About Filing the I-130

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So I have everything prepared:

I-130

Supporting Evidence

Proof of bona fide marriage and proof of citizenship

G-325A

The check for Form I-130

Beneficiaries legal copies of name change

I-864

The past 3 years of taxes

Paystub

Everything...my questions to you veterans and pros on this subject is.

Can I file everything including the I-864 together when I file Form I-130?

Is it best to do things one by one, I-130 first, wait for acceptance and transfer of the case to NVC, wait for the package from NVC. So on...

Please and thank you for any replies. I am sure others want to know as well.

I am no pro or expert but I believe you file seperately, in fact i am about 99.9% sure. After your I-130 is approved and sent to the NVC is when you will submit I-864 etc.

I-864 and relevant documentation is not sent to USCIS with the I-130. It is sent to the NVC after you have received a case number from the NVC and the appropriate bill has been paid. You will not be dealing with the NVC until after they receive an approved petition from USCIS.
