Interview before EAD??

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

My husband went in for his bio-metrics appt on 1/4/2013. He is adjusting from the VWP, anyway.... Yesterday I received a text that his interview letter was mailed out. I'm a little shocked it happened so fast and before his EAD was approved or sent out.

Is this normal?

Should we be worried that the interview was set up so fast?

I've checked the status of his I-130 (which was sent out in Sept) and that hasn't been touched since 12/12/12. It's still in initial review!

I guess I'm a little confused b/c you expect a certain progression and when things get out of order or to fast it worries me. With him adjusting from the VWP (due to medical issues with my daughter) I'm a bit more paranoid something is wrong when things dont goes as planned.

Has this happened to anyone else?

Yu should join the November filers and you will get good answers there because some people are getting their interviews. I got a text that I'm in interview scheduling so should soon get my letter from them I hope.
