    DS230 is packet 3 so would say yes you need to sign it plus anyone else who is going with you, depends if your fee has been paid as DS230 will not be asked until it has been paid, No reason tho why lawyer couldn't get it ready now

    Yes it will affect your processing as nothing will be done until fee is paid this in turn means you will get visa later rather than sooner once retrogression is sorted

    Is your aunt your employer? You only have approval for the job, and nothing more. The fee needs to be paid for the visa before the USCIS will issue the DS-230, and then that needs to be completed and approved before you can go onto anything else.

    The I-140 is only the initial petition for the job, and that alone. You are just at the beginning of the process, not the end.

    Nothing further will get done until they get their money.

    All of the above mentioned packets need to be done by the employer, there is nothing that you can do to facilitate any of it. Green cards for nurses are employer-driven. You will need to have an employer petition you.

    All comes down to if the attorney filed the appropriate documents and USCIS does not need to requesr anything else. Then how fast that the employer pays the bill for the visa, or who ever is paying for it. That is where the biggest delay is going to be right now, most employers are not paying it until they know of a definite date that visas will be available again.

    Could be just two months or so, or more than a year.
