Laywer and Auto Generation of IV Bill

I have been using a lawyer for the immigration process and confirmed today with the NVC that there will be no need for me to designate an Agent for my case. The default agent will be my lawyer since she was already part of the original process.

NVC did say however I could send another DS3032 Choice of Agent if I want to change, but that is totally up to me.

James Shortcuts (http://www.visajourney.com/wiki/index.php/Jame%27s_Shortcut) mention that "After your DS-3032 is received by NVC, the IV (Immigrant Visa) fee bill will be generated"

Since I will likely NOT be sending in a DS3032 (agent is automatically the lawyer) - what would happen in this case in terms of the IV fee bill generation? Will it be generated automatically since there is an agent already designated? Will it NOT be generated because the system is waiting for a DS3032?

IMO, the AOS and IV fee bill will be generated either

--at the same time, same day or

--with 2 days of each other.

Are you planning on using the online payment portal ? Things can 'go fast' if you do -

and

not need lawyer to SUBMIT these items into NVC

(Lawyers actually slow down NVC processing for CR-1 visas, not so many know about NVC Online Payment Portal, they all want to wait on postal receipts)

You can tailor this --> http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/221785-ds-3032-slowdown/page__view__findpost__p__3560467 to meet yer needs, as well.

Darnell - thank you for the reply and the link.

The NVC now has the email addresses of the beneficiary and the petitioner and they said that my lawyer will no longer receive postal mail correspondence for the case.

At the advice of my parents, they said to include the lawyer on the email correspondence.

I am considering the following action: Call the NVC and update the beneficiary email address and give them the address of the Lawyer instead .

My concerns about this are:

* If I update the email address now will it create any problems for the generation and delivery of documents and bills?

* If I make this update first thing Monday morning - is there a good chance my lawyer will still be included on the very first communication from NVC? The email addresses on file are likely 2 days away from the receipt of the first AOS fee bill.

* The complete email address is a dead giveaway that she is a lawyer. As an example, the lawyers email is similar to "lawyer@immigrateusa.com"

Updating the email address will probably be very obvious to the NVC who is receiving the email; so would including my Immigration Lawyer's email address create a question about my case in the eyes of NVC? Something they would have to check with a supervisor or make a special request for this type of change. Further, could it create reasonable cause for some type of monitoring on my case file that was not present before?

Thanks !

Are you including the lawyer in the NVC payment/sending process, or not?

To me, that's the 'defining line' for making the changes that you are suggesting.

IMO, no lawyer involvement needed at NVC.

Also IMO, having a lawyer involved will slow things down, considerably, unless that lawyer has deep understanding of the online payment portal process, just why those 'generated bar code coversheets are acceptable as notice from NVC to send something in', and is active on the 'current NVC process'.

So, I'm not gonna answer yer question, on this one - as yer situation, IMO, raises more questions and red flags.

Unfortunately my husband used a lawyer to file his I130. When the approved I130 was recieved by NVC i wasnt informed or given a choice of agent, they automatically assigned my husbands (useless lawyer) and within 2 days of receiving the approved I130 had sent both fee bills to him. I only found this out 2 weeks after they had done so because i called NVC. The lawyer held up what should have been a simple process that could have been done in a matter of days by at least 6 weeks !!! My advice is get the lawyer out of the loop ASAP!!!!

Carly the same thing happened to me. The NVC sent the attorney the fee bill right away and she received it in 2 days.

Fortunately my lawyer and I are still working together and today I paid the bills for the visa.

I talked to someone at the NVC and now they are updating everyone on the case via email - My Attorney, The Petitioner and Beneficiary all now receive from NVCAttorney@state.gov
