Just to make sure, any person who is sponsoring another person to get into the USA needs to file this I-864 Affidavit of Support along with the petition, is that correct?

That is what I have read about the process. The person must be able to show that he or she can pay any costs needed for the sponsored person to live in the United States.

Yes, that is the meaning of "sponsoring," to my understanding. You can petition for a family member without it, I think, but they will probably need to show that they have support (either personal or through a relative in the US).

Often, applicants get confused with the Form I-864 and Form I-134. The I-134 (affidavit of support) is not a legally binding affidavit, it is used for non-immigrant visas. Until you marry (and subsequently file for Adjustment of status), the non US Citizen fiancé(e) will hold a non immigrant visa. This allows them to get into the US before having a legal relationship with the US Citizen fiancé(e).

Whereas the I-864 (Affidavit of Support) is a legally binding contract proving that the sponsor will be financially responsible for the immigrant in the event the immigrant attempts to benefit from certain federal aid programs. This form is filed at the Adjustment of Status part of the journey (after the Non US Citizen has traveled to the States and got married).

I am glad you posted this, anderson24, because I did not know that there was more than one support form. It will be helpful for others to see this also, I am certain.
