Little bit of back story(and link to old thread)
(Wife came here on K1, eventually got green card)
I filed out the I-130 form for my wife's daughter (age 3, living in Thailand currently) back in August of 2009. With help from this forum, I was able to get the instructions squared away, and everything went great.
I got notice of receipt (I-797C) in late August.
I then got notice of Approval (I-797) on September 18th, 2009.
On October 2nd, 2009, I got a packet for AOS Fee OLP.
I went online(which was new from when I did everything back in the day on my wife's visa) and submitted the $70 Dollars electronically.
I checked again 3 days later and everything said it was paid, so I Printed out a receipt and a Document Cover Cheat from www.immigrantvisas.state.gov
What it is telling me to do next is fill out another AOS, this time for the little one.
My question is which of these can I use?
With my wife, it was cut and dry. From the USCIS site, it looks like from the instructions for Preparing Affidavit of Support Forms, I have several to choose from : I-864, I-864EZ, I-864A, and I-864W.
I assume Id just use the plain jane I-864 form, but I wanted to check because of the circumstances of the child coming here, if anything else needed included, or if I could use one of the different I-684(EZ,A,W) forms?
I petitioned for the child to come here under 'based on a stepparent-stepchild relationship' for thr I-130 if that helps to determine what forms I need to work on next.
I tried searching for the info, but didnt find anything too specific to my situation. Im happy USCIS is using more internet based forms and payments instead of having to send in checks each time,but the new process is a bit confusing.
I assume what will happen is I will fill out one of the AOS forms(whichever applies)
Then I will send that along with the Document Cover Sheet I printed out.
What happens next?
Does paperwork go over to Thailand to where the child is staying that will need to be filled out?
(they sent in my AOS FEE OLP a copy of a DS-3032 form, which if she gets a copy of that form in Thailand, I dont know if they will really want a 3 year old signing it, or if some form of adult(grandparent,or I) can sign it for her.)
Any help in the matter be it info on which of the AOS docs to use and what happens next in the process once I send out the AOS paperwork and coversheet would be greatly appreciated.
