K1 Interview and Affidavit of Support

Timeline

Anna had her interview today at the Polish Consulate. (Anna is from Belarus.) The first step of the process was having her paperwork checked by a consulate worker before the actual meeting with the CO. She was asked for the Affidavit of Support (I-134) but mistakenly only showed the worker my financial records, without handing in the I-134. The worker handed back the records, and never asked about the I-134 again.

During the interview the CO never mentioned it. She finsihed the interview and was told to return to the Consulate tomorrow at 8:00, as they need 24 hours for their "internal checks," whatever that means.

Upon return to the hotel, Anna realized that she still had the I-134. I called the Consulate and was assured by another employee, that if the CO did not ask for it, it was not needed.

I had always been under the impression that the Affidavit of Support was essential to this process.

Is it possible that they will issue a visa without this document, or, as I am a bit of a worrier, could this be a sign that they don't have any intention of issuing her a visa tomorrow?

Moscow doesn't require it but it is suggested to bring it.

If they need something they will ask, don't worry about that. And if they don't ask, they don't need it. Dont' worry.

My fiance´s visa was approved and I did not have to show the affidavit of support or any other evidence. The consul simply interviewed us and asked questions mainly directed at me (USC petitioner). While you must have the affidavit of support ready and must make sure to meet the minimum poverty guidelines, there are many consulates that do not ask for this paperwork at the time of interview.
