arrowAOS Interview - Can you Reschedule?

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?

Hi everyone! I'm starting my AOS process and I'm a little confused about name change. I understand that you can change to your new last name on the I-485 (that's correct right?), but can I put my maiden name as my middle name? I did not have a middle name before. Thanks for your help.

Hello there!


The last time I posted here was in July I think... :) My son and I are supposed to apply for our US Visit visa but decided to renew my passport first and yeah it took months.


On Friday, Dec. 9, we are going to Calgary office to apply and hopefully be approved.


Wish us luck my friends! :) I will keep you posted!

Hello everyone,


I'm on a K1 visa process in Montreal. Our case was approved and yesterday I received a letter from Consulate General of the USA from Montreal. They want me to send a proof of my Canadian citizenship (I was born in France but I'm also Canadian since June 2015) by email.

They provide a link in the letter: http://canada.usembassy.gov/contact/public-inquiry-form.html

This link is invalid, so I tried to find an email somewhere on the consulate's website and I found "montreal-iv-dv@state.gov" in the contact us section, question regarding immigrant visa applications.

I sent my certificate of citizenship there and just received an automatic answer saying that the time of processing email is 8 weeks... and that we better not try to call them...

I'm really discouraged about this invalid link :crying:


Did someone have to deal with the same issue? Or maybe even have a right link to send?


That would be so helpful...

Thank you thank you

Hi there. I am a Canadian moving to the US soon on a K1-Fiance Visa. About 3 weeks ago we got a letter in the mail saying our petition has been approved and is now being sent to the NVC from there to Montreal Consulate. I haven't received my checklist in the mail yet...just wondering when I should expect my interview date to aproximately be?
