Bringing my step sons with the CR-2, OF 169, DS 230????

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone and thanks for reading my post.

I am submitting the NVC packet for my step sons and I have couple of questions

Do we submit the OF-169 form? or is it an old form not used any more or covered by another form?

Do we submit the DS-230? Is it covered by the IV application?

Do I send the I-864 with the packet?

The instructions on the Immigration website don't match up with Visa Journey process list or maybe I am reading it wrong.

Thanks for your time

I resolved my own problem by calling the NVC this AM

The OF 169 form is obsolete

The DS-230 is replaced by the DS-260

Steps are as follows:

FIll Out DS-261 and Pay Fee (Choice of Agent)

Wait...up to 30 days or more

Pay IV Application Fee and then you can fill out DS-260

Wait...60 days roughly

Receive Schedule date from Consulate

Tip: Once you fill out the DS-261 and paid the fee...SEND THE NVC PACKAGE ASAP....you can send out this package and save 30 days roughly...below is the typical NVC Packet

I-864 (several variations but most use just the I-864)

Copy of last 3 years of taxes

Recent paystub

Child's Birth Certificate

Marriage Certificate

Divorce Certificate (if applicable)

Copy of Demographic Page of Passport

Passport Regulated Photos

No Police Record needed if the child is less than 16 years old

Adoption Documentation if applicable

All Certificates need only be copies-in fact all paperwork are just copies

Hope this helps someone out

Good Luck
