Mckinney, TX asked in Immigration Law for Washington

Q: Change in immigrant visa interview schedule or re-schedule for both the parents on same date and time?

I have filed green card petitions for both of my parents, so far I have received appointment details for my mother from National Visa Center. There is one month difference between approvals for my mother and father, we have yet to recieve approval for my father. I just wanted to check if I can have the interviews scheduled for both the parents at same date and time? or Is it possible to have my mother's interview scheduled along with my father's appointment(once his application is approved)? Thanks

A: Each embassy or consulate has its own procedures for changing an interview for an appointment. It should be listed on their web page. If it is not, then you can contact the embassy or consulate directly. You indicated that you have not yet received the approval for your father. If this is true, then it might be best to proceed with your mother's interview as there is no guarantee when your father's approval notice will come and when his interview will be scheduled.

You will not be able to ask to have your father's interview scheduled together with your mother before he receives an approval notice. Best of luck!

A: Yes. They can be scheduled at the same time. It might just happen as a matter of course, but you can also contact the consulate or embassy.
