I'm reading the guides here and following th Ling Che's shortcuts;but I guess NVC stage makes me very nervous ;thus don't understand what I'm reading....

Our AOS fee (70$) is shown as as PAID.

IV Feeis paid ,but still IN PROGRESS...

When do we send I-864 package which includes all the financial proof stuff?

should I wait till 400$ is cleared out as PAID,or should I send now since 70$ is PAID already???

I just don't wanna be late for anything.....

thnx...

You could wait to send both the AOS along with the other docs DS230 etc; I sent mine in immediately after paying that fee along with the cover page, 3 tax return W2's, employment letter.

Usually the AOS fee goes with the I-864 package, and IV bill goes with the DS-230 package. It never let us pay both of them and send both packages at the same time. It's just dif to everybody. But it's OK if you send one of them first and then the other one. And chill... ur not gonna be late with anything... just the faster you do it the closer you get to your hunny ;) But being in a hurry might cause mistakes and get to RFE's... You don't want that, so take ur time and go over everything to make sure it's in order :thumbs:

While "do what you gotta do" may work for some...it's not the best advice when dealing with NVC.

I'm not sure where the confusion is, but the guide states that you should send in your I-864 after you have paid the fee and received acknowledgement from the payment site. Same with your IV packet, only after it's been confirmed as paid. That said, if you've posted the payments (but not received confirmation) and you know that (a. the funds are available and b. all of your routing or credit card information is correct) then the risk of sending your form (IV or AOS) would be very small.

It's important to understand that NVC, along with being bureaucratic, is also usually overwhelmed with petitions and applications. They (NVC) as a rule of thumb, aren't able to cope with forms arriving before they're expected. They will NOT review an AOS packet or IV packet until the fees have been paid. Sending forms late is usually not a problem, but sending forms before fees have been paid, could result in your process being slowed down because they lose the package, lose a document while it's sitting around waiting for your fee to be paid, or they send it back to you. There's a very specific sequence of events that must occur in order. Yes, you can send in your IV before your AOS, but you can't send in your IV before the fee has been paid.

As long as it shows paid, they are ready to receive the AOS package. Just print the forms, fill them out and print the receipt and cover sheet from the website and off you go...

VERY cool!

It's better to be a cautious as you were, than to waste time trying to rush the system more than it can handle.

Good Luck, I hope you will be re-united very soon.
