i-130/ds230 for child of us citizen

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hi just received receipt notice for i-130 preference 201 b ina minor child of usc,,, does it take 5months from i-130 to getting the immigrant visa or just approving the i-130

as i live in usa with my husband who is filing for his stepdaughter ( my daughter ) while she is still in the uk, do we be the agent for her or can she be her own agent, i ask this as she is nearly 21 ( and bright enough to fill paperwork in herself )

does the paperwork get sent to the service centre here or straight to the embassy in london

if my daughter is her own agent and gets the bill can we still pay in online on her behalf

should she also NOW apply for her police check or wait until we receive the package of paperwork

sorry for all the questions but need to help her as much as possible as i cannot get enough time off work to be in england with her while this is done

all help will be gratefully received thanks debbie

It's always better for the person in the US to be the agent for faster communication and action. Especially if you are the one paying on her behalf, then better for you to be the agent (even if you are not the USC). At the right time NVC will send you a choice of agent form for her to complete.

About when you might receive the approval. It really depends on where they sent your file, California, Vermont, Nebraska? California took 6 months for me recently. Don't know whether the other 2 service centers are faster or slower but you can always check the USCIS websites under "processing times" for current information.

About the police certificate. Those are good for 6 months so I would wait till you get the NOA2 for her to do the police check. When the file is sent to NVC would be a good time to do that. Also it depends on how fast UK will take to issue a police certificate to her.

Please update your timeline to reflect where your file was sent to. If you received the first NOA (Notice of Action) at the bottom it says where your file is being processed.
