Ok so my question is this now that I have received the NOA2 what is next? I mean from my reading I know that it is now time to send to the NVC to process for the local consulate. But what I don't kow and have not come across is exactly what needs to be done within these stages. If someone can either respond or direct me to the right location for the information I am looking for, woul dbe very greatful. Additionally, are there any fees to be paid at this step? is it like the I-130 where you have to pay the affidavit of support and vias processing fee, and if that is the case what is the cost? I have done the I-130 before and know those fees exist and have to be paid to the NVC prior to the case being forwarded to the consulate but haven't found any indication of such for the K-1. Anyone who has already done this stage of the process your advice and feed back would be really helpful. Thank you to all in advance.

You don't pay anything at the NVC stage for K1. Give your petition about 2 weeks from when USCIS sends them to NVC and then start calling to get your case number. While waiting, its best to research on the documents required during the interview.

Yep, no fees. Start gather all your documents for your interview. Getting police/military/medical records can take awhile. Go here to read up on all the required docs: http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1guide

Thank you will definitely look into it.
