I-130 APPROVED WHAT ARE THE NEXT STEPS?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

VJ,?

I just got my approval email from the USCIS stating that my I-130 was approved. I just wanted to know what the next steps are? I wanted to go ahead and prep the forms so I can send them off as quickly as possibly. It only took about 2 months for our I-130 to get approved.

Will I receive a packet of information from the NVC?

Thanks!
