I used it for the 3032 and 864 and it worked like a champ. Make sure that you follow the instructions exactly as they are written (no deviations). I am going to use it for the DS230 also.

Does anyone reccomend using James shortcuts? Does it expedite the process or can it delay the process all together? Can anyone who used it post thier experience??? Thanks.........

I am using them right now. See my timeline, it is moving along pretty quickly , they already have my AOS bill and ds3032, next is affidavit and IV bill, and it looks like everything has been expedited but IV Bill is generated randomly , so we'll see. Wew are keeping our fingures crossed.

Good luck to you too.

It can save you quite a bit of time as you are self generating as soon as NVC generates...Not having to wait for mailing time. I have to date not noted anyone that has had their process slowed down due to using the shortcuts.

You can find me on FBI
