Petitioner unable to attend interview

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi. I just received the notice that my father's AOS interview has been scheduled and we will receive the date in the mail. From what I've read, typically the interview date is 4 to 6 weeks after receiving the email notice. In 5 weeks I (his sponsor) have to go to London because my mother, who is being treated for cancer, has to have a surgery and she is all alone. If my father's interview clashes with this trip, will that be a problem? Or is the sponsor not required to attend a parent's interview? Is it recommended that they do attend, if able? Thanks for any information.

I know that at the American embassy in my country, I’m not allowed to enter EVEN the building. Some countries allow the petitioner in the waiting area, and a very select few embassies (Dominican Republic, Ecuador) let you join the interview with your parent.

My point is, no the sponsor is NOT required to attend the interview.
