No interview by I-129f approval expiration date?

Timeline

My I-129f approval expires on Feb 9th 2008. I still haven't gotten my packet 3 from the embassy in Jamaica. What will happen if we don't get an interview date before 2-9-08, since that is when my I-129f approval expires?

You're case will still be reviewed by the embassy. My petition expired on October 25, 2007, and my fiance just had his interview December 11, 2007. The packets were not received until September 24th. From what NVC told me as long as the embassy has notification they can extend the approval date on the I129 petition.

Hopefully this helps

The consular post may at its discretion extend the validity of an I129F petition. So, if they haven't scheduled/conducted the interview before it experience, they should extend it.
