    First of all, relax and take a breath. It will be ok. You
    can appeal the decision, if you are not approved, however,
    what was checked off on your paper sounds pretty standard. I
    believe that you can, in fact, have an I-134 entered into
    your file. I would call immigration again, and ask, AGAIN.
    However, if they say no, I wouldn't stress too much. If you
    don't have a criminal record, I wouldn't anticipate any
