Advice on how to change a clerical error. Filed with Consular for DS260 but need DS160 Status

Hello again Visa Journey Community,


My Fiancee and I have been approved by USCIS for the K-1 Visa and we are in the final Consular stage of the process. She is a Ugandan citizen but is processing through Nairobi Kenya.


Our formal legal team committed a clerical error with our online application petition with the Embassy in Kenya. Even though our USCIS paperwork is correct and has us for K-1 Visa and DS-160 meeting status, we were errantly registered as a DS-260 immigrant Visa filing and our ais.usvisa account has us stuck registered as a DS-260 applicant. We are pretty much dead in the water as far as progress goes until this status error is fixed and made the proper DS160 application embassy meeting status. 


Any advice? Attain a new lawyer? Keep emailing/calling the embassy ourselves? Contact an Ombudsman? Call USCIS customer service? Other?


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
