You should try call NVC and check if they already have a number assigned to your case. That will be your "NVC Case Number" and with that, plus the ID# that they will provide too, you will be able to move forward with you process.

your case will be forward to the NVC now. You should receive an e-mail and a letter from the USCIS stating that your petition was approved and is being sent to the NVC. You might not get a letter it is best to call the NVC . IF your petition has just been approve then the NVC might not have your petition yet. Once the NVC receives your petition you will have to wait for your case number and invoice number, which right now is taking about 42 days it could be longer or shorter for you. Once you are assign case and invoice number you can fill out the DS261 choice of agent form and Pay the AOS fees. After AOS fees show paid you can send in both the AOS and the IV packets, while waiting for the IV fees to be paid and to fill out the DS260 forms. it taking 60 day for documents to be review and 30 day for the IV fees to be invoice. So if you send in the documents while waiting for IV fees to be invoice you will save some time.

You will have to call the NVC more often then you did at the USCIS. Do not wait on replies from NVC. Call as often as you think you need to. The phone lines are usually very busy at NVC and sometimes it is hard to get thru. When you do get thru you might be on hold for a long time, but do not wait on NVC, as you will be waiting a lot of extra time, then you need to

You have to call NVC two weeks after uscis sent them ur file to ask if they registered your case. You can start filling ur AOS form I-864 u can download it from uscis website. For u to fill this form u have to have in hands W2 and Income taxes from 2012,2013 and 2014, which u will have to send together with the AOS. Also the beneficiary documents. Marriage Certification, Birth Certification, Passport copy, 2 photos, Criminal Certification and thats all. (You just get this ready, dont send this until you have ur case number and invoice number, fill ds-261 and ay the fee of 120usd). From 20-45 days after NVC registered your case you have to keep on calling NVC to ask for ur invoice and case numbers and also to add ur email address. So when u have this numbers u will go into ceac.gov and fill form ds-261 Choose of agent And pay the fee of 120 usd and PRINT to coversheets one for the Affidavit of Support and another one for the documents. When u fill ds-261 and pay 120 usd is when u can send the affidavit and the beneficiary documentations both in the same package). Then call to NVC three days after sending this to see if they received it. So then u will just have to wait for they to approved the ds-261 and when they do it they will enable the fee of 325 usd when u pay them on the website it is going to appear PAID and then some days after they will enable the form ds-260, You fill it and then u will just have to wait for case completed it takes from 45-60 days and then they assign ur interview some days after. Be Aware not to get a checklist each checklist means 60 more days of waiting. There are some documents online which tell you how to fill the form I-864 which is the most important. You have to sign this document with black PEN And write the case number nvc gaves u with PENCIL on each Affidavit sheet of paper. There are some youtube instructions too.
