1.  The NVC processing is finished .. they have all the documents required 

2. Your application is now in the queue for an interview in Haiti 

3. Once NVC is able to assign you an interview slot ,they will notify you and also send your application packet to the consulate 
4. When the consulate has received the packet they will advise you what you need to do next and how to prepare for the interview

As lil bear says above. Though would mention that your lawyer is a professional and this is a DIY site so not sure what you mean by looking for “more professional” information? Your lawyer should also be able to explain the details of the process.

If your lawyer is too busy to answer your questions you should get a new lawyer. He gets paid to help you, after all.

 

If your father is a citizen and filed an I130 for you before you turned 21 then you are protected under CSPA, and will be IR2 no matter how much time passes, as long as you don’t get married.

In my opinion, if your case is straight forward, I would drop the lawyer. You should not have to feel like you are going to upset him. As stated earlier, he works for you, not the other way around. This lovely forum is full of people who not only have been through the process but are very knowledgable due to length of time on this forum. 
 

if you drop the lawyer, you or whomever is paying for your lawyer, will save a lot of money.

How is a lawyer who won’t help you, avoiding problems?

 

You have what must be just about the easiest immigrant visa type out there - minor child of US citizen. I am assuming there is no issue in proving paternity etc, in which case I agree with the poster above, you don’t need a lawyer. Your lawyer seems to be telling you to do it all yourself anyway!

You paid your lawyer to help you with the process. You are the client and it is the lawyer's job to answer your questions. If the lawyer is too busy or gets too irritated, you should find a new lawyer, or learn enough about the process to do it yourself.

I’m sorry to hear of the issue with the lawyer. Unfortunately this is not uncommon but that doesn’t  help you right now. Take a deep breath and get done understanding of the process yourself do you don’t feel so reliant on being able to talk to the lawyer 

 

 There are no “set” questions unfortunately for any category of visa interview.   Assuming the paternity link evidence is not questionable , you may be asked questions like - 

your dads full name and birthdate 

where he lives in the US

his work /spouse/ other siblings 

what your plans are ( work school ?? ... no need for solid plans just thoughts)

rechecking answers you submitted on the DS260

 

If you don’t know an answer say “I don’t know”. Don’t make anything up. Don’t try to think what the IO might be wanting to hear. Be yourself. Be truthful. Nerves get in every bodies way at an interview. 

This is a very useful link .. do a lot of reading. Come back and ask questions as needed

Just to add, there are no “wrong” answers in the interview. Your eligibility for the visa rests entirely on the biological (or adopted or step if relevant) relationship to your father. Not knowing exact details about his work or spouse, or not having clear plans about what you want to do in the US, etc are not cause for denial. Denial would only be if the paternal relationship cannot be established, or if you have your own ineligibility for any immigrant visa (mainly this would be a criminal record).

I'm 21 yol now 2020, we started around (2017)2017=18y> I'm now 21y 2020 , I'm probably under CSpA > ir2 visa

 

Should I quit my School because NVC approve all my documents ?
Because we want to save money, i don't know if my embassy will be open???

I'm waiting the interview date, I'm probably an immediate relative  IR 2 category.
