INTERVIEW related to RFE

Hello,

i don't know if I am in the right thread but I had a question about the interview. I know there is no script but do they use the information from your packet to ask questions? 

 

My husband and I have a difficult case. We got a very complicated RFE. I have dual citizenship. I was born in Mexico and I am requesting a waiver for my husband who is also from Mexico. The RFE stated to have more information based on hardship and credibility. It wasn't believed that I would leave to Mexico with him and also staying in the u.s. Is what I would choose since I make more money than him. We sent a psych report which was never sent in the beginning (I know big mistake). My husband also has DACA. 

 

I know we haven't gotten approved but I am being hopeful that we provided a good RFE packet to get approved. I know I am thinking ahead since most people are saying that it is taking 6-7 months for an interview. I am worried that the questions will be regarding getting an RFE or asking about me being Mexican? Does anyone have a similar story as mine?

Generally, yes.

They may ask about whatever was in the RFE. Since you haven't stated what the RFE is about, there's no way to know.

You being Mexican and American doesn't matter at all.

The RFE stated that I need to prove hardship in scenerio a) hardship staying in The U.S without my husband b) hardship if I live in Mexico with my husband.

 

I rewrote my declaration stating the hardships of both scenerios. Talked about my profession as a teacher and the support for mental health, religious beliefs,  provided psych evaluation report. Additional letter from my principal and colleagues. Letters written from parents and siblings.
