  1. ROC joint filing-- even if the recent letters do not state the spouse has to attend, people have reported being asked about it. My letter (earlier this year, for April interview) did state to bring my spouse, so I am guessing the interviewers may not be aware yet that recent letters do not state the need to bring their spouse. Given how long most people have been waiting, I really think it is a good idea to bring your spouse. What is the worst that can happen other than the spouse having to sit and wait for nothing?
  2. I have seen several people saying recently that their interview letter did not state that the spouse has to attend. Yesterday, someone with that letter went for the interview but apparently was asked why the spouse was not in attendance. I won't chance it even if the letter doesn't state it. Better to bring your spouse and not be asked to have him or her in the interview room than to have no spouse there.
  3. I don't think most people update their i751 interview experience (presumably because i751 interviews are comparatively rare).

  6. Honestly, the interview is just a formality, most likely due to changes in rules with the last administration. Don't need to overthink it. Some people sent hundreds of pages of evidence and still got RFE and interview. Quantity over quality, in my opinion. I won't call MSC a difficult centre, although it certainly isn't as fast as some other centres as I believe MSC is the one that processes cases requiring interviews. Just sit tight and wait, and in the meantime, keep collecting new evidence to prove your bonafide marriage.
  7. It is very frustrating. I hope you get this resolved soon!
  8. 1) USCIS is notorious for making mistakes like that. 2) You cannot go to your biometrics appointment without the letter. They will not even let you in (I saw someone being turned away when I went for mine). 3) Online case status will never show that biometrics is scheduled. They will update after fingerprints are taken, but otherwise, the only way to know is to receive the letter, which of course, they screwed up. 4) Contact the USCIS Ombudsman office and your congressman for help. I should probably add that if you know which centre your biometrics is scheduled at, you could call and see if they have records of your scheduled time and date and if they will let you in if you can prove your identity. Chances are low though.
  9. This is a glitch that I have read about in at least a couple of other cases. They just ignored it.
  10. I have seen a couple of cases in recent weeks that have the same letter. I guess if the instructions didn't state to bring her then you don't have to, but if you can, then it's better. Let us know if they only ask you to go into the room for interview!
  11. If your case is straightforward then just do it yourself. From my i130 to my i751, I did everything myself. Already received my 10-year GC in hand. If you have questions, VJ members are more than happy to chime in to help you out!
  12. Since it is joint-filing, then your wife has to be with you. The interview letter will state so as well.
  13. Give it a couple of days. There should be another update that the post office picked it up. Then you will get the tracking number!
  14. If you are signed up to receive email updates, for some reason, the tracking number does not appear in the email. If you go to USCIS website and key in your case number, the tracking number should appear there.
