Good luck!

I would recommend getting familiar with the process while you wait for the I-130 to be approved. Also, use this time to gather lots of proof that will help you during the NVC and interview stage. Any contact you make with the beneficiary (via visits, sms, email, call etc) should be documented and used as proof for on going relationship and supplied to NVC down the road.

Thanks! Yeah, I didn't know the burden of proof was SO heavily placed on the applicant/beneficiary, I figured some proof was enough but now i'm always trying to think of ways to log communications... creepy when I think about it though! blush.gif

Congrats on the visa! Have you been to the US before?

By the way, do you mind if I copy your signature format, it's nicely done. smile.gif

My I-130 was received by USCIS on 10/3/12, and the NOA1 date is 10/5, I still can't view my case. I've seen cases on the forums, and people don't see their case show up online until the next step such as NOA2 or an RFE. blink.gif

As far as everyone else, welcome to the thread! Hopefully we'll all have good experiences with our I-130s and subsequent visas! smile.gif
