Marriage Based K1 Greencard Interview - Told to go get an interpreter and would be rescheduled, but refused to be given any paperwork.

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We came in for our interview, everything started great, we handed over all documents and answered all the questions.

 

The interviewer then asked my wife when was her first admittance into the united states, but my wife didn't hear the first word and asked "What?", the interviewer promptly closed her big book of documents said sorry you need to re-schedule and she needs to get an interpreter, we can't proceed until she can understand me. Seemed a little odd to not even repeat the question or give her a chance to answer it.

 

That being said I asked for some kind of paperwork so I can have a record but she said there isn't any paperwork that she can give in this situation and just wait for a notice in the mail. She also said for the next interview we don't need to bring any supporting documents just simply show up with an interpreter (so I assume we fulfilled the requirements to proving a bona fide relationship). She wouldn't tell me when it would be re-scheduled for either, not even an estimate of how long until the next appointments are available. 

 

USCIS Case Status online tool shows no changes since a month ago when the first interview was scheduled. 

 

Anyone have any similar experiences and can tell me what to expect next and exactly what they think happened?

You have absolutely no information about you at all, where your at, what field office etc. Does your wife understand and speak English?

If you're in doubt, call customer service and ask for a Tier 2.

They're immigration officers and have access to your file. You can express your concerns and ask about your current status. 

For the time being, you're back into the queue again to get a new interview.

We were at the Minneapolis, MN USCIS office.

If you and your wife are as not-forthcoming with the information to VJ folks here, as you seem to have been with USCIS IO, it is evident why your interview was cut short. Getting information from you is akin to pulling teeth. Your timeline is vacant, :time:Help us try to help you. :thumbs:


Completed: K1/K2 (271 days) - AOS/EAD/AP (134 days) - ROC (279 days)

Sounds pretty simple.  Get a qualified interpreter all lined up and wait for the second interview to be scheduled.  Go to the second interview with the interpreter and hope all goes well.
