this is a freaking out post!
last week my wife had the interview, and while the interview went pretty well, still got 221g for proof of domicile and her old non-immigrant visa, but they still kept the passports.
few days later we filed the proof of domicile and the old visa. but then 2 days later they sent the passport back to us without the visa and requested also military records(which i also submitted today on ceac)
how bad is this that they sent back the passports?? i am freaking out!!

No need to freak out!  Just send them what they want and continue to contact the consulate.

Could be a mistake or they expect it to take some time

Unfortunately it wasn’t a mistake because when they sent back the passports it came with 221g that mentioned one more document to submit. 
*for now  I submitted all requested docs.

 

i am nervous that they went throw my proof of domicile and sent back the passports because they didn’t find it to be convincing.
