I130 approved but beneficiary may be difficult to reach

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My stepdaughter's I130 was just approved, and we got the letter from USCIS saying "we're forwarding to the National Visa Center, wait 30 days before contacting us..."

 

My question is: at what point does my stepdaughter need to be in contact with the Dept of State or other relevant govt department? She is 10 years old and doesn't have an email/phone number, and the mail system in her city is notoriously unreliable. I did provide my (petitioner) phone and email.

 

In general, is it possible for me to do everything here in the US, have my wife forward her all the relevant info (via WhatsApp), and just have her take the medical & interview once the petition gets sent overseas? Or will there be intermediate steps that need her direct involvement?

 

Thanks!

So you will do everything for her because most information required is yours the petitioner,I just finished with my sons paperwork and it’s a swift process if you upload all they need.The child just needs to do medicals,visa pictures and attend interview.Any more questions feel free to PM me

Yes, you'll need to do everything for her. Completing the process at NVC and mailing all relevant documents to her. You'll also be informed of interview dates and pass that information to her. You can also add your spouse's email address to CEAC when you get to the NVC stage so least you have two people receiving emails- one person as a backup in case of anything.

That is awesome and a big relief, thanks!
