I'm Considering petitioning for a K-1 visa for my girlfriend and i'm looking to gather information / advice

So i've known this girl for about 3 years now and we've met a couple of times. This whole year we've been in love and talk constantly every day but she's from colombia and that raises a huge problem because the Colombia tourist visa Interview line is over 700 days. I make enough money to sponsor her although due to heavy payments/investments lately (but temporarily) my current balance (though not negative ) might not reflect that (24k in the bank i think it was ? ) my weekly/yearly income for sure does. Anyways I was thinking of petitioning her to get a K-1 visa to bring her over to see if she likes the country to stay but i read she'll be stuck here for a good year or more after without being able to leave or see her family again ouch! then the other visa if i get married to her over there i heard takes super long ? but is that one more viable for her if she wants to have the freedom to go back and forth ? I myself being from an immigrant and hispanic family understand the need to go back home a few days and see the family. I also was wondering if it's possible for her to apply for the tourist Visa, while i petition her for the K-1 visa and at the same time the student visa ( the F - 1 i think ? ) so she can come develop her English earlier before moving if she decides to after experiencing the country.

Also bonus question, she has some minor debt ( at least here it would be ) she got scammed on years ago and she's working on paying off someone else's debt basically, it's less than 2k dollars. Would this deny her any visa ? I offer to pay it for her but she refuses to let me help her with it unless absolutely necessary because she wants to be responsible for her mistake.

NVC Case FE Review note

Hi everyone, my family and I are under the F3 category and we just received a notice from NVC that our documents have been approved and that we are Documentarily Qualified. My only concern is this message that we received today in addition to the acceptance: ​ " [Name of petitioner] does not meet the minimum income requirement to sponsor the intending immigrants for this case. The consular officer will make a decision regarding this requirement at the time of the interview. For more information, please visit . To avoid delays, an additional Affidavit of Support Form I-864 for a joint sponsor may be submitted." ​ We already have a petitioner and a household sponsor (the household sponsor's income is above the required level), but still unsure why we received this. Has anyone else received this message? All of our documents say "Approved" on NVC. Does this mean we have to find another sponsor? Can we show the consular officer our
