my wife and i have our consulate appointment on monday and i have a question regarding the process and her polizei record check. first we have not recieved her record check from the polizei and it has been a month, will be still be able to submit the paperwork we do have and pay the 420$ fee and just return at a later appointment when we recieve the background check? or will they kick us back all together and have to submit everything as complete? is the filing fee a one time thing or will they make us pay each time? Do we have to have the DS-230 form done on the first interview, or is that a form that is filled out later? any help or guidance is greatly appreciated.

You don't need the Fuehrungszeugnis until the actual visa interview - approximately three to four months after you file the I-130 petition. At this interview she has to sign a bunch of paperwork, provide the Fuehrungszeugnis, your last three tax returns and your signed Affidavit of Support among a few other things. And she'll have to pay $230.

Make sure she reads up on the vaccinations that are required - here My link Make sure she can prove TWO MMR shots, one will not do. Also she needs a TDaP boost and a varicella vaccination. If she had varicella as a kid, a simple blood test will show and she can bring it to the medical.

You bring the DS-230 in at your initial interview (don't forget the others, too... I-130, G325a...), but DO NOT SIGN Part II!!!!!! This won't happen until she has her visa interview.
