Usually the USC or their lawyer will get a notice saying USCIS got the petition and one saying that the petition was approved. These are the NOA1 and NOA2. Once the embassy gets the package, they usually send the beneficiary (depending on the embassy) packet 3 and packet 4 (our terms :) ). Packet 3 has the paperwork for beneficiary to actually apply for the visa, info on how to schedule the medical and interview etc. Packet 4 typically has the interview date. This isn't gospel though, as different embassies do things differently. Once you get to that stage, find others from your country or click on embassy info above for how your particular embassy does things.

Most mail sent out of the Nigerian Embassy makes it to the beneficiary. Please check the Embassy info for times and days he can visit for info and send your SO to the Embassy to pick up the packets.

I did not read your timeline, but I am assuming your case is complete at the NVC? You do not want to send your SO to the embassy until your case is complete at the NVC and the NVC has forward your case to the Embassy.
