Posted 07 March 2010 - 09:49 AM

Good morning,

I filed an I-130 petition for my step-son and was received by USCIS on December 4th of 2009. The petiton was approved by the USCIS on March 1st, 2010. I am confused as to what happens next so if someone could be so kind to explain the next steps, I would greatly appreciate it. I read something about I-864, DS-3032, DS-230, but would like a more detailed timeline and detailed info so I know what to expect and get prepared.

Thanks,
Mike

Our Petition is currently on it's way to NVC or their already.

I have a couple questions that hopefully someone can answer.
According to the NVC flow chart:

Can my step son put me (the petitioner) as his Agent? Is this normal?

I understand that my step-son will need to fill out and sign the DS-3032 and DS-230 Part 1 forms. Currently my wife is visiting her son (my step-son) and family. Can I have her print these out, fill them out and have him sign them and bring them back to the U.S. with her? I can then hand write the barcode on them or print out the barcode and paste it on?

Also, I understand that the following will be required of my step-son:
2 passport photos
photocopy of his valid passport biographic data page (does it need to be a certified copy?)
No police certificate (he is 9)
A certified copy of his birth certificate
No marriage certificate (never married)
No Marriage Termination Docs
No Militray records
No prison records

Should I have my wife gather this information while she is there and bring back with her also? Does this info get sent to NVC or to Consulate in beneficiaries country?

All your help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much,
Mike

Here is what you need.........

nce your case is assigned NVC Case Number and after registering your emails you will get emails and here is the document that i used....

Also check the Visajourney.com for more posts...specific to I-130 progress and NVC status.....

http://www.visajourn....186733&st=1725

NVC Center

Once your case is received by the NVC they will each be given a case number. Once that happens you will have to give your email address to the NVC as well as the email address for your parents.

Tips for NVC

Once you know that the I-130 have been sent to the NVC you can start calling them, I did this every day until I got the case number.

NVC phone number 603-334-0700


You need to speak to a officer so skip the automated service by pressing 1 then 5 after you get through.

Once you have the case number you need to give the operator the email addresses for you and your parents.

Next you need to email the NVC the DS-3230 choice of agent. Use this template for the email.

http://www.visajourn....l_DS-3032_form

DS-3032

http://www.state.gov...ation/80023.pdf

Next you will get a email from the NVC telling you the petitioner that you need to pay the AOS fee bill it will give you the link to the NVC payment site where you will pay the fee using a credit card or debit card.

You only need to pay $70.00 once as both your parents cases are linked and they only charge once.

Once that is paid you will print out a barcode coversheet from the payment site for each parent you will need to attach one to each AOS packet that you have made for each parent

I-864 AOS Packet

See the link below for full details of what you need to send with the I-864

http://www.uscis.gov....0045f3d6a1RCRD

You will receive another email telling you that the DS-3032 has been accepted and telling you that the DS-230 IV fee bill should now be paid. $400.00 each parent. You will go back to the NVC payment site to do this.

[/size]

2 sets of Affidavit of Support

Once the AOS is paid and you have printed the Barcode coversheet, you need to download the I-864 and complete attatch all the documents required and then mail it to NVC. The full instructions on what you need to do are on the NVC payment site on the right hand side of the page, just click the link.

It can take two weeks + before the DS-3032 is entered into the NVC system. Use the time to gather together all the paperwork for the DS-230 so that once the DS-3032 has been accepted you can pay the IV Bill and then mail the DS-230

DS-230

http://travel.state....pdf/DS-0230.pdf

Again once it shows as paid you will print out another barcode coversheet to include with the DS-230 for each parent. You will need to include Originals of the following documents for each parent.

BIRTH CERTIFICATES
ADOPTION PAPERS
MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE
MARRIAGE TERMINATION (DIVORCE)
COURT RECORDS
MILITARY RECORDS
POLICE CERTIFICATE
2 PHOTOGRAPHS
Beneficiaries Photocopy of Valid Passport Biographic Data Page
PETITIONER MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE FOR ALL MARRIAGES
PETITIONER BIRTH CERTIFICATE

You can use the time that the I-130 is being processed to gather all the above document together so that you have them ready to send as soon as you get to each step at NVC.

Once all the paperwork has been received at NVC they will review your parents cases this can take anything from a few days to a few weeks.

Once the review is complete then you will get a email telling you that the case is complete and has been forwarded to the embassy in your parents country.

You will also get a interview letter telling you the date of the interview and a link to the Embassy website with instructions on how to get the medical done and instructions for the interview.

What you need to do is, you send one complete set of original documents with the Barcode coversheet of one parent and then for the other parent you have to attach to their Barcode Copversheet a photocopy of the original document and write on it "Original Held In Case # LND2009****** " You must do that for every document that is not the original.

Also when you come to paying the AOS Fee Bill you only need to pay this once, when you go on-line to pay it you will see that it says "includes another case" and it will link to other parent's case so that you can print out the Barcode Coversheet for them both.

Once NVC get the DS230 they review all the paperwork and once this is done the case is then complete and you will get a interview date and the case paperwork will be forwarded to the embassy. You will then get a email with the interview instructions and instructions for the medical.

You can find a list of what to include here:
