CR-1 Interview Date scheduled

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Ugh!!! So, as luck would have it, my wife is about to board a plane CONUS-bound in 36 hours and I (as her agent) get a letter from the US consulate from New Delhi stating that her CR-1 interview has been scheduled for October 12th. I HATE this :-)

Obviously the tickets have already been bought etc., so she is coming over.

My question is -- is it worth going back to India to get this CR-1 at this stage or is AOS still a better choice? I am totally confused and could use some suggestions either way.

Thanks in Advance,

KP

I would consider calling the consulate and see if you could postpone the interview to maybe early next year when your wife (and you) might be ready for a trip back home, seeing as you have already paid for the CR-1, otherwise the AOS can still be done here, but I think I heard that Atlanta has a long wait time (?) (also think I read the interview people are not the nicest there either) so it might be awhile there too before you get an interview.

Good Luck on whatever you decide.

1-You've alrady paid for the IV apopintments--that will be money lost

2-how much is the plane ticket? Add it all up with the AOS fees and the IV money lost

3-Atlanta DO used to take 3 years for AOS--what are they doing these days (I hear it might be better?)

4-How does wife feel about flipping back 'home' in a couple of weeks?

Me, I'd go with the IV, but that's me. :)
