The "NVC", in case you haven't already noticed, is akin to a "sinking ship" - very low budget left, apocalyptically ever increasing case load; very low morale & apathy among its employees.
Consequently, don't "bother" them - they will not pay any attention nor will that move the proverbial "needle" by even one tenth of a millimeter... Simply relax and wait for them to contact you when the time comes - which will be many months from now.

The answer above is only general in nature and cannot be construed as legal advice, given that not enough facts are known. It is your responsibility to retain a lawyer to analyze the facts specific to your particular situation in order to give you specific advice. Specific answers will require cognizance of all pertinent facts about your case. Any answers offered on Avvo are of a general nature only, and are not meant to create an attorney-client relationship.
Slow down. This process takes a long time. Be patient and wait for them to contact you in a few months.
