Filed two separate petitions for me (wife of LPR) and my one year old son

I have filed TWO separate petitions for me (wife of an LPR) and my one year old son. Both we're already approved and has a PD of Mar 17, 2013.

Now I received a letter from NVC for both my son and I (NVC welcome letter) last april 9, 2015 and we both have different NVC case numbers and invoice numbers.

Here are my questions:

1. Is my son already automatically my dependent (under my own nvc case number)?

2. Was filing a separate petition for my one year old son a waste of money and effort as he is automatically included under my name as dependent?

3. I already started with step 1, which is choosing an agent using my own case number and invoice number. And i didnt do the step 1 for my son anymore since he is already my dependent (will he be automatically my dependent?) did i actually do the right thing, not bothering to go through the nvc steps for my son using his own nvc case number?

I just want to make sure because i already started step 1 for my nvc case number last apr 13,2015 and did not do anything anymore to my son's petition (having his own case and invoice nbr). But i know that we will both have separate immigration visa application forms.

Thanks so much for all your help,

Worried Mom.

hi, yes your son qualifies as your detivative. there was no need to file a separate petition for him. in case your husband becomes a us citizen he can upgrade that petition to immediate relative but as for now you can just let that petition sit at nvc. good luck.

Patience is virtue, my friend. Everything happens for a reason.
