I am starting a new thread about our journey. Hopefully it will answer some of your questions about I-751 interviews. I have had two other threads about our pending I-751. I will reference them here:

I found out through the Representative's office and USCIS 800# that my step-daughter does not have to attend the interview. We just need to follow the instructions in the Interview Notice. Great news because she is in Oregon attending the University and it would have been another expense to get her here for the interview.

Should I be worried about the last statement about possible video taping the interview? Is this normal on an interview letter? USCIS said this was a normal statement, but we are still concerned.

Why bring 2 passport photos? She just had her biometrics with pictures March 2, 2009.

Thanks. We are both a little concerned about this. I hope there is not any problem with our case.

Videotaping interviews is quite normal and nothing to be alarmed about. That is a fairly standard phrase to cover them if they do tape. There is a chance that they won't be taping as well - it doesn't really mean anything to worry about.

Bring the two passport photos - they may want ones that are more recent than the ones from the biometrics (or they may not, too - you may end up taking them home also )

Bring the originals of everything you submitted with the original I-751 plus bring originals and copies of documents that cover the time from when you submitted the application to the time of the interview. You can offer the copies to them to keep in their files. Bring the other items that they mention - tax receipts, lease or mortgage, etc. - the originals if you have already submitted copies, or copies and the originals if you haven't. You can order in the most recent tax transcripts for 2008 by calling the IRS. Try to bring a variety of different types of documents showing how you are mingling together your financial, social and personal lives. The more the better.

I wouldn't be worried too much. USCIS is required to have a certain number of interviews for statistical purposes which means that there is nothing out of place about your file and you just have the luck of the draw. Or, there may be something minor - you didn't sign where you were supposed to or something like that and they will take care of it at the interview. This is a standard interview letter, not a special one, and is designed to cover a lot of different reasons for having an interview.

Good luck.
