      Hi kevinngo,

      it sounds like USCIS somehow got the idea that your wife will go through consular processing in her country instead of adjusting status in the US.

      Have you filed I-485 also? if yes, when?

      I am not sure of the procedure now if you would to re-route the petition from NVC to your local office for the interview. You can try to call NVC and ask.

      If you leave it the way it is, NVC will send some more papers and bills, and then forward the petition to the consulate in your wife's country. After that she would be scheduled for an interview there.

            yeh..let's figure out where the mistake happened (Impenetrable Q)..

            in the meantime, yes - you and your wife will be interviewed before she will get GC (temporary GC if you have been married less than 2 years at the time of approval - usually at the interview).

              to be more precise: the above will happen if your wife is going to adjust status in the US. If she is going through consular processing and getting immigrant visa first, only she has to attend the interview abroad.

                  If any document is missing, the common procedure for CIS is to send RFE ( request for additional evidence).

                  If your wife is in US and eligible to Adjust her status ,and you properly answered to Q. #14 and Q. #22, then I see no reason why would USCIS send you DS-230 which is , to my knowledge, for consular processing.

                  BTW, why didn't you submit I-485 along with I-130 (since you are USC your spouse is not subject to numerical CAP and doesn't need to wait for approval of I-130 to file I-485)?

                  If you filed/file I-485 , you also have to submit Form I-325A ( Biographic Information Sheet for beneficiaries between the ages of 14 and 79), and Form I-864 (Affidavit of Support).


                  Good luck,

                      You don't think you did it wrong way, you either did or you did not.

                      The best way to check is to look at the copies of papers you sent to USCIS, find where the mistake was and correct it (or demand correction, if the error is due to service center adjudicator).


                      Best of luck,

                          Why don't you follow your dirtbag spouse all the way to Vietnam and live ever happily with her there?

                            "If you reside in the United States, file this form at the USCIS Service Center having jurisdiction over your place of residence." (from the I-130 instructions); NVC is not a Service Center.

                            I would recommend you call NVC and see what can be done.

                              As OP stated "After INS approved and sent my case to NVC,I received the package from NVC..",
                              meaning he originally sent his I-130 to CIS Service Center.

                              Question is: why did CIS send approved I-130 petition to NVC if the beneficiary is in US and eligible to AOS ?

                              (The OP avoids giving the clear answer to above, instead he now claims that "all documents" he sent to "NATIONAL VISA CENTER 32 ROCHESTER AVENUE PORTSMUOTH,NH-03801".

                              I think we can ignore him from now on as it sounds like next he will claim to have received some sort of the package from the Moon )
