  • Interview schedule and re-appointment

    Hello all;

    We filed for my greencard (my husband is a green card holder) in September 9, 2019. Biometric was done on October 4. We didn't get EAD until now. Though I got an advance parole because I wanted to visit family.

    What are the chances of an interview being scheduled the next one or two months? The reason, my husband has to travel (it cannot be postponed) and if he gets stuck outside the country we may miss the interview date.

    Is it possible to reschedule the interview if it happens when he is outside the country and cannot attend because of Coronavirus travel restrictions? Or is it never advised?

    Thanking you in advance.

    Yes, it is possible to reschedule the interview, but you are also at the mercy of the USCIS when it comes to picking a date and time. So it could possibly push your interview date back a month or two or three (depending on how full they are) and that's entirely up to your discretion. However; it is easy to reschedule. Simply call the USCIS and ask for a "Tier 2 Officer." Typically they will have to call you back in a few hours but they can help you with so much more than the representatives can.

    Good luck.
