NVC Questions

Alright, so as I prepare to go through NVC some questions have popped up that I missed when I was looking over things at an earlier stage. Here there are:

  1. When opting in to EP, all I have to do is call and get my case number, write it on a filled out DS-3032, and then email it to the proper address with "OPTIN" as the first 5 characters in the title? Opting in is the part that confuses me the most.
  2. After I've opted in, payment will be driving the process, so as soon as I pay something I send in the packet I paid for (with the receipt)?
  3. I have two joint sponsors, but one is in the same household and so is filling out an I-864A. Does this make our other joint sponsor technically the only joint sponsor, or 1 of 2?
  4. Does the joint sponsor in our household count us as being part of his household, and does my husband count him as part of his?
  5. I read that only the 1040s with their W-2s and 1099s are required. How many of you have gotten through NVC with only one year of taxes and no other supplemental information?

I think these are my only questions for now. I'll be spending most of the day preparing everything and checking here often in case someone is kind enough to answer any of these questions. Thanks :)

OPT IN EMAIL is very specific - click my name, see my profile, grab the link for NVC EP, and read it a bit ?


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

1. it's an email process for you - you have to fill in a DS-3032 form, and SIGN IT - that form must have original signature to it - so you have to be able to fill it out, print it, sign it, and scan it back in, covert to PDF file type. It's an ATTACHMENT to the email. Then there's the exact subject line, needs to be precise. Then there's the CONTENT of the BODY of the email. Must match up the layout - use ascii text - any other type of formatting, making additional attachment, is useless. IF you'd like another 'eyeball view' of that optin email format - please review http://travel.state.gov/visa/visa_4410.html

2. coversheet with barcode plus the payment receipt. Did I leave out coversheet with barcode? I'll check it later.

3. no idea.

4. no idea.

5. Can also use tax transcripts, instead. Or in addition to - if you are including 3 years of tax data. I not learn of requirement at Montreal for 3 years (Unlike Guangzhou, where it is) - so you will want to hear back from Canada members about this.

Good Luck !

PS - if you'd like, perhaps write a bit about yer confusion with the OPT IN EMAIL, in case I'm not covering yer exact issue? (Truly, I don't understand the issue that yer having - 'being confused' is one thing, but being able to write exactly about WHAT the confusion is another thing)

IMO - you should 'wait' before opting in - to receive that first AOS fee bill via email (for the USC Spouse) as this gives NVC time to do the 'behind the scenes' prep work, necessary for NVC processing. If you send in the OPT IN too early, when NVC isn't ready for it, can cause much lagtime and confusion @ NVC.

[*]I have two joint sponsors, but one is in the same household and so is filling out an I-864A. Does this make our other joint sponsor technically the only joint sponsor, or 1 of 2?

[*]Does the joint sponsor in our household count us as being part of his household, and does my husband count him as part of his?

I believe they would be one of two. The I-864A is still a sponsorship form.

The answer to the household question is on page 7 of the I-864 instructions.

Your joint sponsor does not count your Husband - the USC, unless they claimed him as a dependant on their latest tax return - they do count the immigrant. They must either be dependants or fit other criteria to be included on the form (again, refer to page 7).

Your Husband does not count the people he is living with unless, again, he claimed them as dependants on his latest tax return.

Hey there!!

1) No idea, we didn't do EP.

2) You can send in your DS-230 package and IV package as long as you have the accompany receipts to show you've paid.

3) No idea.

4) No idea.

4) We sent in 1 year of taxes, we sent in a tax transcript though. (However, we also sent in a letter of employment and 6 months worth of paystubs.)

Thanks again for all the help! We sent our OPTIN yesterday evening and received the successful enrollment email today. Just waiting for the funds to transfer from our Canadian account to our US one so that we can pay the I-864 bill. I'll be really glad when this part is over, it has been the most tedious so far.

Sigh. So frustrated right now. I thought I had this all under control, but looks like I don't. Months ago I had everything ready to go so I could zoom through this stage, but I completely forgot about joint sponsors' proof of citizenship and was misinformed about my own passport. Now we're waiting on documents for both the I-864 as well as a new passport (with my new married name) for the DS-230. The passport is the biggest bummer because they refused to expedite it and so it will slow our case down at least two weeks. Thank goodness for this site, because no one else understands why this is so tough to deal with :(
