Notification of interview v.2.0

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Brief summary of situation:

Married June 21st, got NOA1 on AOS on July 16th, biometrics scheduled in late August.

Initial problem background for anonymous readers: Wanting to get green card prior to November 1st so that David (foreign beneficiary) is able to apply for graduate school. School admissions update: As long as he has a green card prior to the start of school and has a pending application until then, he can apply his heart out. However, if he wants to apply for FAFSA, he has to have the green card prior to the deadline, which is in February.

Thus: we applied in July, instead of waiting longer.

Second and current problem: We are having our religious ceremony in Seattle (live in the east coast right now) and spending a couple weeks in Hawaii for a honeymoon. Are not only concerned about getting the interview date sometime in that timeframe, but additionally that we may not receive notice of getting an interview letter at all (i.e. we leave for Seattle on September 8th and come back September 27th. What if the letter comes on September 10th for a September 25th interview date? we would never know)

Question:

Has anyone had any experience with making an infopass with their local office asking if they know when the interview date is? We are prepared to fly out of Hawaii if need be. We discussed together that we would rather waste the $$ on the honeymoon than get a rip-off private student loan interest rate vs a government loan interest rate.

I've read on one case here that someone made an infopass, brought all their supporting evidence and docs and actually got the interview on the same day. Anyone else had experience/stories about this?

I have already:

-Called USCIS to ask if we can inquire about interview dates, if they've already been set. After annoying the first-level rep, got a CO and was told no. Quite frustrating since you could call DOS and ask at the consular level.

-Attempted to find the local office number but they are unlisted and USCIS is not allowed to give you the number

-Starting to make friendly faces with neighbors in the hallways of my apartment complex as they go to work and I am sleepy coming home from the night shift :lol: but I would prefer not to let a random stranger check my mail every day for three weeks.

-Read up on changing the interview dates...does not look good. And David's status is our priority. Even if we have to fly out on a Thursday, have the interview on Friday, and then fly back to Seattle that night for our wedding at the church at 2pm.

...

Praying for a CSC transfer!

OH MY GOODNESS.

Literally, went straight over to USCIS to check the status after posting the first post since it's been down all day and THEY TRANSFERRED OUR CASE!!!!! :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:

Um. Wow. Super happy.

Ran into the bedroom, shrieked happiness at hubby who promptly declared I nearly gave him a heart attack but that he still loves me. I would have been stressed the entire time we were gone if we didn't know before we left for Seattle.

Now...to hope and pray that we get the approval by February 1st or so...and that there won't be another set of poor February filers who were stuck for so long.

ON TO WALK-IN BIOMETRICS!

So...any comments about the first post though? Just for any future readers who might utilize the search button if they have similar circumstances...

yay!!!

We had a lot more than a couple of weeks' notice of the interview date (rec. Feb 11th for Mar 15th interview). And...you might still get an interview date if the adjudicator at CSC notices anything. It's highly unlikely, yes, but don't count anything as done until you've got the goods!
