Interview Scheduled - Best text ever!

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Just got a text from USCIS that hubby's case has been updated - hubby's interview has been scheduled!!!  WOOHOO!! (Sadly, the system doesn't say what day it's set for, but we'll get the notice in the mail soon.)  Time to go get that medical appt done and wrap up the last few items to bring for our evidence binder.  Must remember to add our joint tax return since we just filed!

 

So exciting!!!!!!  :) :) :) :)

Interview set for 4/16.  Medical exam Tuesday (4/2).  Evidence binder nearly finished!

 

Question for those who have already gone through this: Do you bring copies of everything USCIS has already sent to you?  (All the I-797C's and anything else that's pertinent?)  

 

Also, when I spoke with the doc's office while setting up the appt, the lady I spoke with said that she was pretty sure the doc will give hubby a copy of the report as well as send a copy to USCIS.  Is it standard that both copies are sealed?  While I know we should have enough time between the appt date and the interview date for immigration to receive the medical report, I'd much prefer to have an extra sealed copy just in case.  (And I told the woman while scheduling the appt when hubby's interview is scheduled for and she said yes, that's enough time to have the report complete, should only take a couple days.)

 

Thanks!!

I did just in case, but we weren't asked for any originals at all. Just "any additional evidence if you have it". I'd still bring it. EAD and all that as well.

Uh... They should not be sending anything to USCIS. Don't let them send it to USCIS. You bring it with you to the interview. 

 

They should give you a sealed packet that contains your form, you hand that over to the IO when they ask for it. 

 

They will also give you a copy (well, these guys will, I don't know if every civil surgeon does). In my case, they just emailed me a copy. This is only for your records.

Thank you!  I'll make sure to let hubby know to press for the sealed copy.  (Sadly I can't make it to the medical appt with him.)

I'm surprised they even offer the option... They're not supposed to be sending anything at any point. 

 

If they were to send it, and we assume that it actually gets sent to the right place, reaches an officer who actually attaches it to the right application, and actually sends it to your field office... It will still have been received after your interview. 

 

To speed things up, make sure he has his TDAP booster if it's been more than 9 years since the last shot, and the records show all other appropriate childhood vaccines. Plus flu--is it still the season?

Anything can get lost in the mail, 

It's entirely possible that the woman I spoke with wasn't fully informed of the process.  Fingers crossed!  I had a couple questions about vaccinations which she had to get back to me on.

Yeah, they said he'll need the flu shot :(

Appt was very simple and went well!  And, he didn't need the flu shot!  (Guessing perhaps April was the end of the "flu season".)  

 

Hubby had the TDAP shot when he saw the doc in November, and we were able to provide evidence of that.  Doc also took all of the bloodwork we had to confirm the presence of antibodies to confirm that he had his childhood vaccinations (as the Alberta Dept of Health couldn't locate his vaccine records.)  So woohoo!  No more pokes!  :)  

 

Sealed envelope will be ready for pick up tomorrow!

 

(Just in case anyone is running a search and looking - doc was $350, no vaccinations included.)
