Default K3 - I130 question

Hi all,

My wife is here on a K3 visa. The original I-130 is still pending. In the Federal register for the K3 visa it says that I should notify the service center which I sent the I-130 .. and that they will notify National Visa Center so they can return the approved I-130 form to the Service Center. I guess this prevents the I-130 from being sent abroad??

My question is... What is the best way to notify the service center (texas in my case) about this? I was planning to write a cover letter explaining my situation and including the excerpt from the federal register. I then was going to include the notice of action for the I-130 and the approval notice for the K3 visa, as well as a copy of the I-94 and of the K3 visa.

Should this be sufficient?

The following is taken from the federal register:
"Petitioners who have previously stated on an
approved Form I-130 that the beneficiary would visa process abroad should notify the Service that they now intend to apply for a K-3/K-4 nonimmigrant visa and will be applying for adjustment of status to that of lawful permanent resident in the United States. The Service will then request that the Department of State's National Visa Center (NVC) return the approved Form I-130 to the Service Center with jurisdiction."
