appointed agent

Hi,

I'm kind of putting my stuff for the NVC stage together and thought about being "my own agent" instead of my US husband being the appointed agent. The reasons are:

- His brain is like swiss cheese (sorry babe, but it's true)and he cannot check his email or call with his cell during work (he's working for an insurance, so they lock a lot of websites.)When he comes home, it's kind of late to call anybody, so...

- I'm just better at organizing and terrorizing people with calls and when he fills out something, he usually makes a mistake (we got the I 130 sent back before we got NOA 1, I think that says it all :blush: ). He's my scattered professor... ;-)

- I have lots of time and can basically call for free (skype for 5 bucks a month to US)

So, is it a disadvantage to do it, because of the mail delay but isn't most of the NVC stuff working over the i-net nowadays?? I can pay the bill, I have my own US account and we also have a joint account and everything works via e-banking.

Please give me some advice.

Great !

Sure you can be your own agent, as long as you can get the document and fee's to the

NVC, and make sure you follow up when and what your to do.

Sure electronic online billing and if your account in the USA anyway, just the same

as if he did it himself, except your doing it instead.

Checkout the step and process at the NVC website for detail

Give it a try you have nothing to lose.

Good Luck on the journey :thumbs:

since you've been on here for 3 years, I think I'll follow your advice...

Thanks for both opinions, though

here's a roadmap - can he follow ? http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/221785-ds-3032-slowdown/page__view__findpost__p__3560467

Even if he can't, with him as the agent -

YOU'LL be able to handle most - just be certain he pays at the online portal when you tell him to,

and

he makes that first phone call.
