Yes.  But they do look for the co-sponsor to be immediate family (parents, siblings)

The confusion comes from the perceived difference between a co-sponsor and a joint-sponsor.  Certain agencies state that no co-sponsors are allowed because they consider co-sponsors to share the requirement (2 co-sponsors who make $20k each equals $40k in support).  That isn't allowed in K-1.  You can have joint-sponsors who meet the requirement on their own but as Hank mentioned, they strongly prefer immediate family.  This causes so many questions as most people do not differentiate between co and joint sponsors.

PHILIPPINES ONLY!!!  CFO (Commission on Filipinos Overseas) INFO - Can't leave home without it!

 

PDOS (Pre-Departure Registration and Orientation Seminar) is for ages 20-59.  Peer Counseling is for 13-19 years of age.

It is required to have the visa in their passport for PDOS and Peer Counseling.

 

GCP (Guidance and Counseling Program) is for K-1 Fiancee and IR/CR-1 spouse ONLY.

The deal with the K-1 is that the embassy is not required to accept a qualified co-sponsor (total at the whim of the CO), whereas with an immigrant visa the embassy is required to accept any qualified co-sponsor.

For an Immigrant Visa it is defined as joint sponsor not co sponsor 

YMMV
