Interveiw Scheduled for FEB 10th

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

FINALLY after another year and a half of waiting we got our interveiw. Just some background we were reaffirmed after a denial in July 2009. I still have a hunch they are going to give us a hard time because the consulate requested that I bring his original expired passport, overstay paperwork, and court records. These items have already been requested and provided to NVC and/or DHS...shouldn't they have received that/maybe didnt look at the case yet.

I will be attending the interview with my husband and I am praying they will let us submit the waiver this time.

Does being reaffirmed give us any more hope for this interview to go smoothly. (being that our situation has not changed) I just want to be allowed to submit our waiver.

What are the questions that might be asked of us at interveiw.

Any last minute advice is much appreciated.


If I could be anything, I would be a tear.

Born in your eye, Live on your cheek, and Die at your lips.

Being reaffirmed means that between your original facts and the consulate notes and any new info you provided they agree that you have a valid petition. Supposedly the only way to deny now is a material fact NOT known to USCIS. This may be why they want so much stuff from you , looking for that overlooked fact.


This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

Holy Re-Affirmation, BatMan !

Seriously - this is the best news...

Now to 'get them to do some work'.

This evidence may or may not be scattered to the wind, in storage or not -

The BIG THING that you need to 'get across' to that IV unit staff -

is that THEY have to request the case file addendums from the USCIS adjudication officer that re-affirmed yer case, if they can't find the addendums IN the casefile when it comes in to the IV unit.

It's a slippery slope, to be sure, and if I were in yer shoes, I'd write a letter similar to the one below:

Dear Consulate IV Staff -

My husband has an interview with your office on (fill in date here). I am concerned that you will be asking for court records and apostilled forms that were recently submitted to the USCIS adjudicator's office, specifically (name of case officer here)'s office at (internal USCIS postal routing code here) .

I ask that you do an eyeball review NOW of the casefile, and ascertain whether or not the additional documentation that you will be needing, made it with the casefile from (insert name of case officer here)'s office. If you find that documents are missing now, I feel strongly that IF you request them from (insert name of case officer here)'s office, he can get them to you in a timely fashion, to match up with the heretofore scheduled interview date.

Respectfully Submitted,

-------

Good Luck, lass - I'm pulling for ya !


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

-=-=-=-=-=R E A D ! ! !=-=-=-=-=-

Whoa Nelly ! Want NVC Info? see http://www.visajourney.com/wiki/index.php/NVC_Process

Congratulations on your approval ! We All Applaud your accomplishment with Most Wonderful Kissies !
