Hi,

I have file a petition for my on July, 2017 and my case was sent to Potomac Service Center.

On Jan, 2019 I got a letter that my case was sent to a local field office for processing.

 

On March, 08 I got a letter from the local office asked me to come for the interview  next month.

 

Is it usual to go for the interview because my wife is overseas and why they are interviewing me?

Please can someone answer and tell me what documents should I take with me?

They can ask for you to attend the interview. It is not common but it is also not unusual. They can ask for whomever to attend the interview.

It happens sometimes when they need more information from you before approving the I-130. There was one person from my February 2016 I-130 filers group who had to attend a local interview. She had to take additional evidence of the bona fide nature of their marriage with her.
