Hi all, I'm a Canadian who married an American in WA in April under a K-1 visa.
On November 22, 2016, we received our Request for Applicant to appear for initial interview for our Form I-485 Application to register permanent residence or adjust status.
It set our interview date for December 19, 2016. Problem though is we have flights booked and have invested a lot of money to spend time with my great aunt.
Instead of checking with visajourney forums about rescheduling an interview, I just called the USCIS Service Center and put in a request to reschedule.
On Dec. 2, I received an email from USCIS saying that my request to reschedule my interview was approved and that I would receive a new notice once a new appointment was scheduled.
It was only after receiving this email that I read up on visajourney about the perils of trying to reschedule AOS interviews. And now I am VERY NERVOUS!
As it's been 5 days since we received the email saying that our request to reschedule has been approved, I decided to check our I-485 receipt number on the government's website and it is still listing us as having the interview on December 19.
I've heard horror stories of people receiving approval of a change in interview date by USCIS but that they fail to notify the local office, who still expects you to show up the original date and therefore deny you when you miss the date.
So what the heck should I do?
Make an appointment to speak with someone at the USCIS office we'd be doing the interview at before we're supposed to leave?
Reschedule our trip, not knowing whether our date is still on Dec. 19 or will be moved, as per our original request?
