Hello:

I want to know why we were chosen to do DCF. The mail is so much easier. My husband is in Missouri ,and, I of course in Canada..............waiting. We are at the AOS, paid and fill out. I also did the DS-260, complete, it says. Haven't heard anything for 10 days now. My interview will be in Montreal. Which will cost at least $1000 for Hotel. Panel physician, I have all the vaccinations and tither test. I still don't know how to send files a la PDF. It is complicated, I would rather just do snail mail, but NVC, says we cannot, we were chosen to do DCF. There is a rumor going round that DCF is stopping, in August? Wait and wait, it is driving me crazy.

If your husband is in the USA, you cannot do DCF. This is when you file directly with an embassy because the US spouse lives abroad, and doesn;t involve the NVC at all. It sounds like you were chosen for electronic processing.

You definitely have not been chosen to do Direct Consular Filing, you aren't "chosen". If you filed directly through your local US consulate where you lived in Canada then your file would never go to the NVC. [
