When sending the K-1 and or AOS forms to my clients for signatures, I make it a point in my cover letter to warn them to make sure the notary actually signs his or her section of the affidavit of support (whether it be an I-134 or an I-864) and “NOT� to let the notary instead use a California All-purpose Acknowledgment.

I once had an affidavit rejected (but it was so long ago now that I don’t recall if it was an I-134 rejected at the Consulate or an I-864/AOS submission rejected by the legacy INS) for this very thing, and ever since then I’ve made it a point to warn my clients about this so it won’t happen again.
Hi:

In the FWIW department, I find the term "legacy INS" being used in place of "former INS" to a pet peeve. Look up the definition of "legacy."

It seems to me that the "Legacy INS" would be the USCIS and the portions of the USICE & USCBP that were part of the "INS".

I have observed that the term seems to have orginated with the CBP people who were rolled into the former Customs Service instead of becoming a seperate agency like CIS and ICE.

Oh not to worry, we got the I-864 notarized specifically, THEN got the
all-purpose acknowledgement to "cover" everything else, just to be
sure.
