Possible to have interview within the US?

Hi guys, long time no post. This might turn out to be a daft question but I'm getting fed up with the process, so please bear with me:


Does anyone know if it's possible to hold my final visa interview within the US? Such as at a USCIS office?


I'm in the British merchant navy, working for the Ministry of Defence. As such I work for four months at sea followed by three months leave. In the last two years I have been spending this leave time in the US, on 90-day tourist visas, with my American wife and her family. It is very difficult to pin down where I am going to be at any time in the future.

The London embassy keeps offering me interview appointments when I am in the US and thus unable to attend (short of a round-trip flight). I know the US is touchy about adjusting one's status within the country but I wonder if I could get my paperwork transferred to the States and have the final interview conducted there.

I realise this probably all sounds bizarre to most people but I did choose a ridiculous career. Should have gone to work at Burger King...

I would very much appreciate any advice on the subject,

Thanks,

Tom

Nope you sure can note. If you want to stay here and you already filed the I-130 your next step is to file adjustment of status (I-485) but you can not leave the US and have to stay here until you are approved. And right now thats taking almost a year.

Do yourself a favor and just buy the round trip ticket to go the interview. Personally, I think you're going to have a hard time keeping your residency requirement on your green card when you spend more time out of the country than in the country with your job.
