whether it's acceptable to do so.
I-134A: Can one beneficiary have multiple supporters for its I-134A application?
Yes, you may have more than one supporter if your financial situation has changed or if you have found a new supporter who is willing to support your immigration application. However, because having multiple supporters does not necessarily guarantee approval of the application, it's important to ensure that the new supporter meets all of the eligibility requirements and provides all necessary documentation to support their financial capacity.
More importantly, one supporter should file a single I-134A and include the additional supporters and attach a statement explaining the intent to share responsibility to support the beneficiary. USCIS will assess these supporters’ collective ability to support a beneficiary. In other words, while you may have multiple supporters, those need to join one I-134A form for one beneficiary, rather than file a separate form.
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.
