Argh, the wait for the interview date is torture!

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm waiting for the interview date and the wait is awful! I'm particularly nervous about it because we're being 'evicted' from our rented house March 22nd (rotten landlords want to re-rent it at a higher price!) so I really want us to be on our way to the US a day or two after that. I made sure I put in my cover letter the situation.

One thing I'm not sure on, does my husband need to be with me on point of entry? If we don't get my interview date in time it would be much more convenient for him to go over to his mums house in the US with one or both of the children rather than us all hang out in a hotel while we wait for everything to be done. I'm not sure if he needs to be with me when I enter the US though.
