Messed up DS-261 help please..

Recommended Posts

Ok so I filled up my mom's ds-261 on her behalf and on the question if you are already legally immigrated and doesn't need immigrant visa I clicked "Yes" instead of "No". After I hit the button "Next:Review" a message box popped up that the case is sent back to USCIS an it will be closed and there is an "OK" below which I di not click because I thought I was wrong and I knew then I made a mistake. So I hit the back button instead and it took me to the first step page and because I freaked out I logged off for a minute then logged in again.

I saw the same message "start ds-261 application" so I started to fill out again and this time I did it right and got a confirmation message at the end.

An hour later I received n e-mail from NVC stating my AOS bill has been invoiced.

My questions are, since I messed up on the first try but didn't hit the "OK" button means the first try was incomplete?

Since I was able to redo the whole thing an got a confirmation message/code and AOS invoiced does this mean everything is Ok?

your aos fee is paid..if any thing wrong happened..aos will not be generated..So all good

Ok so 2 days ago I called the NVC and asked if they got my mom's ds-261 and he said yes and it will take 30 days for the IV to be invoiced and he asked me about who's the agent and email address. And suddenly he told me you'll be receiving an email and prepare the payment. 24 hours later I got that email and just paid today! Thank you guys for the help. .

please update when you got invoice for IV

You are so right! Thanks a lot..
