Confused on what's next in the process

Hello everyone. I've been doing a lot of reading but am unsure of what is next for me in the process. I'd really appreciate if someone could tell me if I am correct here.


I sent in my I-130 and have a received date of May 11, 2018. I am applying for a an IR1 visa. I am in the Nebraska Service Center and am expecting to get the NOA2 soon. My understanding is I can get some forms and documents ready before the NVC asks for it but I am confused on what these forms are. I keep reading about "packet 3" and "packet 4" and have read through this guide here: https://www.visajourney.com/wiki/index.php/LingChe_NVC_ShortCut


So what I think I should do is get my police certificate and any other documents that I may have missing (I think I have everything except the police certificate and long-form birth certificate). Can I fill out any other forms ahead of time? I see people saying they are filling out things online but in other threads, as well as the sticky guide here, it talks about forms like DS-260 being filled out before they request it. What exactly are packet 3 and 4?


Thank you so much and good luck to everyone!
