I have seen mixed reviews about what to do in the case of the I-797 form expiring interviewing at the embassy. Some say these automatically roll over, others say to get in touch with the embassy (not sure with whom). Does anyone have experience with this?

Ours expires June 1 and is sitting at the Nicaraguan embassy. We are waiting on me to find a job and collect proof that we won't be a burden on the state before setting an interview date.

Although a K-visa petition is valid for 4 months, consular officers are able and will extend the validity. If the appointment was scheduled after the initial expiration date, you don’t need to move your appointment; the consular officer will take care of this issue at the interview.

You can also contact the IV unit to let them know you are delayed in scheduling an interview and want to make sure your I-129F petition will be extended for you > http://nicaragua.usembassy.gov/contact2.html
