Everything is online? My stuff has been sent to the Buenos Aires embassy due to it being expedited. I need to wait for them to mail me a packet or do you say I can do some stuff online in the mean time?

I have a question, how important is for me (petitioner) to be present in the interwiew? Or going to the interwiew with her is a must?

I wasn't at Daisy's interview.

If you have a strong case that you feel will pass the interview then no problem if you decide not to attend the interview. I believe that it can help but it is not necessary. I was at my wife's interview, but for me it was more support for her and the curiosity of how the process works during the interview. I felt that she could do this on her own but the experience of what an Embassy is like that drove me to want to attend. I for one, would not miss it, as it truly is an experience on how government works. But like I said, it's not necessary for you to be there.

Good luck
