At the bottom of the biometrics appointment letter, there is a check box if you want to request for rescheduling with your application number and bar code below it.



❏ Please reschedule my appointment. Once USCIS receives your request, you will be sent a new appointment notice. Make a copy of this notice for your records, then mail the original with your request to BPU, Alexandria ASC, Suite 100, 8850 Richmond Hwy, Alexandria, VA 22309-1586


If you have any questions regarding this notice, please call 1-800-375-5283.



Looking around VJ, biometrics appointments are typically scheduled within three weeks of N-400 application. If the appointment is before your return, there is no harm in your husband calling on your behalf too. They'll just say no if it's not possible.  The important thing though is that your husband receives the biometrics appt letter and sends it back for rescheduling.
