Hi all,

Really need some help here please. I have been directed to several sites, however I am getting conflicting information and I am confused and I don't want to make any mistakes. I am hoping that some people who have recently gone through the process can provide some assistance please. My case is now at NVC for the I-130, IR-1/CR-1. Here is what I need help with please:


1. Of all the documents for NVC- AOS, IV packet etc which documents can be certified copies and which must be originals? (marriage certificate, police certificate, military, birth certificate, etc. etc. etc.)
2. For documents that can be certified copies, what must the certified copies entail? If the copies are notarized and stated that they are true copies of the original with notarial signature is this sufficient? Must certified copies have apostitles?
3. Of our marriage documents, we had everything translated, the birth certificate used, the passports, the marriage certificate, the police record etc, all translated by a certified translator with a copy of the original and all with apostitles. If they ask for originals, do we want to send these originals or the original marriage certificate with out the translation and without the apositles?


Also, I need clarification on exacly how everything is sent in. I understand I have to wait for our case # from NVC and also the invoice number so that we can use the system through NVC to make the payments. Do you make payment for everything all at once at NVC and then send in all the papers together (bar codes showing proof, choice of agent, and all the packages for AOS and IV packet?


I know I am asking for a lot of information, I just don't want to delay the process by doing anything wrong. I have done my research, however I am just not sure which research is current and which is out of date. So anyone that recently went through NVC who can provide insight and help walk me through this process, it woud be greatly appreciated. Any suggestions your have any do's and don't, please include anything you think would be helpful for me to know. Also, anyone petitioning for their spouse from Turkey out there, can you tell me please approximately how long from when your case was assigned at NVC to when you were given your interview date and then how long until your interview please?



Thanks all VJ members for your help and I do apologize if I am requesting information that has been posted on here multiple times before.



Take care everyone!

She had to send it to him.(she had it in the united states. after they received the book Then embassy put him in administrative process.

Siz sanirim hangi evraklari ne sekilde hazirlamaniz gerektigiyle ilgili bilgi almak istiyorsunuz su sekilde anlatmaya calisayim eger sorunuz olur ise benim msn eklersiniz yada email atabilirsiniz

sizin su islemleri yaptiginizi farzediyorum
1- ANK ile baslayan case numarasi ve INN numarasini aldiniz
2-Gerekli olan ucretleri odeniz 420 usd ve 88 usd
3- DS-3032 agent formunu yolladiniz

Eger yukarida yazdiklarim ile ilgilide sorulariniz olursa cekinmeden sorabilirsiniz

Gelelim Sizin hazirlamaniz gereken evraklara

DS-230 form: Part 1 doldurulup imzalanacak
DS-230 Part 2 dolduralacak fakat imzalanmayacak

Sabik kaydi :arsiv kayidi yoktur olarak alicaksiniz.belgeyi aldiginiz adliye sarayindan apostil yaptirip ingilizceye cevirisini yeminli tercumandan yapicaksiniz
Vukuatli nufus:Tum aile bireylerinin icinde yer aldigi olani alacaksiniz kaymakamliktan apostil ve tercumesi
Pasaport : gecerli olan bir pasaport yazili olan sayfalarin fotokopisi apostil veya ceviriye gerek yok
Vize tipi foto:4 adet vize tipi 5x5 arka fon beyaz fazla gulumsemeyin
Evlilik cuzdani :orjinali yolluyacaksaniz sadece apostil yaptiracaksiniz ama ben orjinali yollamanizi tavsiye etmiyorum kaybolma ihtimaline karsi yazili olan tum sayfalarin fotokopisi noterden asli gibidir yapilacak valilikten apostil ve tercumesi
iliskinizi kanitlayici belgeler: emailler ucak biletleri ailece fotolar basbasa iken fotolar telefon gorusmeleri mektuplar otel rezarvasyonlari faturalar vb. cok olmasi gerekli degil ama yollamanizi tavsiye ediyorum
Yolluyacaginiz her evraktanda 1 set copy alip icine koyun 1 set copy de kendinize saklayin

odemeyi yaptiktan sonra NVC nin sayfasina girip ordan barkodlu sayfayi ve odemenin yapildigina dair print almaniz gerekiyor

Link https://ceac.state.g...ice/signon.aspx

evraklarla beraber bu printleride yollayacaksiniz Bu arada siz ve esiniz evraklari yollamadan once yukarida verdigim linke girerek ANK ve INN numarasiyla giris yaptiginda yapmis oldunuz odemelerle ilgili bilgi cikacak orda her iki odeme icinde PAID yazi goruluyorsa evraklari yollayabilirsiniz demektir

NOT : Yolluyacaginiz her evragin sol ust kosesine ANK... ile basliyan numaranizi yazmalisiniz hatta yolluyacaginiz fotonun arkasina adinizi soyadinizi ve ANK ile basliyan numaranizida yazin ANK ile birlikte sadece numara degil tabi
