The guides are not very clear on the steps to take after the petition has been approved and it's at the NVC stage. I am filing the I-130 for my stepchildren. I've been trying to follow the information in the James's Shortcuts, but because everything was done online, a lot of the information is not relevant.

I believe that this is what I need to do, if anyone has any corrections or suggestions, please let me know.

We have already done the Choice of Agent, which is me, the petitioner. I will be sending in

1. DS-230 signed by my husband as the father. I contacted NVC and was told this is okay.

2. original marriage certificate for me and my husband

3. original birth certificate for each child

4. passport biographic pages for each child

They are both under 14 so they don't need the police info or the other stuff. Is there anything that I'm forgetting or overlooking?

Just thought of a stumbling block. There are two visa packages but only one marriage certificate. Any suggestions on how to fix that? Do you think it is okay to send in both packages together?

I had a few extra of our certified Marriage and placed one in each package. I had duplicates of everything ( well ore than that ) so there would be no problems in the end. Follow Lin Che's short cuts, James are a little outdated :lol: they worked for me in 2007 though

Why is it that the only one who can stop the crying is the one who started it in the first place?

Don't forget the passport size photos (2 per child).

LIN CHE Shortcuts

Thanks, I should have tried this shortcut sooner. Do you think that NVC will send the package back if I send both packages as one with only one marriage license?

Don't forget the passport size photos (2 per child).

Oh yes. I left it off the list but I have those. Thanks.

and read. Should cover a lot of info (that you need). It's not a fast read, though.

So I sent in the package on Thursday, 2-day priority. I was going to send it overnight but the difference was about $5 vs about $18. I figured one more day wasn't crucial. I realized after sending it that I forgot to write in "never" where it asks about prior trips to the US and I forgot to write in the school information. :bonk: I guess I can expect the RFE. Or do they send those from NVC?
