Visa Approved, but require joint sponsor

I wanted to ask if anyone else experienced this situation before.

They gave us a letter with checklist of what we should dend them together with passport:


It says that my joint sponsor should fill out i134, but if they have spouse included in income than spouse should fill in a 864a.

My mom's income is enough by herself, but because she filed jointly with my dad and so I assume she needs to account my fiance, herself, and my Dad as her count so meaning need to meet 3 household members. Her income is still enough, but I guess more the merrier if include my dad's and it particularly also marks send spouse's 864a.

I looked at my uncle's who had similar case, but his was for his wife's son and since they were in same household he just supplied a 864a for his wife.

Online it says 864a should be used only with 864 and not mentioned about using with i134, but clearly that is the instructions. So I wanted to ask should I just submit a I134 for my mom and a I864a for my dad? Or to be safe I should send a I134 and 864 for my mom and a 864a for my dad? Will they refuse my files because I send too many forms? If i864 is not needed?
