Welcome to another monthly thread for those going through NVC

 

Please read everything below and refer to it throughout your NVC journey, whether this is your first month at NVC or your third. :bonk:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Before posting questions, please read the wiki Saylin wrote on the NVC process here. Once you're done, read it one or two more times to really understand it ;)Don't forget to also read the official form instructions as well as USCIS and NVC's websites!

If you want to see a visual of the NVC process, please view Saylin's flowchart here.

Yes this thread was created by our great Queen Saylin and the knowledge is still going forward. This thread I pray stays alive and well as many who have gone through the process or still going can chime in and help and assist.

If you're wondering about time frames, look at the fellow members right here in this thread! Study their signatures/timelines and make notes. VJ also has this awesome page. Use it! I sure did during my process :) That means if you are on this thread WE expect you to have an up to date timeline.

 

Current case file creation time:

This is the link to go to see what date they are working on. Follow  it says up to 6 weeks but recently that 6 weeks is about 4 weeks from approval at USCIS.
Once your case has been created, we will contact you with instructions on how to begin processing. Until your case is entered into our system, we unfortunately won’t have any information about your case.

 

Current case review time:

This is the link to see what date they are reviewing. Please allow up to three-weeks for NVC to review your forms and documents once we receive both the petitioner’s financial documents and the applicant’s civil documents. You must also have paid all required fees and submitted your visa application online. We will not review your file until we have received all of the above items

And once you've got a case complete, please join the case complete/interview thread started by me, Dwheels76 on (currently March 2020 thread),

Hello everyone!  Quick question!  I just don't want to make any mistakes that may cause RFE.  Since I'm the petitioner, I filled out an I-864 for my husband, however, I will not be sponsoring him because of lack of income.  The person that will be sponsoring my husband is not related to me.  She files taxes jointly with her husband.  So I looked on the CEAC website, and I need to add her husband as a family member because of the fact that they file together.  He needs to fill out an i-864a.  The below is copied from the website.  Do I need to provide their marriage certificate?  Or is the fact that they file taxes together enough to prove their relationship to one another.  It says that their tax returns are sufficient if my husband is listed as a dependent, which he obviously is not.  It is hard for her to currently provide me with her marriage certificate.  Please help!  

 

To add a household member, enter his or her information below. Please attach the household member's Form I-864A and "Proof of Relationship", which may include one of the following documents to show the household member's relationship to the sponsor or joint sponsor (the person who filed Form I-864):

  • Birth certificate
  • Marriage certificate
  • Adoption certificate
  • The petitioner or joint sponsor’s most recent federal income tax returns (if you are listed as a dependent)
  • A signed, written statement describing the relationship.

Once the household member has been added to your case (this could take up to one hour to display), please upload the household member’s supporting documents, such as tax forms or W-2 forms, and submit the documents for review.

Interesting news on China.. for those visiting spouses or about to go for interviews etc.. 

 

the US have today barred all Non-US Citizens and LPRs arriving from mainland China due to coronavirus.. returning citizens will be screened and filtered through a limited number of airports and quarantined for 14 days

 

no idea when this bar bar will be lifted.. I assume once a vaccine has been developed

Hi guys ,

I need  help .  my husband filled out taxes for 2019 and did so through H&R Block which despite the information given (Married submitting separately) made him single.  he was not able to check before payment and the tax preparer said that everything was ok according to what had been submitted.  We’ve  been talking to them for 3 days and they haven't found a solution.  they did wait  now for information from IRS to request an amendment but it could take weeks.  I was approved by NVC on 23/01 and I am waiting for my IL.  but I probably won't have all the papers at the time of the interview due to their mistake.  has anyone ever had this problem.  ?  I despair .  there is still a problem and after 18 months of waiting already I do not want my visa to be refused or to be in AP for someone else's mistake.  Thanks for your help

Hello everyone!  When we submit the pictures, should we scan two pictures next to each other (the head shot with the white background), or only one, or should we do two, one on each page?

We did have same issue and we filed for  amendments for it to show married filing separately. Unfortunately, it takes several weeks to fix it. Good luck.

Hello, If your spouse is filling out your I130a form to add to the I130 form. Is she going  to leave signature space empty on the I130a or does she has to mail the documents for me to sign and send back to her. thanks
