Hi everyone,

I just checked my status online and we were approved for the I-130 which we were really happy about. I was surprised because we were approved in one month.

I would like to know what comes next? They told me they will send us instructions so I'm just waiting. But I'm curious again as to what we will be filing

since our I-130 was processed so fast from over here. I would like to know what documentation will will have to gather but I guess I'll know from the

instructions they send us!

but I guess I'll know from the instructions they send us!

If you wait for instructions, you will be waiting for a very long time, I suggest you check out LingChe NVC ShortCut for what you will be doing next.

Was the USC filing the petition while living abroad? Others on this forum have identified an "automatic expedite" for USCs filing abroad when the petition shows the foreign address.

I just realized what step you missed

You expedited at the NVC level and they approved it.

As soon as they approved it you needed to call the embassy and ask for an expedite AGAIN

So call them to get expedite approval for the interview

Good Luck

Hello again,

I sent the I-130 paperwork to California Service Center and I just saw the notice for approval online. I didn't know it would be so quick. What do you mean by expedite interview? Do I have to send paperwork in first?? I'm confused, thanks for any help. Also, what is the choice of agent again? I have to go to the embassy website. My internet has been a little slow so I haven't been able to research as much!
