Can the F3 VISA process be DELAYED once PD becomes current and our file transfered to US Embassy in UK

Although we have waited a very long time for the day our PD actually becomes current....our family circumstances/ priorities may change - I have a query please which may or my not happen..... if we say that PD is current and the case is transferred ready for applicants interview at embassy- how long do we have to decide to fix up interview?
I only ask as our petition is 1 main applicant and 3 derivatives.... it may be the case that 2 of the derivatives will not wish to make any sort of move in the next few years due to education etc so basically if this is the case then i would be looking at delaying it for these 2 and the other 2 will proceed as normal - i know that we could perhaps apply for a 2 year re-entry permits a coupe of times each but this can be costly etc so i would be looking to perhaps purposely delay for the 2 x children until we are given an ultimatum that they need to decide one way or another
Hope the above query makes sense

You can delay the whole process, but that does not seem to be what you want to do, derivatives can also age out.


Once those who wish to move now have their GC they also currently have the potential to petition.
