confused lawyer I guess - urgent help required

Recommended Posts

Dear VJ Members,

I need an urgent help, I am stuck I guess and extremely worried..my NAO2 was approved on April 2, 2012 and then NVC took so long to generate the bill on my continous calls after 45 days, on May 15, 2012 my husband in US (Citizen) paid the bill online; on the same day our lawyer mail the required forms like Affidavit of support and Form DS 230 but without my sign and with out my original documents; he said he did right while after a thorogh browsing I got to know that form DS 230 should be signed by beneficiary (myself) I do not why oour lawyer is saying that he is right and now I will get interview date most probably. I have called several time to NVC and they said they will take 20 business days to review the documents and then come back to us if any more thing required.

I have prepared my attested/notarized documents and prepared my poice certificate for the safe side and thinking to send the signed form DS 230 along with original birth certificate, police certificate and translated marriage certificate to my hubby so that if any query comes he will courrier NVC on the same day.

I feel I am losing my days due to lawyer because now NVC review in 20 days then after again submit the originals and then again NVC will take 20 more days, I feel so helpless and worried.

I have my first anniversary after 3 months, thought will celebrate with my hubby but the situation is just opposite thought my lovely hubby visited twice after wedding but it would not be possible again just after 3 months .

Sorry for being writing in details.

Hope to listen from you guys and your experiences if NVC accepts form DS withour beneficiary sign and without original birth, police and marriage certificate.

Regards,

SZ

You can be sure NVC will send you guys a Checklist for the civil documents not sent in. I will advise you wait to receive the Checklist before sending in the missing documents because while the DS-230 and accompanying documents go to "ATTN CMR" responses to Checklist are sent to "ATTN DR". The Checklist letter would advise you attach the checklist letter to the requested and send to the address on the cover sheet page included in the Checklist letter with a warning that failure to do so may cause a delay in processing the case.

[what is CMR and DR guys

I don't know what they stand for they are just different processing areas at NVC.

Your lawyer has given you the wrong information. You will definitely get a checklist for the unsigned DS230 and missing original documents. If I were you I would send them all to your husband in preparation for the checklist. That way as soon as it is received he can sent them in with the barcoded cover sheet.

Once received it won't take long to close your case. My case closed 2 days after they received the response to the checklist.

Good luck.
