Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am a US Permanent resident, and I had applied for my wife it has been couple of years now and I received a mail that contains some documents regarding AOS fees etc.

There is a second letter that indicates that if the applicant intends to adjust status with the US Citizenship and Immigration Services please contact NVC before making payment or taking further action.

I unknowingly have already submitted the payment...

My wife is here on a Visit ... what should I do ?

Please advice

Is her PD current? She can only adjust if her PD is current.

If you have already paid the immigration visa fee (DS-230), then you will forfeit it if she adjust in the US.

well, if you have an AOS fee bill , her PD is current.

and NVC is gearing up to start processing for her, as a visa number is available (they don't do this until a visa number is available)

so

I'd take the lesser, cheaper road,

and forget she's in the USA, not try to file any Adjustment of status,

and instead, continue with NVC document intake, paying fees at NVC.

She'll have an interview at that IV unit abroad no later than October, surely, if you get busy today.

Since she's here, go forth with the DS-230, have her fill it out. She may need her civil documents from that 'home country', though.

good luck !

Thank you both.

Ryan I have the DS3032 .. I didn't have a DS 230 in these files though.

I only paid the $88 AOS through website.

Darnell,

That was one of the reasons I rushed to do the payment etc . You are right if it is going to take few months I rather have her go through NVC as I don't want her visit here to be any longer as she m

She might fall out of status.

Meanwhile eventhough I have not received the DS230 should I still have her file it?

Plaese advice

Thanks

you really aren't gonna recieve anything, no forms from NVC - yer to download those

My apologies - I just saw yer filing with a canadien beneficiary.

There's an electronic procesing path to do, for canada

PLEASE find Saylin's wiki page here, study all on 'how to do EP for Canada at NVC' , soonish.

there's other forms involved, but the payment stream is the same at the payment portal.

Darnell,

Understood, I have already signed up for the online communication through their website. .. my payment was rejected I sent again and it shows as in process. Following their links on the page I came across the AOS page where I had to choose few options... One of them was form I-864EZ ...

the conditions to fill this form was ..

a. If I was the petitioner of the family members sponsored.

b. I am using only my own earned or retirement income, which is documented using IRS form W2.

c. The sponsored immigrant is the only person immigrating based on the underlying visa petition.

My answer to all above is yes.

When should I send the form DS230 now or once the payment is sent?

Please advice.
