If you still need to obtain the forms to get the Process started then you have two options in obtaining the forms. They can all be ordered directly from the INS for free, you can order them from their website, that is where I got mine, or you can call toll-free to 1-800-870-3676. It took about 2 weeks to get them when I ordered mine from the website.
