few questions about my petition.

Hello, I don't know if these questions have been answered in this forum already. My fiance has already received a letter from the U.S. Embassy in London with the instructions on what to do next for his interview. I have never received a case number or a letter from the NVC regarding my petition, but I got my approval letter from USCIS a month ago. Is that case number something I am supposed to have?

Also, I know the DS-160 is something my fiance has to fill out himself but he really needs my help in filling out forms online. Would I be able to do that myself or does he really need to sign it himself electronically? I guess I am wondering whether or not I can print it out and send it to him to sign or if it's all online.

You do need your case # for correspondence with the embassy and the DS 160 if I remember correctly. I received a letter from the NVC with the case number on it. If you don't get that (like many others) you can call them to get it.

You can help your fiance complete the DS160. We did it completely online, I helped him. There is a spot for you to list your name as the person who helped complete the form. We both logged in and reviewed it completely before he electronically signed it and submitted it. From what I remember it was stated that the beneficiary is supposed to be the one to click the submit button, but I am not sure if that is really true or even matters. We did all of this in 2014 with the Jamaican Embassy. Maybe its different elsewhere.

His letter from the embassy should have the new case number on it.

You will eventually get that same case number info in a letter from NVC, but they aren't very quick about sending it.

You can fill out his form and save it for him to open with the password you created. He can review it and click submit. Or give him a chance to take responsibility for his own visa application, then you log in and check it over for completeness.

Thanks for answering and for describing to me how the DS-160 is like. I will try to do it the same way you did it.
