OK, so.. we had an RFE back in January, the only thing they asked for was a copy of our original marriage certificate, which we provided and they received Feb 18th, and today I checked on My USCIS and it says an interview has been scheduled and we'll receive info in mail? The only thing I can find is maybe they suspect fraud? (It's not- we've been together two and a half years, have visited together 7 times in two years and have a daughter together), I guess I'll find out for sure whenever we get something in the mail. Just seems a little weird to me, it's I-130, I'm the USC and he's still overseas in UK.


Anyone with any experience with this? Our PD was 7-3-2019 and our status never changed to approved/no NOA2 or ever anything from NVC. Happy our status has finally changed (nothing had changed from March 16), but a bit uneasy if they're suspecting fraud 😕 😕

I would give USCIS a call. My first instinct is, it may be a glitch or a mistake on the website. Either way it certainly wouldn't yet be a visa interview for your spouse since you haven't gone through NVC yet. I wouldn't be too worried about suspect of fraud, just give them a call once the weekend is over to see what's up with it. Make sure you've got enough time to wait on hold for an hour or so though.

Our CR1 Journey:

  • Sep 19 2019: I130 NOA2 (Approved - 217 days from NOA1)

  • Dec 18 2019: Requested doc submitted
  • Feb 19 2020: Documentarily Qualified (9 weeks from 2nd submission, 14 weeks from first submission)

I did call USCIS, she said that my interview wasn't scheduled yet but the officer had put in a request for there to be an interview and once it was scheduled I'd get something in the mail. I double checked that it would be for me, the petitioner, before the i-130 was approved and she said that was correct. That the officer may have additional questions or want some clarifications on things prior to the i-130 being approved 😕
