Hi, folks!

I filled out an immigrant petition for my mom and we had her I-130 form approved. I paid the $ 88,00 fee and my mom filled out a form saying that her papers can be sent to me as well as to her. But it has been about 20 days since I paid the fee and I didn't receive any other package with instructions, just the instructions in the website where I paid the fee, which seem very confusing to me. I know I have to fill out the affidavity of support I-864 form and the I-485, but that website directed me to fill out a form EZI-485. Seems like our sponsor is not supposed to fill out this form.

Anyways... I was expecting to receive better instructions in a package and now I am lost. Can somebody help me understand what to do? :bonk:

Thanks

Is it you on your signature?
I can the person in your signature is not USC.
Once your paid AOS and IV fees, don't wait for any package.
Just gather all documents for AOS and IV to send in.
Once payment status is PAID, there will be a link on each invoice to show you what needs to do and send.

ngvuanh,

I paid the AOS fee online and didn't receive any other clear instructions after that. Do I go ahead and fill out any forms? Which ones? What is the form DS-230??

Thanks.

the i485 is only for those adjusting in the US, not through consular processing as your mother is. did you already send the i864?

No, I didn't send the I-864 yet. And my mom didn't receive any instructions about what to do in Brazil.

Does she have to fill out and send the form DS-230 from Brazil now at the same time I send I-864 from the US?? To what address is she supposed to send the DS-230?

I was expecting that one of us would receive a package with instructions from NVC with her process number. We only received the invoice to pay the Affidavity, which I did. :blink:

Priscilla, I feel your pain. I am trying to bring my mom from Brazil to the USA as well and it's been a very confusing ride. The NVC's website isn't helpful at all and you call them and they tell you to go to the website. I paid the $88 today and I will go ahead and print out the I-864 form off the internet and get it ready. I will be sending this to the NVC in New Hampshire office since that's where they told me to send the stuff. Now, your mom in Brazil needs to start getting all her documents together. A friend of mine from Oklahoma just brought his wife from Brazil. I spoke to her and she said she went ahead and set up an appointment with the doctor approved by the Consulate. Her husband told her to go ahead and get it done just in case. She also had to go to a Federal Police as well as Civil Police to get a "NADA CONSTA" letters to prove she wasn't criminal. Then, she had to mail (ORIGINAL NOT COPIES) both letters from the police PLUS her birth certificate. There are more documents involved but I don't know for sure. My friend is going to send me a list he sent his wife and I can definitely let you know. About the form DS-230 I guess you will fill it out once I-864 is approved but who knows. I will find out if that form is necessary and who fills it out.

So far just wait about 2 weeks to see if you get anything from the NVC. If you don't, I highly recommend you to call them back and see what's next. Just make sure you send the form I-864 filled out by YOU first. If you are using another sponsor than your husband or someone else has to fill another form out. But you have to be the first sponsor to send the AOS. After you mail it and they approve it, they will let you know what to do next.
Please, keep me informed as well because I am just as lost as you are and I am in desperate need of help. I do not enjoy dealing with immigration any longer. I am exhausted.

Well boa sorte...

Thanks for your help, guys!

I have one more question. Here my husband has his salary, I have mine and our joint sponsor (my mom-in-law) has hers. And me and my husband file our taxes together. I know I have to fill out a form for me as the main sponsor, and it is form I-864, and my MIL will file the same form separate with her documents, right? But what about my husband? Does he have to fill out a separate form, too? If so, is it a I-864 or a I-864A?

You file I-864.
If your individual income doesn't meet PG, put your husband individual income in question 24 on your I-864.
In that case, he file I-864A
If you both income doesn't meet PG either, your MIL will file I-864 as Joint Sponsor.
