I-130 Questions

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

I don't know where to ask this question so I just picked a forum :).

My husband and I filed for the I-130 almost five months ago! He's a USC and I'm Belgian. My hubby called USCIS last week and requested to talk to a Tier 2 supervisor, who told him that they are processing applications with NOA1 date 27th of April '12 (our is 1st of May)... We have to hear from them any day now I guess???

I roughly know what the process will be after we get approved (hopefully!), but I wonder if they require an Affidavit of Support for every application?

I'm worrying a bit since my husband is an Air Force Reserve and currently still in college, so his income is not too high. (I am currently still working at my job in Belgium).

How much does he need to make to stay over the poverty line for both of us?

(Of course I am planning on looking for a job as soon as I would move.)

Thanks in advance and good luck to all of you!


- Paperwork for Green Card received by USCIS: May 3, 2013

Hi there,

Once your I-130 is approved, your petition will be forwarded to NVC. When you know that your case is at NVC, you need to call them and ask for two things: (1) NVC case number and (2) Invoice number. Before calling NVC, you must have your USCIS case number and your/your husband name, date of birth ready. Once you got your NVC case and invoice number, you log on to this link: https://ceac.state.gov/CTRAC/Invoice/signon.aspx and pay your Affidavit of Support fee and follow their instruction there. If your husband's income is below the poverty line, your husband will need a co-sponsor.

Good luck in your journey and wish you the best of luck,
