31 Aug USCIS Reschedules Marriage-Based Adjustment of Status Interview for Getson & Schatz, P.C. Client on Emergent Basis and Approves Green Card
Our firm provided legal representation in the process of a United States Citizen sponsoring her husband for a green card. The foreign national held H-1B status and needed to travel outside the US while his adjustment of status application was pending. Under the immigration laws, an individual in H-1B status with a valid H-1B visa may use the H-1B visa to travel in lieu of an Advance Parole Document during the time an adjustment of status application is pending. Our client successfully traveled with his H-1B visa during this time period. When petitioning for a green card through marriage, both spouses must attend an interview at the local United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office with an immigration officer. The US Citizen spouse was pregnant and on the morning of our client’s interview, she went into labor. Our clients called us that they would be unable to attend the interview because of the birth of their child so we immediately called the local USCIS office and were able to reschedule the interview. The interview was rescheduled a month later and the green card application was approved. The parents and their new US Citizen child are all doing well!
