The embassy requested a DV Lottery Winner to provide a completed Affidavit of Support Form (Form 1-134) to ensure that the DV Lottery Winner will not be a public charge. Will the sponsor (signator/sponsor of the Form 1-134) also be liable for any medical and educational costs incurred by the DV Lottery Winner while they are here in USA? The sponsor/signator of the Form 1-134 only specified that they will provide room and board and necessities for duration of stay. Please advise. Thank you.
The sponsor can limit the amount of responsibility that they wish to take on ... just fill in page 2 carefully.
