Hello!! I'm new to this so please bare with me :) I am a U.S citizen and my husband is from the U.K. We just submitted our I-130 packet last week. I haven't heard anything yet, but I wanted to get started on the next step (if possible). I am going to visit him in the U.K next week and I'm wondering what paper work I should take with me for the next step. Is there anything he will need from me or I will need from him (original birth certificates, forms signed, photos, etc...)? Anything he has to sign, etc.... I just thought while I was over there I can save us some time/postage money and get stuff done while I was there. Also, am I correct in thinking that I can visit him while the I-130 is pending? I was thinking about bringing my house deed, check stubs, and children's birth certificates as proof that I will be returning to the U.S. Does that sound sufficient? Thanks in advance!!

Your free to visit him as you like heck I've been with my husband almost through the whole process, there's not much you can do for the next step as the nvc is about 5 months out and there isn't much needed on his end . He can get passport photos taken you'll need those again, and a copy of his birth certificate, but you need him to get a police clearance as well but most only last for 6 months so you cannot do that this soon and will have to wait otherwise all the other things you can handle in the U.S. Without him .

As a US citizen, you are free to visit your husband as you please in the UK, without bringing any additional paperwork. If it were reversed, he would need to show sufficient evidence of his return to the UK.

As far as preparing the necessary paperwork, there isn't much you need to do as another comment had mentioned that the USCIS has a backlog of about 5-6 months. The only thing you will receive is confirmation that your application is received with a case number.
