starting to review the NVC procedure

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm a US citizen (in the US) & my wife (a foreigner outside the US) [no kids] {Indonesia} and we are going through the CR1/IR1. We just received I-130 approval & I want to clarify my understanding of what's next and how to make things go as fast & smoothly as possible:

- My understanding is that we will both be mailed the DS-3032. - as soon as I can get the case number by calling the NVC automated line, then we can use a website to generate the barcode, & fill out & send the DS-3032 (if I have her signature) . . . or alternatively she can email it.

- When I receive the AOS (I-864) I send that out ASAP with the $88 fee or pay it online (which I'll do). I believe I read that if I pay the fee online, I get access to the barcode and can then send the I-864 out right away. Otherwise, alternatively, I would pay the fee via mail and then receive the I-864 Petitioner Packet and then send out the I-864. Is my understanding here correct?

- As I will be the Agent, I will also receive the IV Bill and pay it online as well

- As the Agent, I will then receive and send out the DS-230 and any necessary documentation

Questions:

----------

- Once I pay the IV Bill, do I need to wait for the DS-230 Package or can I just send out the DS-230 as soon as I've paid the IV Bill? (Or can I even send out the DS-230 earlier?)

- Actually, What is the IV Bill (IV Application Processing Fee)? I've looked at the fee charts and am not sure. Would we fall under the $330 "Immediate relative and family preference applications" fee?

please help me understand anything else if I left out

Yep, leave those blank that won't fit and use blue ink preferably, black if you have no choice. In another thread there was a problem with the black ink looking like a photocopy/scan so blue ink is the safest.
