is only tied to date the ds-261 was added to the casefile, never tied to aos payment date.

usually IV is invoiced within a week of the ds-261 added to the casefile.

I submitted the 261 last week, and paid the AOS fee. The AOS fee shows 'paid', but the IV hasn't been invoiced yet. I've gone ahead and completed the I-864EZ and gotten together my tax transcripts for the last 3 years. Can that be sent now, or should I wait for the IV invoice?

Thanks in advance

And how would I know if and when the I-261 has been added to the case file?

Ron63,

You need to call NVC and request them to review your DS-261 otherwise it could take a month or more. Most of the people here have to call several times including me until you hit the right person. usually they will ask you to call next week, the case is with another person and locked etc etc, keep calling. Without this getting reviewed your IV bill will not be generated which means your DS-260 will not because its a chain locking system, one opens the other. Good luck.

Your IV and AOS document package nee to go together. Send that now while you are waiting for IV to be invoiced. You want to get in that 60 day line now not later. Send together.

Yeah, matuiz94..you're right. When i hit the link to fill out the ds-260, no bueno. It sends me to the payment portal. It's only been a week since I filled out the ds-261 and paid the AOS fee...I'll give it a few more days before I start calling.

Thank you for your responses.

You can submit your AOS and supporting documents before the IV fee has been invoiced and paid.

Great Vlad. I was hoping to send everything in together though. Without the ds-260,just the AOS then?

Not just AOS. AOS + IV docs. I personally was advised to do so by an NVC representative, and I did submit my AOS and IV (or supporting) documents before the IV fee was invoiced. It happened that the representative who advised me to do so was able to review my DS-261 over the phone and I got an email with the IV invoice a couple of days after we had sent off our documents.

So don't be in two minds, don't wait for the IV fee to become available. Submit documents in one package to the NVC after paying the AOS fee.

Did you send the documents while talking to the representative or did you send the documents before calling?

I hate calling the nvc and waiting for hours to get ananswer.

I'm waiting until i get the aos documnets from the sponsor and send them with the IV fee.
