Hello everyone,

Now all documents on our side necessary for continuation of the case at nvc are all submitted to the attorney. Thus

1. ds260 (questionair)

2. criminal check (beneficiary)

3. Aos (completed)

4. iv and aos fees paid

However, after one full month of submission of the said documents to the attorney the CEAC website is still showing the following:

i. AOS = PAID

ii. AOS DOCUMENTS AND FINANCIAL EVIDENCE = N/A

iii. IV FEE= PAID

iv. OV APPLICATION = INCOMPLETE

v. CIVIL DOCUMENTS = N/A

My problem here is that what could be the meaning of ii, iv and v when the said document were already submited to this attorney bearly a month ago?

Your sugessions are highly respected. I am fruatrated!

However, after one full month of submission of the said documents to the attorney the CEAC website is still showing the following:

i. AOS = PAID Normal

ii. AOS DOCUMENTS AND FINANCIAL EVIDENCE = N/A Normal (the website has so far never updated when documents have been received at NVC, we're all assuming this is a future function they just haven't made use of yet)

iii. IV FEE= PAID Normal

iv. OV APPLICATION = INCOMPLETE Your attorney hasn't completed this, you need to chase them/fire them

v. CIVIL DOCUMENTS = N/A Normal

My problem here is that what could be the meaning of ii, iv and v when the said document were already submited to this attorney bearly a month ago?

Even though it's normal for the document statuses to be N/A, you should check with your attorney that they actually sent them off, since it has been a month and they still haven't done your IV application. NVC is currently taking 60 days to review anything they receive, so you really don't want to be delaying yourself unnecessarily.

ROC from CR-1 visa (Green Card expiration date was Nov 24th 2016)

 

Link to the evidence I submitted. Be sure to send evidence spanning your entire marriage (especially for K-1) or as far back as you can. Just one or two bank statements will not cut it. I primarily focused on the two years of living here since I came in on a CR-1. If you don't have the fundamentals (i.e. joint accounts/policies), you can explain why in the covering letter. E.g. "While we do not have joint utilities, we both contribute to them from our joint bank account".

April 2018 - August 7th 2018: Tons of service requests, emails and now senator involvement to get my corrected green card back because what the heck, USCIS. Also some time in May I sent a letter to Potomac telling them I want to withdraw my I-90 since CSC were handling it.

I believe it is up to the beneficiary to fill out the online DS-260 application, unless you have made a specific arrangement with the attorney to make the application. My attorney is expecting my spouse to fill it out. It is fairly straightforward to fill out from what I understand.

Fyi more than just a criminal check needs to be sent to the NVC as IV (immigrant visa) documents.
