You can fill out the I-864 and gather everything needed for I-864, then mail them to NVC now. But for IV Bill, you have to wait for the mail to receive it, since there is no shortcut for it.


I-130 Timeline with USCIS:

It took 92 days for I-130 to get approved from the filing date

NVC Process of I-130:

It took 78 days to complete the NVC process

Interview Process at The U.S. Embassy

Interview took 223 days from the I-130 filing date. Immigrant Visa was issued right after the interview

Yes, you can overnight the I-864, but make sure you include every required documents with I-864. You can have the DS 230 ready now and when NVC will generate the DS 230, you can send the one that you prepared before in order to save time. But the DS 230 part I must be signed by the benecifiary. While you can prepare it, it has to be signed by the foreign alien beneficiary. You can download the DS 230 part I and II from this website (Gallery downloads, then K-3 Forms) and fill it out right on the computer, print it out and have part I signed by the beneficiary.
