Rescheduling an Interview

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

To all who will read this and help me, thank you in advance!

I can't express my gratitude.

I know there are many cases like this, and I read them. I am familiar with the risks.

My problem is the following:

I am married to a US active duty service member.

I received an interview date (initial interview it says) for 26th of September. Unfortunately my husband is currently attending a school that is pivotal to his career and they are not letting him out for that date. His school finishes 28th of September. I reliase we fall under those circumstances that allow us to reschedule an interview.

But the letter I received just had a telefone number for me to call, no address or any other 'steps' telling me how to reschedule. I eventually did file a request for rescheduling, but been told that I will have an answer in 30 work days. You see, I don't have 30 days, and I have been told there is nothing they can do for me.

I read in this forum about writing a formal letter and attaching the notice and my husband's paperwork. I want to do that, but I have no idea whom to write the letter and which address to send it. (Our local office is New Orleans). Also, English is not my first language and I wonder if poorly written letter will do the job.

I further read that me going alone to the interview on that date, just to let them know 'Hey, I am not giving up my case, just my husband is not available' will help. So I think to do that too. (Although I am currently in Atlanta and will drive 8 hours just for that sentence).

So, if you read all this, my questions would be:

Where should I send my letter and his paperwork?

Is there something that I should absolutely not forget to mention in that letter?

Do you think 1) calling 2) sending a letter 3) going there is enough (because I didn't read any new threads, and there may be something I am missing)

Thank you so much awesome people for always finding time and energy to help!

Q. I received an appointment notice for my Adjustment of Status interview, but my military spouse (the petitioner) is currently deployed. Will the USCIS office conduct the interview without my spouse being present?

A. Yes. USCIS will conduct your Adjustment of Status interview without the presence of your military spouse (the petitioner) if he or she is currently deployed. At your interview, you should bring evidence of your spouse’s military assignment abroad, such as a photocopy of the official orders or a letter from your spouse’s commanding officer. You should also bring any other evidence requested on your interview notice.

I appreciate your reply.

BUT my husband is not deployed. He is in the States, attending school for 5 weeks, which ends September 28, 2016. Interview date is September 26.

And I need help with the exact questions I asked, because I didn't find my answers anywhere on the Internet.

Thank you all again.
