I recently found out that I will be working overseas starting later this year (Oct). My fiance is still waiting for an interview date for k-1 visa, we've sent in all of the paper work. I'm guessing that he will get a July date. I would like to be married and have all the paperwork and interviews for AOS finished before I leave, but I know that it will take at least 3 months...I'm in need of Advice ASAP. Thanks in advance.

no advise but he needs to be in the USA before you leave which is possible. AOS interview for Oct. 2011 is highly unlikely. Are you an interest of the govt.?

I will not be working under the US gov but it is only a 1 yr position. If the interview is a problem is there a possibility of delaying it until I come back??

...

Any suggestions for who I should contact about my situation?

suggest to take holiday time if there's an interview.

I don't think the interview would be an issue, the interview is really easy as long as your fiance knows you well and she knows your personal information then she should not be worried about the interview it won't take a long time 5 minutes is the most.

I am not sure as to who to tell you to contact - How long will you be working overseas? Your fiance has 6 months after the visa is issued to use it - Once he enters the US, you have to marry here and then he cannot leave the US until you adjust status / get advance parole - Are you intending to leave him here in the US alone? Another factor is to check what country you are going to - he might need a visa there.

well the interview could be a problem if the immigration is brought into the country and then "Let Go." Meaning you then take off for a year. It's like what was the point opt for a K-1 ( a little faster) only to leave him here shortly after.

I don't think the interview would be an issue, the interview is really easy as long as your fiance knows you well and she knows your personal information then she should not be worried about the interview it won't take a long time 5 minutes is the most.

I think a 5 minute interview on a stand alone applicant where they would expect the other part wont "just be 5 minutes.." otherwise why request both parties.

He would stay with family until he got his AOS-GC, but then he would be able to join me... he will need a schengen visa to get into the country where I will be working because he would still be a jamaican citizen.

We haven't got an interview date yet, do embassies consider cases where there are time constraints, as far as scheduling is concerned?

You also have to factor in that he is getting a conditional GC, then has to lift conditions in two years - A GC puts time constraints on how long you are out of the country, so living outside of the US could lead to more problems.

IF there is a Green Card Interview at a local USCIS office, both must attend. So IF you get an appointment for a local interview, take holiday time from your overseas job, and attend that interview.

Once your spouse has the green card, suggest not to stay out of the USA for longer than 6 months at a time. Some CBP officers give ya grief even if less than 6 months, when returning through a USA POE.

IMO, what yer chasing after is do-able, but it will involve trips in/out of the country. Trips for you to attend the local interview (If there is one) and trips for her to come to you, maintain her RESIDENCY in the USA.

Not normal, not standard, but manageable if you pay attention to the calendar.
