NVC Special Instructions
I had sent them the entire package 52 days ago, so it took them close to 60 days to review my case. Here are my questions:
***At the time, I had filed an extension with the IRS for 2013 tax year and I had included that extension in the NVC package! I had sent them my most recent Federal tax return which was for 2012. Now, they're asking for the 2013 Federal tax return which will be available in 3 days due to the extension coming to an end. Why asking for the 2013 tax return, and at the same time, ask for a reason for not filing for the very same year?
***My case number was NOT originally eligible for e-processing, yet the instructions on the checklist I have received today indicate both addresses for e-mailing as well as postal mailing of the new I-864 to the NVC. Do you think I would be safe if I just e-mailed the new AOS instead? Which way would it be processed faster?
***Am I correct to assume that the [x]s without an explanation should be disregarded altogether?
Thank you so much for taking the time to read and respond to my call for advice.
