Joint sponsor filled out incorrect affidavit of support

My fiancé and I ad the interview yesterday at the Embassy in Bogota, Colombia didn’t go as expected had a small issue. At the end of the interview the counselor officer said everything was OK but that my joint sponsor was not supposed to fill out I-134 , but rather I-864 .  The counselor officer was pleasant and, asked us too complete I-864 after we leave the embassy. The instructions  were to fill it out with the joint sponsor information and email it to an email at the embassy. I was so confused I thought the I-864 was intended to be filled out once my fiancé reached the United States and applied for adjustment of status.. obviously I did not want to question the counselor officer and upset her, so just agreed and walked away.


I’m still a bit nervous, however I’m staying optimistic. One, they kept my fiancé‘s passport, typically this is done when they approve your visa and will put the visa inside the passport. So, wouldn’t see why they would keep his passport for no reason. Two, she looked very confident with our case, and look like she was just trying to help us. I don’t think they would send me home to fill out this paperwork to send it to them and then just tell me it’s denied. I think if there were other reasons to deny us they would just say don’t even worry about filling out I-864 , Since he will be denied on other grounds. Maybe not in those words exactly lol but something similar.  Does anyone on here have any insight? Please help

I will just do what they asked you to do. There is no benefit in doubting them. 


The fact that they keep the passport is certainly a good sign. Yes, that means the case is approvable, just pending whatever other paperwork you need to complete and send to them. If the case does not look approvable, they would return the passport.
