Topic: Adding spouse to pending application.

Those of you who have their GC approved and spouse alone has interview pending...

Are you (as the primary) getting an updated employment verification letter for your dependent spouse's interview?

Topic: Adding spouse to pending application.

Hello all.
I saw in other interview posts about form g-325a. What is that? I don't recall seeing that when dependent spouse 485 was filed recently?

Edit: Ok I see I not need if recently updated 485 was used.

Hi BPSSMG,
One more question, was you spouse asked details about *your* employment, your job description etc? I assume the answer is no, it was about her current job only (even though strictly speaking her job has nothing to do with her dependent 485)

Topic: Adding spouse to pending application.

Hello BPSSMG,
Thanks for your details!

So to confirm,
1.even though you had approved GC and interview was only for your dependent spouse officer allowed you too in the interview? That's good to know.

2. When you say questions asked were "on work experience, description, last entry, kind of visas, how many entries entries, employment status etc...." - those were for your spouse? (and not your work, status etc). Was your spouse was working and in her own status?

3. If all those questions were directed to your spouse and she didn't remember some detail, were you allowed to answer it?

For question on how many entries, kinds of visas -- Did he ask to show proof? My wifre has been here for about 6 years, she was on H4 then F1 then now H1. She has all those approvals papers to prove continuity of status...

Thanks Much!

I want to go.
Why wouldn't you if they allow? In some ways you dependent 485 is tied to your marriage. And you spouse notice does state that.

Topic: Adding spouse to pending application.

When your attorney says 'prepare spouse for eb/140 questions' - do you mean to say that dependent spouse should be aware of all the details of the primary applicant like job description etc ? ( even thought primary has got his GC approved recently). My wife has her interview last week Jan. I hope to be able to go along citing I am the primary.

I assume you are a 2007 eb3i filer who got GC recent and have spouse 485 applied?

Topic: Adding spouse to pending application.

I lost track of what the confusion is :).
The interview notice for EB spouse (case where EB primary has already been greened 4 to 5 months ago) has wrong priority date. It simply states their spouses 485 recv. date under priority date. That's a side effect of NBC using family based 'interview notice' format. As my lawyer told me, the forms have not yet been updated to exactly fit EB dependent interview cases. If you see, it will mention I-824 (instead of I-134 which applies to EB). Long story short, EB spouse inherits the PD of the primary so long as the marriage was *before* primary's 485 approval. (Dependent spouse's 485 can very well be filed after the primary's GC approval. There is no mandate that it must be receipted before primary's 485 approval)

My attorney said if the officer allows you go along. If not wait in the waiting area.

As long as you were married before your 485 approval you are fine. Your spouse will file EB based 485. Don't confuse with f2a etc.

Correct. It's a known fact. But these interview notices I see the PD is being put as the RD. it's just that they haven't streamlined these interview notices yet

No, mine got approved as my PD got current in Sept'17. Wife 485 was received by uscis mid September.

As long as the marriage was before primary's 485 approval, derivative's 485 gets the same PD. Reference item#6 on the policy manual here https://www.uscis.gov/policymanual/HTML/PolicyMa...

Thanks. Yes my wife interview notice does have that a line in bold too. So hopefully they would want me (principal) in the interview even though my GC was approved 4 months ago.

Topic: AOS Interview experience for dependent spouse ONLY?

Hello,
Anyone here who got their GC in the July-Sept time without interview but filed their spouse I-485 recently (as their date got current)?

I had filed my 485 in 2007, got married in 2010. I filed my wife's 485 recently in Sept when my PD finally got current. Around the same time I got my GC (without interview).

Now my wife has got an interview notice. The interview is technically her, but I am hoping I'll be allowed to attend since (as my wife) she's the derivative applicant.

Anyone have feed back in a similar case?

Yes, my wife got had her fingerprint end of Oct. Last week we got her interview notice for last week of Jan.

My GC is approved 4 months ago, I don't have much feedback for cases like mine where primary was approved before the 'interview era' and spouse 485 was filed recently and have to go through interview. I hope I'll be allowed in the interview.

Topic: Primary approved, dependent pending

I had a friend who's kid was in the same age range. I think the delay was so that the kid could turn a certain age to take new bio-metrics and issue the 10 yr green card rather than a shorter term. I don't have the exact details but I can find out and post back

Topic: Adding spouse to pending application.

bkrishnan and others,
Did your dependent wife get interview notice yet? Can you please check with you attorney IF you (with approved GC) will be allowed to attend interview with her? Interview notice will be for your wife.

I am in the same boat. My Aug '06 EB3I PD became current in September and I got approval. I filed for my Wife's (married in 2010) I-485 mid September. She's on her own H1b status. Now after 4 mo my wife has got interview notice for late Jan.

Most folks here attend interview as a couple. I am trying to gather interview feedback for cases where primary was approved recently (without interview) and dependent ALONE is pending and has to go for interview (given their 485 was filed recently).

(And as long as one is married before 485 approval, spouse is considered a derivative. That part is clear.)

Topic: September 2017 transfer from TSC to NBC

Hello Anand,
I filed my wife's 485 in September too (I got my GC in Sept). Did your wife (dependent) get interview notice? Do you know if you will be allowed to go with her into the interview?

Most folks here are joint filers going to interview jointly unlike us, hence trying to gather feedback.

Topic: Should I have my lawyer accompany me to the interview?

In my case, the interview is for my wife only (for her dependent 485). I am hoping I can accompany her.

My 485 was approved back in Sept when my date Eb3I got current. At the same time we filed my wife's 485. (I had filed my 485 in 2007 then got married in 2010. Couldn't file my wife's 485 till Sept when my date got finally got current)
