It comes in the mail. It's on thick fancy paper that looks like a certificate or something. Here's a picture.

After the USCIS receives your petition they will send you a NOA1 in the mail. The NOA1 means nothing other than that your petition has been received.

The NOA1 will have a case number assigned and you can go to the USCIS website and enter the number to check the status of your case. However, its also kind of pointless since typically the next activity you would see would be the NOA2 which would be the notice that the petition has been approved (or and RFE if something is lacking).

Once you receive NOA2, then the USCIS will send the petition to the NVC where they run background checks, then the NVC will forward it to the consulate.

After the consulate receives it they will send a packet to your finacee with instructions on how to apply for the visa and what documents and things are required next.

Okay how many of y'all stood by the mail box day after day till it arrived?!!! lmao! They only received it yesterday so I know I have a bit to wait......but if you can imagine ...my arms are crossed and my foot tapping impatiently! And yes I do realize that this is a hurry up and wait game. Still am so antsy. I have never filled out so many forms with corroborating evidence in my life. Feel as if I have applied to win the lottery. Funny thing is ....at the end of this hurry up and wait trial by fire....I will have won the lottery as far as I am concerned.

THANKS FOR THE INFO AND THE PIC>>>>>KNOW WHAT TO LOOK FOR NOW
