Hi Friends,

 

I am the Petitioner (US Citizen) and beneficiary is my spouse.

 

My spouse's I-130 has been approved and I want my spouse's address to be changed, I know after I-130 approved, case is transferred to NVC, but I didn't received anything from NVC yet, What documents I should  prepare for NVC Process and how to send thoe documents to NVC ??  How to change my spouse's address  ??

 

Appreciate your help and time.

Hi,

i am a US citizen as well, I received my approval for I130 on 10/26/2018 and I know the letter said wait 30 days before calling cause apparently it takes that long for them to receive the petition I gave it a shot anyway and I called NVC to see if my petition was received and they said they got it 11/2/2018 but the gentleman I spoke to was very nice and when I asked him what should I expect next he told me it will take 4-8 weeks to receive a welcome packet via email or mail and I would need to then submit documents to them (tax papers, proof of income etc) and as far as changing ur address check the Nation visa center website or USCIS or maybe even give the national visa center a call.

Hi , Thanks for your reply,

 

My case received by NVC on November 8 and I tried to ask them on the call too , they said case number isn't generated yet so they can't update address too. How I would receive Welcome packet ?? Via email or mail ?? Any idea ??

 

Thanks F&S2018. and good luck with your case .

Well my case was received on the 2nd of November and they weren’t able to give me a case number yet either, from what I’m aware of once you get the welcome packet and instructions to submit documents that will have the case number. I have not received anything yet but the guy told me you’ll get something in email or mail in 4-8 weeks so I’m just waiting. Maybe you should call back within a few weeks or maybe email them that’ll also help you out. Maybe we can keep each other updated lol

Also, as far changing your address, you can directly change it with an agent once your case number is established. However, all NVC notifications are exchanged through email. I receive ONE mail from NVC with case number but the SAME CONTENT was sent via email on PDF form. 

 

What you you need to gather now is make sure you check out the link I posted above and prepare all the necessary documents ahead of time. Make sure your income meets the 125% poverty guideline, etc. At least review affidavit form and gather your spouse residency information since the age of 7. 

 

Once the case number is established you can check your status online through NVC website.
