Spouse awaiting N-400 interview

So I'm married to a LPR, came to the us on B2 visa and got married before my stay was expired. I filed my i130 after my visit was over and it got approved in January 2020. He filed his n-400 before the petition got approved, did biometrics and awaiting interview. The approval letter states <<that the beneficiary is in the US and wish to adjust status, however I may not be eligible to file an AOS.>>It also says that its not a final determination on eligibility to adjust and that I am not precluded from applying. The case was sent to NVC based on what was stated in the notice. We are now awaiting on his interview and the decision of the interview but was recently told that there was a request for an interview which we are yet to receive that notice. Based on the time given when he was supposed to finalize the naturalization process (last Sept to Oct), I wrote to them thru his online account asking for an update and was told that within 60 days of the response, he will be sent an interview notice... We were informed of the interview because his GC expires next month and because he applied more than 6m of his GC expiring, he is able to get an appt for infopass until he completes the naturalization process, so the IO told us on phone (he called to schedule the infopass appt, but because he is more than a month away of his GC expiring, he wasnt able to get the appt yet until around the end of this month) that the interview was requested 5 days ago. The attorney I had used told me earlier in January that I needed to put in the rest of my doc because after a year has passed, my case can be on the back burner🤦‍♀️. I had won a immigration consultation in Dec and the consultant said I need to put the AOS in. I'm scared because i recently put in my docs, with the hope that he will get the interview notice so that my case can go smoothly after his interview. (Currently in the lockbox facility until Tuesday). I'm just really confused

Well sounds like you have overstayed for some time.

 

Your Spouse needs to have Naturalised before you adjustment interview.

Isn't there a chance of the Lockbox rejecting the filing since proof of US citizenship and an unexpired I-94 weren't included? OP currently faces adjustment bars: https://www.uscis.gov/policy-manual/volume-7-part-b-chapter-4

I thought they got passed that point like that other recent thread but it is confusing and you may well be correct

Should have waited for him to naturalize. 

We had a similar thread here just last week. 


Immigration journey is not: fast, for the faint at heart, easy, cheap, for the impatient nor right away. If more than 50% of this applies to you, best get off the bus.

Ohhh I read that post first when I just got the email earlier today, I didn't check the date as to when it was submitted. I'm not in any better position than that person, it's because of COVID why my spouse hasn't gotten naturalized yet. I just didn't want the case to be forgotten, as I was eagerly awaiting his naturalization but I guess I panicked when both consultants told me I need to put the docs in.. I sincerely hope if I am to get my SSN and EAD, by the time of the interview he will be naturalized.

He filed the N-400 before January 2020? So in 2019? There are very few of us 2019 N-400 filers left waiting so it shouldn’t be too much longer now. Which office will he be interviewing at for his citizenship?

No, he filed jan 12, 2020 online. His estimated completion time was sept/Oct 2020. No activity was on the account since his biometrics so we messaged to find out what was going on. On Jan 22, I think we got a response from them saying that within 60 days of the notice,  he will get a notice for interview. Also in the email, they said it was assigned to a Sacramento Office. No update on his account,  idky

Actually, you are in a little better position than the other poster since your spouse has already filed for naturalization.  As the other thread showed, when it came time for that OP's AOS interview, the first question was is their spouse a USC yet.  Hopefully your spouse will have their interview soon and become a USC soon after so you can finalize your status.

 

Good Luck!
