Where to File

You must sign Form I-134 in your full name. (Note: Signing Form I-134 is under penalty of perjury under U.S. law).  For this reason, it is not necessary to sign Form I-134 before a notary, nor to have your signature notarize after you sign it.

Where you submit the form depends on whether the alien you are sponsoring is in or outside the United States and what type of application is being submitted.  See the instructions provided with the corresponding application for detailed information on where to submit this affidavit of support.

Additional Information for Completing Your Form:

If you submit Form I-134 on paper: Be sure to sign the form at Signature of Sponsor. The fillable version of Form I-134 now includes “Don’t forget to sign!” messages and an arrow pointing to the signature box as reminders for when you print the completed form for mailing. USCIS rejects any unsigned Form I-134. Having to return it to you for a signature will delay processing of your affidavit.
