Interview letter

16 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We received a letter saying that our petition has been relocated to the USCIS office located near me and that there will be a scheduled interivew and they will send a letter when an appointment is available. This was over a month ago. How long does it usually take to get the interview letter? It worries me it has been so long

I hear it's been taking a bit longer lately. It also depends on how busy your local office is. You might be able to get an update on your case by calling the help line and speaking to a Tier 2 representative. They should at least be able to tell you if something has been sent and was missed. Most likely they are just busy and you'll be told to "wait 90 days." That's their favorite line...

Sorry to hear you guys have been called in for an interview.

Will you share your interview experience with us all once it's happened? I know I'm interested in a walkthrough of the timeline as well as what the actual procedure was like, and even some example questions.

All the best.

Sorry to hear about the interview :/

Any idea why you have been asked to interview? Did they send you a RFE?

Interview notice timelines are dependent on the local office, the service center will only tell you to wait as they no longer have jurisdiction over the petition.

The waiting game continues...

Let us know how it goes and GOOD LUCK, you'll be fine! :)

good luck with your interview. Maybe you should call USCIS regarding the interview schedule?

I saw a post not a while ago and the couple request for interview, it only took 10 mins to finish the interview. So if your marriage is true, just do not worry. Good luck!

Ughh I was told in Sept we were going to be scheduled for an interview. Got the letter last week we are scheduled for 12/10. Not sure what to bring at this point except just updated from what we submitted in January.

We finally got out letter around Thanksgiving, our interview is this Tuesday!!! My husband is so worried but I keep telling him we have nothing to hide so it will be ok, plus we were probably randomly picked.

I have nothing new to bring, just the stuff we sent in. I have taxes starting from 2011,apartment lease, health insurance. I think that's it. We also have a credit card account in both our names but I haven't ;t been able to find something that shows it to print out.

Our Id's say different addresses, mine is from a place I lived at 4 years ago(before he moved here), and his says our old apt(we moved three months ago) Do you think this will matter? We can get it changed the day before the interview, but wouldn't that seem kind of suspicious? I know we need to update them anyways, but is it important to do this asap?

One more question, Do I also need to bring passport photos of myself?

Yes, get your DL's changed ASAP. That really should have been done right after you moved.

No, you don't need to bring any passport photos. And I see you have taxes from 2011. Did you submit more recent transcripts? If not, bring those as well. Good luck on your interview!

I wasn't nervous, but after searching ROC interviews on this forum for hours tonight, I am getting pretty nervous.....

I am getting everything together and here is what I have..
Tax transcripts from 2011-2013 (before I only submitted the papers I got from the tax website that I used, so these should be more official.) This is the only new thing I have to show
Health insurance with both names
Dental insurance with both names
Lease with both names

That is pretty much it. I have nothing else. We took a trip to Canada last May, but I didn't keep anything, all I have is an online itenerary(his mom bought us the tickets so her name is also on there) I don't think that will be helpful. Should I bother with pictures? We aren't really picture people and they have seen all the pictures we have, should I bring our photo album anyways? We also worked at the same company for two years, but I doubt they will read our tax info that closely to notice.

The more I am thinking about this, I think the issue is they were possibly confused with all the different addresses. My ID says one address from 4 years ago, his says our current address at the time, the return address on our packet was also our current address at the time, but when we were sending it in we just signed a lease for a new place, so I decided to mail that in also. Our old apt didn't have a lease.

Hopefully that made sense. We are definitely updating our identifiction tomorrow, then everything we have will all say the same address.
