What to do while waiting for NOA2? When to ask for financial letters?

Hello VisaJourney helpers,

We received NOA1 on Sept. 17th, and I'm wondering what I can do now to prepare my documents for when we receive NOA2. I have a few questions:

1. When do I send my fiance all originals from the NOA1? I have a huge folder with all of the originals sitting in the corner of the room. I have extra signed originals of the I-129F, G325A, pics, boarding passes, emails, etc all originally submitted once. I also have an extra photo copy of everything I sent in for NOA1.

2. What do I send to my fiance? and what do I send to USCIS?

3.. When should I ask for a letter from my bank stating my balance? What amount of time should it take for them to send it to me?

4. When should I ask for a letter from my employer stating my start date and salary? What amount of time should I expect it to take to complete.

5. When should I ask the IRS to send me tax transcripts? It's the end of 2008, so our W2's from this year will be here in Feb probably. Should I ask for 2007, 2006, and 2005? How much does that cost? Timeframe?

What else do I need to put together to prepare for NOA2?

Thanks, Mike and Joana

I'd like to hit the ground running and have everything prepared for when we get the green light.

1) After NOA2 it can take up to a month to pass through NVC on it's way to embassy, so wait until after NOA2.

2) Nothing is needed at this point by USCIS, unless they send out an RFE for something before NOA2

3) Bank info is NOT needed unless your income falls below 125% poverty line, then use bank ballance as an asset.

The directions included with I-134 are very old, USCIS has no reason to update them since USCIS has no application for that form.

The consulates tend to treat the I-134 like a mini-I-864 as so prefer the same financial evidence as the I-864.

In our case this what the I-134 included.

  • I-134 signed and notarized.

  • SIMPLE Tax transcripts from the IRS for past 3 years, (Redundant for the (1040,W2,1099) but are free from the IRS http://www.irs.gov/faqs/faq1-6.html

  • Photo copy of IRS form 1040, and W2s for past 3 years (Not necessary if you provide the transcripts)

  • Letter from my employer stating annual salary, job responsibility, and that is full time, on company letterhead.

  • Photo copies of past month or so of pay stubs up to a few weeks before the interview.
My income was well above the povertyline so I did not include any asset data (LIKE BANK STATEMENTS or property values).

If your income exceeds 125% of the povertyline when counting yourself, prospective immigrant and any dependents, then don't bother with assets (401K, Bank balance, Stocks etc..), it is just extra un-needed data to provide, the consular officer is most concerned with INCOME.

4) Within a month before the visa interview, at this time prepare an I-134 and send to fiancee for interview.

5) Transcripts are good, IF interview falls sometime after the tax deadline next April they may ask a copy of your 2008 return.

-- You could wait after NOA2 or you could also sent them as early as now, your choice!

2. What do I send to my fiance? and what do I send to USCIS?

--- Nothing at this time unless there is RFE. You might want to gather more evidence of ongoing relationship while waiting --- that's the best you could do for now!

3.. When should I ask for a letter from my bank stating my balance? What amount of time should it take for them to send it to me?

--- not needed if above poverty line.

4. When should I ask for a letter from my employer stating my start date and salary? What amount of time should I expect it to take to complete.

--- Ask the employer letter the moment you have your NOA2 approval and send them out to your fiancee. Time depends..

5. When should I ask the IRS to send me tax transcripts? It's the end of 2008, so our W2's from this year will be here in Feb probably. Should I ask for 2007, 2006, and 2005? How much does that cost? Timeframe?

---You could call for IRS transcripts i think before you submitted everything to your fiancee. Ask for those previous years.. no cost! There's 1-800 number to call..

What else do I need to put together to prepare for NOA2?

-- all things mentioned above!

Good luck for waiting!

here is the IRS number...1-800-829-1040

You can have it in a week.

Ok, I just got off the phone from ordering tax transcripts for the past 3 years.

That's one thing out of the way. Thanks! What can I work on next?

Visit the PI regional forum and read the K-1 guide sticky topic at the top. Manilla has a much different process for K-1 visas. You will want to familiarize yourself with the steps there.

It's best to wait for affidavit and supporting docs until after you are approved as chances are the Embassy will want to see current documents (paystubs..etc).
