Once the I-130 has been approved by USCIS it is transferred to the National Visa Center (NVC) (usually requiring 30-90 days) and registered in their PIMS System for subsequent approval verification by the applicable Consular Post. You should wait to pay fees until you have received further specific instructions from the NVC.

    I suggest that you work with an experienced immigration attorney to have the best chance of success.
