while waiting on NVC to receive file and assign numbers you shd start getting ready her birth cert, marriage/divorce/death cert( as applicable) police cert. get her to sign 2 Ds 230 forms if she lives far in case there are errors in one.

go and study the guides on this site for guidance as you progress.
