Hi,

I'm paying for the AOS tonight for sponsoring my parents and call NVC tomorrow morning to confirm they combined the two cases together.

Now, I have a couple questions, hopefully you'll explain them to me?

1) After I pay the AOS fee online, do I have to send out the AOS package? How can I get the AOS package?

2) Looking at your timeline, looks like you paid the fee for DS-230 before you sent DS-230 package. Who is the person sending out that DS-230, me or my parents sending directly from other country to NVC? Are there any supporting documents that needed to included with DS-230?

Thanks.

Quang

Do you have a question?

yes, actually.

So, during this whole process: will my mom also receive a copy of any immigration letter send to me?

I sent out the petition the same day after i was being naturalized on 11/14 by express mail.

Mail arrived in Chicago lock box on 11/16 noon.

I received email/text notification yesterday 11/18 that it's being route to Calif.

I was given the receipt and case number, but I was advised to not check it online until I received hard copy from the mail within a week.

When I get the hard copy, will my mom also get a copy in Indonesia? just curious.

No she does not get any copy unless you used her adress as mailing address. Even thought they said not to check for updates, you can still check out of curiosity to see what is going on..that was what I did. I also filed for my the same day I got naturalized. I paid the IV fee today and now I am waiting d police report which shoudl be enroute to me so that I can send out her DS-230.
