“My wife and I are RapidVisa customers. Our CR1 spouse petition was approved a few days ago. As a beneficiary and a RapidVisa customer, I want to know what documents must I send or mail to my wife for her to submit along with her civil documents on NVC? In other words, what are the missing required documents I must send to my wife at this time?”

The  National Visa Center (NVC) will send you a detailed checklist of what is required next, including evidence. After an I-130 petition is approved, it’s sent to the NVC. Then you’re going to receive a request to pay visa fees and once you pay those fees you’ll receive a checklist of documents. You will also have to fill in a full and complete DS-160 form, that contains key information and biographical details. 

There are two sets of documents that you’ll need to provide to the NVC. The first are financial documents and your affidavit of support. Then you’ll also have a packet with civil documents. Civil documents can be birth certificates, marriage certificates, divorce decrees, security clearances, and background checks. But you will receive a detailed checklist, and we recommend sending exactly what the NVC requested. A lot of the other evidence for your relationship and things like that can also be taken to the embassy.
