Quick interview date.. is this a good thing?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am a US Citizen. I married my English wife here in the U.S. on June 23, 2006. A few weeks after our wedding, we sent out an application packet including I 130, I485, I131,EAD. We have already her fingerprints taken and biometrics in mid August.

I recieved a notice from the USCIS on September 13, 2006 about a request for applicant to appear for initial interview on November 2, 2006. The USCIS only received our I485 and associated applications (Advance Parole, EAD) on July 14, 2006. Do you think that this is THE interview for the actual AOS approval, or should i expect another interview date in the future? I am skeptical because it seems very quick (only 3.5 months) compared to the published timelines and most accounts i have heard of. Also, we still havent even received approval of our Advance Parole and EAD yet... seems to be out of order.

If this is THE interview, can my wife and make plans to leave from the US on an extended honeymoon abroad shortly after the November 2 interview? Or will we have to wait additional time for them to review the interview and decide whether or not to grant her temperary conditional status?

I appreciate any help, advice or suggestions.

Thank you for your willingness to help me through this journey.

There is only one AoS interview. I do not know the time lines for your office, but yes they do appear quick.

Never to wise to plan travel without AP or GC in hand, as far as the GC is concerned they may not have completed the security checks, so you never can guarantee that a succesful interview will produce the GC.

This is THE interview indeed! Good luck!

But don't plan anything yet: if you're approved and you don't get your stamp right away, you may have to wait a few weeks, sometimes more, before getting your GC.
