My husband and I have just received our interview date regarding the final process to get his Green Card. On the paper it provides a laundry list of things that need to be brought to the interview, some that were included in the original packet when we submitted his paperwork. My question is do I / Should I still bring in everything regardless if I submitted it or not. My other question is - has anyone had a co sponsor and does that person need to come also? My last concern is at the time of our interview I will be a full 9 months pregnant, and we are concerned the baby may be coming early around that time... Should we try to reschedule our interview date or keep it? Has anyone had any of these circumstances? Any help/ suggestion is appreciated!

Take everything they instruct you to take........the consulate has approval of all documents. Co-sponsors don't have to be there.  I would keep the interview.

I agree with @missileman, take everything they ask for.  Back when my wife had her AOS interview, we took copies of her complete K1 and AOS packages just in case any documents were misplaced by USCIS handling.  As to rescheduling the interview, I would wait until it is closer and hopefully all will fall into place.

 

Good Luck!

Agree with others. We took every scrap of paper that we had accumulated/received associated with our Immigration journey thus far. They asked me for a document that I know that I had sent in with the initial K1 petition, saying that they never received it. Really? I would have likely gotten an RFE then if I didn't supply it with the petition. Anyway, I had a copy of the document, saved us from a possible RFE

 

Make the interview appointment interview if you can. Trying to reschedule with scheduling minions in Alexandria, VA can be vexing. It is uncanny how inconvenient the timing of the appointment can be, but just get it done, if you can, under present circumstances.

 

Good luck on your immigration journey, and Happy Holidays !!
