I-130 6 Steps after NVC Welcom Letter (ACL) questions.

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. First time here so hopefully I've found the correct place to post these questions.

First off, I am a U.S. citizen living as a permanent resident in Canada for the past 15 years and I've been married that whole time here to a Canadian citizen. I've applied for a visa for my wife back in the spring and we're finally in a good position to move forward after getting the first part of the application approved. The next 6 steps as outlined in the document are:

  1. Choose an agent
  2. Pay fees
  3. Submit visa application
  4. Collect financial docs
  5. Collect supporting docs
  6. Submit financial/supporting docs

I'm waiting to move to step 2 of this process, but my first big question is about #4. I do not live in the U.S. and therefore I'm not sure what financial documents I should be gathering exactly. Most of the information assumes I am in the U.S.

I recently found out that even though I am living in Canada I should have still been filing U.S. tax returns, this did not ever occur to me and so another question if anyone knows is how bad that might be.

My 11 year old son is already all taken care of and has a U.S. passport SS card etc.

To make things stranger my wife submitted a form for one of those visa lotteries through the Kentucky Consular Center and was chosen, but thought it was a scam when she was finally notified. The cut off date for her to claim was Sept. 30th and I wonder if anything can be done in regards to that by chance.

I appreciate any feedback and I'll quickly clarify any information if needed.
