Status Change From F2A to IR1 at U.S. Consulate

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I am so frustrated now. Please help me out with this complicated situation!

I filed my husband in August 2013 on category F2A. Our case received an interview notice in April 2014. Unfortunately we experienced the big retrogression for F2A while we preparing for the interview. I didn't want just wait for the priority date become current, so I filed naturalization application in June 2014. I thought I could get my citizenship in at most 4 months, but I was wrong, it took me 8 months to get the interview. I got my citizenship certificate on April 2nd, 2015. My husband's old category(F2A) will become current in May 2015, but I reported my status change to the U.S. consulate, they replied me and only said that they have changed my case from F2A to IR1, then I got back to the state.travel.gov to change my visa category and tried to get my interview scheduled, but I couldn't!!! The system doesn't recognize my case number anymore!! GOOD GOLLY!! What should I do next? How long do I need to wait for the interview appointment can be made?! Please help me!!

If anyone knew the answer, please reply! Thank you for your patience!

Best too all!!!!
