Need to reschedule biometrics appointment; also leaving US

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Husband got his biometrics appt (July 9) but will be traveling for work during that time. So, we need to reschedule that and are planning on checking the "request for rescheduling" box and sending the form back as instructed.

However, we are also moving back to Chile on August 2nd and planning on settling there and turning in my husband's GC at the embassy in Santiago. (Weird, I know, after all this work! But we want to settle down in Chile!)

I'm worried that we'll get rescheduled again for biometrics for before we're actually out of the US. I know a failure to appear means we're abandoning the petition, and I don't want to do that until we're physically in Chile.

Wondering if anyone has experience with this? I guess if needed we could just keep rescheduling, right? Want to make sure there are no flaws in our rather strange plan.

Anyone?

Bueller...Bueller?

I think I'll just reschedule the biometrics; not sure what else we should or could do in this situation. (Funny that USCIS actually works quicker the one time you would prefer them to be slow... :sleepy:)

Just wanted to check in case anyone had any input. Thanks!

Thanks for your suggestion axnstef! It's a bit of a drive for us, though, and my husband doesn't have ANY time off until we leave for Chile august 2. The idea is to put off the biometrics appointment as long as possible so that we don't actually have to do it, since we're going to be stopping the removal of conditions process anyway, once in Chile. Just want to make sure we won't have any problems if we do keep "rescheduling."
