Why do you need it, may I ask? I can't think of a reason why, unless you're traveling soon and need it as a 'hey, we're trying to immigrate properly' proof..

This one thing to relax about, NOA1 and NOA2 in CR-1 / IR-1 spouse visa cases is not required for anything later on, you did copy down the file number?

In K-1 cases NOA2 is important later.

You will need the receipt number to check on your progress etc...... :unsure::unsure:

Hopefully they copied the number down.

Probably can find this number on back of canceled check

Was it worth it getting a lawyer?

Most people here find it is NOT worth getting a lawyer unless they have a specific situation that requires one. The lawyer will be paid by you to fill in the same forms that you can fill in and will not likely jump as quickly as you will along the way when you are told to. They need to ask YOU the questions in order to have them answered and you will be constantly having to provide them with information to fill in your blanks. You are the one separated from your loved one, not the lawyer. They aren't in a hurry to be together, you are. You can have things ready ahead of time so the second they request it of you, you are good to go. A lawyer on the other hand will never have that same sense of urgency.

ETA: Just realized when I responded to Faust942's post that he/she was responding to a very old thread. This should probably be closed.
