What to expect after NOA2 (I-130 for spouse)

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Dear All,

I'm not quite familiar with the NVC process and beyond after I130 approval for my wife. I was looking at NVC process flow chart and I'm confused after that. I would like to mail all the paperworks from the US and not to have my wife take any burden of mailing anything to NVC.

Couple of questions from the flow chart:

1. Is this flow chart is current and valid?

2. Do I have to go through every steps in both tracks identified in the chart?

3. Is there any steps which would require NVC to send anything to my wife?

4. Can I assign myself (petitioner) as an agent for my wife's (beneficiary) immigrant visa application through DS3032? If I can, does it mean that I'll be receiving all future correspondence (petitioner) from NVC?

I would really appreciate help.

Thanks.........VJ rocks!

Welcome to VJ!

1. Yes, the flowchart is current.

2. Yes, you have to go through every step. You can do some shortcuts but you have to follow the order (and watch your timing, too).

3. NVC will send the DS3032 to your wife. She can assign you as her agent. You'll then get the paper work. But bear in mind that there are some forms she needs to sign. Did I answer your question?

4. Yes and yes.

If you look at my signature below, you'll see how our timeline went in terms of NVC stuff.

Good luck!

Thanks Cygnet.

For question 3: So my wife will only get DS3032 and once she signs that and make me her agent, then she will not receive any forms from NVC. Is this correct interpretition?

Also, if you know, could you please summarize the list of forms which I will require my wife to sign? So I can start preparing for them ahead of time.

I saw your timeline and it seems like your wife has assigned herself as an agent. That's the reason she would get forms from NVC and she would be mailing them back to NVC. Am I correct? I'm trying to understand the process.

Thanks again.

3. yes, I think she will only get the DS3032 and you get the rest.

By the way, I am the wife. :D Hubby doesn't have much time to spend on VJ...so I just report everything back to him. :D

I assigned myself as the agent because it would take as much time for the mail from NVC to get to me as it would to my husband as he lives out west.

So far, I've had to sign the DS3032 and the DS-230 Part 1 form. You can print these forms online and have her complete and mail them to you.

The only other thing I had to send them (but really you can do this part as it does not require any signature from your wife) is the Immigrant Visa Fee.

Congrats on the I 130!!!!!!!!! (F)(F):dance::dance::dance:

1) first of all your wife has to designate you as the agent...........so have her download the form or email a letter stating that you are her agent to the NVC- then you will start receiving everything here!!!

2)once that is all done with than you will need to follow both tracks( yes the flow chart is current and valid )..........one for the ds 230 visa and the other for the Affidavit of support.

3) all the steps you will be responsible for from here.

There are shortcuts that you can take here and there and they were posted by aussiwench (lorelle) but i cant seem to find them..........hopefully someone posts the thread here!!!!!!!!!

Good luck with everything!!!!!!!!!!! :D:D:D:D:star::star::star::star:(F)(F)(F)

Have a read of the link in my signature for NVC timesavers and James Shortcuts. Many on here have successfully saved time during the NVC process.

All the best to you

Thanks Lorelle. Also for your effort to put them here. I'll review them and I might ask you if I have any questions.

Lorelle or dadowanana :

Quick question: Since DS3032 will have a barcode provided by NVC. Would it be appropriate for me to email the form (blank one) to my wife and have her sign and assign me an agent? Or should I wait until she receives and I receive (the copy of DS3032) and have my wife send that to me, which I can forward to NVC?

What is your recommendation?

Thanks again......VJ rocks!

I put the various ways that it could be done in the other thread http://www.visajourney.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=13344

I had my husband scan and email his copy of the DS-3032 which I completed and was lucky enuf to be sending him a express package so I included the DS-3032 and he then posted it off. This was before the sending of choice of agent via email to NVC direct became popular amongst members. The odd member has had an issue with NVC not acknowledging that they received it but overall it has been a successful way of doing it. If I had to do it over I would simply email them my choice of agent...which doesnt involve the form at all.....then if I didnt get acknowledgment I would back it up by one of the other options. Emailing is definately worth it.
