Combined NVC Process for Parents

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I filed I-130 forms for my parents, and they were approved 4 months apart. 

My mother's NVC case number was created 4 months ago, her AOS and IV fees were paid, and IV application (Form DS-260) was submitted. We kept the remaining steps on hold until my father gets approved so they can proceed in the NVC process together and have a joint interview at the embassy.

My father's I-130 was approved this week, and earlier this morning, we received the NVC case creation email for him, with a new case number, different than my mother's case number that was created 4 months ago.

What surprised me is that the AOS fee in my father's NVC case that was just created is shown as (Paid), but I can't find any other indication that both cases are linked. Does this mean that both cases are already linked? Or do I still need to call/email NVC to link them?

What about financial documents to be uploaded, will uploading it in one case be automatically reflected on the other case? Or I'll be uploading the same documents twice? I'm going to have a joint sponsor. 

 

Thanks in advance.

the cases are already linked, the documents must be uploaded independently by each applicant

Great! Thanks for confirming. 
Does this link guarantee a joint interview at the embassy?

There are never any guarantees in life, but they will almost certainly be interviewed together. The fact that the financial documentation fee shows paid is proof they are linked as Wals mentioned. I am just ahead of you with my parents Documentarily Qualified and waiting for the interview, which is on hold due to the immigration ban.


Good luck!
