I just received my NOA2. Once we get the approval and create the case number from the NVC how long can we wait before submitting  all the required forms and documents to the NVC? I've read that an NVC account can remain valid for one year but I can't find anything official about it.


We would like to pause during this process as my husband and I have been living abroad in his home country and we want to finish up our job contracts and make sure we've been married for 2 years (April 2020) before going ahead with the process.


When the petition is approved from USCIS to the NVC, can we go ahead and choose the agent and pay fees and then wait before submitting materials? If anyone has been through a similar process or has any official links they could share, I would be so grateful for information! I know this is a bit unusual as most people are trying to get this process to go faster, not slower :)
