    Eb1doc --

    so you didn't include anything like I-134 or I-864 form (affidavit of support) for your spouse?

    I am confused as to whether it is required. Some people here send it and some not. The university lawyer says it is not necessary, even given that my wife is currently on H-4 here and does not work.

    Please let me know. Thanks a lot --
