Should I wait to go thru NVC?

Hi everyone - it looks like we're all getting fast approvals from CSC.

We were approved (NOA2) with the date June 17th. I am calling to get my NVC number, hoping it won't be too many weeks.

However, I know that I am still waiting about my employment. I am hoping to get a new job in August in which I will have the min income. For now, I would have to use my current income (about $15,000) as income plus my assets. My assets are well over 5 times the difference. However, it will be complicated to get the paperwork, as I own a home with my siblings. I am guessing I would need affidavits from them saying that we intend on selling the home in the next 12 months.

However, should I wait before I take any of the other steps with the NVC? I know there is an expiration date for paperwork. I also will be going to Peru in August to get the police certificates and signatures from my husband. I won't be able to submit anything until I'm back from my trip. However, can I do the other steps in the meantime (agent, pay AOS fee, etc.)?

Any advice from the wise?

Thanks so much!!!!

you can pay fees without submitting the paperwork, handle the ds-3032 submittal, as well.

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.

Thanks for the tip! Best to go ahead and hope the financial stuff works out!

I also heard that in the interview they ask you more questions about your financial status, and that can also influence their decision regardless of what you put down on the forms. I'm wondering if that works in anyone's advantage? In my case, I'm finishing my doctoral degree, so I'm still on a student salary.

Thanks!

ya, just remember that NVC does a DOCUMENT INTAKE and cursory review, checking basic $$ numbers and completeness on the form.

Embassy IV Unit/VO Officer does the critical review on the I-864, so if things have changed drastically between NVC submittal and Interview Day, bring new I-864 to Interview Appointment, reflecting the new $$ data.

Not sure what you mean about an expiration date for paperwork. The I-130 approval doesn't expire. NVC will give you up to one full year to respond to whatever their latest request might be before sending the file back to USCIS.

I would proceed with anything you CAN and then if you need to delay the I-864, so be it.

Thanks for the advice! That is actually all a relief! People are saying that the I-130 expires, or that you have to respond to NVC in 4 months! Thanks for all the info!

I-129F petition approvals expire in 4 months if Consular officers don't extend them. No such thing with an I-130. I-130 approvals are good until specifically revoked.
