DS-3032 and DS-261 Question

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I am Canadian and my wife is a US citizen. My wife sponsored me and is my petitioner, so I can gain residency in the US.

My wife was mailed form DS-3032. Being the applicant I filled it out and mailed it back, as I opted myself to be "choice of attorney". But, later I was mailed a package also with form DS-3032. My questions are:

1) I/we don't need to fill out the second DS-3032 correct? It is only for the choice of attorney for the applicant (myself)?

2) Being Canadian, should I have filled out (online) form DS-261 instead? If so, is it too late to fill it out because I already submitted DS-3032?

I e-mailed the NVC asking about the second DS-3032 form, not the DS-261 though. But, they simply responded saying they received the first one.

Thank you so much! =D

If they received the first DS-3032 and accepted it, then you're fine. Keep an eye on the payment portal and the IV bill should be invoiced soon.

As a Canadian, yes, you should have done the DS-261. It probably would have been accepted faster as it's done online. But NVC is still taking DS-3032 from countries eligible for online forms. But as you already sent in the DS-3032, and they received it, do not fill out the DS-261. One choice of agent form is enough.

Just make sure you fill out the DS-260 as that's mandatory.
