your wife will receive 2 bills now for the DS 260 and the I 864 

she needs to pay these and then fill out the forms online after payment is processed

and she will need a criminal investigation report on you from all countries you have lived in

she will also receive notice of any other documents needed by NVC

when all are received,  processing starts and you will be notified of packet being sent to embassy

If you fill out your timeline with your NOA1 date and your service center it will give you an estimated approval date. Nebraska is currently taking 9 months to approve I-130s.

If all is well and you don’t receive a RFE (request for evidence) it is about time and you may get the approval ina month or two.


however NVC will send their approval and then send your case to the Dhaka embassy.  Depending on the time it takes them to process you can expect 1-4 months to get an interview date.


most importantly, educate yourself with AP.  Advanced Processing starts after approval of a visa applicant by the consulate and  is applicable for males from certain countries.  Sadly we made the list and it’s a long pause, from a 

month to years.  Unless you know what to expect, the waiting on AP can crush the spirit.  Hoping all will go well, be well prepared with the waiting on AP.  Once AP is over, you need to start thinking about PoE (Point of Entry), but that’s usually the smoothest :-)


best of luck.
