Hi! I'm also going through the process and just got a notification that my interview was scheduled. I also live in San Antonio. I just have an inquiry... How long was the wait between receiving word that your interview was to be scheduled and getting the actual date for your interview? I'm a bit anxious. 

 

Best of luck at your interview! Fingers crossed. 


F1 (graduated) with pending AOS after marriage! ^_^

I-130 Interview Notice

In some cases, you may also receive a notice for an interview. This will also arrive on an I-797C document. Generally, USCIS interviews are scheduled to review your application, ask any questions the USCIS may have, and verify the information you submitted is accurate and true. In the case of the I-130, the USCIS may be specifically verifying the validity of your family relationship. The notice will include the date, time and location of the interview. It will also tell you what to bring, including any original documents that USCIS wishes to review in-person.

I found this very old thread: https://www.***removed***/forum/showthread.php/64181-I-130-interview-experience

The pretty much ask about how you met,  marriage, what USC does for work and where you live.   Just take your time and answer truthfully.  If you don't  understand something just ask.

Yes, 3 options.   Approved, Denied or Get/Update/Correct documents.   They will very clear if it is the later.

@Paul & Mary: Do you have personal (or secondhand) experience with an I-130 interview. It isn't time for the AOS interview yet. Are there other threads about the I-130 interview here in VJ (because I couldn't find any)?

I think this is more like our DCF I-130.  There are few DCFs and probably even less I-130s filed within the US. When I filed it in Juarez they reviewed our packet and ask a few questions.  When you do that they don't tell you anything other than they will notify you.  I though I failed!   It was approved the next business day. 

 

Take any new evidence of you relationship with you and any documents that you weren't sure you should include.   It is important to front load this "interview".

 

I believe after the approval they will process the AOS and need your husbands bio-metrics, etc.

 

Don't stress too much.  I believe that your husband can go with you and it might help things move along.  My only experience like this was a friend that married during a F-1 student visa and the process was the same.  There I-130 was approved the same day.  

 

Good luck ~Paul

Just covering all bases: Were you born near the Texas-Mexico border between the 1950s and 1990s, and delivered by a (after the fact) blacklisted doctor or midwife (e.g. Dr. Jorge Treviño, etc.)?
