Hi everyone. I know we are all trying to wait as patiently as possible for the next step. I emailed my DS-3230 on the 22nd and haven't heard back yet. As there is no timeline for the DS-3230 I was wondering who sent it around the same time and when you heard back.

I called them yesterday. They said they hadn't received it yet and told me to wait. Looks like you sent yours 2 days before me and just got the IV bill yesterday. So hopefully I will get mine Monday.

Unfortunately we could not send the AOS package yesterday because there were problems with printing the barcode sheet. My husband will send it on Monday. But it looks like the IV will be what will slow things down now. I am hoping to still get a November or latest December interview. Not sure what my chances are for that.

I sent our DS 3032 2 days after you, so I'm right there behind you:)

I wouldn't worry about IV bill. As soon as they review your DS3032 e-mail and accept it - they will invoice the bill (might take 1-2 days or something like that). I heard they get to these e-mails as they come so there may be a line of some sort. If you sent the e-mail after you had received the case# and all that jazz, you should be good. If your e-mail gets rejected, more knowledgeable members advise to resend it right away. It takes over a week or so for it to be reviewed.

And send the AOS packet overnight, I believe it is around $18. I sent mine yesterday at 3 pm, and the packet was at NVC today before noon.

Plus, I'm hoping for my husband to get a November interview. And I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a November date for yo as well! :)

Thank you so much. It really helps to read about cases that with similar timelines. I sent the DS-3230 email as soon as I had the case number. I did not wait for the AOS bill and the DS-3230 Email from NVC as people on the forum said that wasn't necessary. I really hope it doesn't get rejected.

It took around a week for us to get our DS3032 acceptance email. If you already have had your IV Bill invoiced, then it should be very soon that the DS3032 is accepted. I'm not sure if everyone gets an acceptance email, but if both Petitioner and Beneficiary are getting emails regarding the IV Bill, etc. then it probably was accepted. Unfortunately, NVC isn't always very helpful with their "it takes 20 business days..." blah blah blah

We haven't had the IV bill invoiced yet. If we did, that would actually mean the DS-3032 was accepted, because the IV bill does not get invoiced unless the DS-3032 WAS, in fact, accepted.

Could you please tell me, when you received the bill on the 20th, was the payment portal giving you an error message at any point? Or did you just receive the bill and did not check the portal before? I am starting to get really worried about the DS-3032.
