Interview for AOS with I-130 sutil pending?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So my husband and I have the interview for AOS on January 24th but I checked the online status of the I-130 and it still says "Inicial Review". I am confused, isn't the I-130 supposed to be approved before the AOS interview? Has this happened to anybody here before? Input is appreciated it. Thanks!

Sorry about the typo n the title.

It's fine and no need to worry about that. When I had my interview back in November last year, I clearly remember that the I-130 was still under initial review. And as soon as I passed the interview, the next day the I-130 started to show petition approval. Just relax and prepare for your coming AOS interview.
