Hi!

 

I was reading on the guides that after submitting the I-130, the NVC will send me (the relative) a package, I am worried that in my country (Costa Rica) addresses dont work,we dont have real addresses,  my husband and his family have tried to send me stuff and they never get to me. How can I prevent that from happening?  Is it possible that they will send it to him instead of me?

The NVC will not send anything to anybody.  Once your case is entered into their system and a number assigned to it, give them email addresses of record and all communication will be exclusively electronic.

You will need to get papers from your spouse later I would make sure you can get mail from him.

 

He is going to need to mail you an affidavit of support and his taxes as well as anything else you might need.
