Asked in Immigration Law

Q: Hello. How can I reschedule my green card interview through marriage to an American citizen from US to Ankara, Turkey?

I am from Turkey. I am married to an American citizen, and up until 6 months ago, we were living in Atlanta, GA. We applied for a green card for me. Meanwhile I got pregnant. When 7 months pregnant, I was diagnosed with severe breast cancer. My husband and I immediately came to Turkey for our baby's birth and for my chemo treatment on the 25th of Dec, 2021. Then we got notice of a green card interview scheduled on Feb 4th in Atlanta. Due to both chemotherapy and a newborn baby, we couldn't go to Atlanta. We asked USCIS to reschedule our interview to Ankara, Turkey, by explaining our situation, but they again scheduled it to Atlanta on the 26th of July. My treatment might take another 6 months. What do we need to do to have the interview sheduled in Ankara, TR? If we can't, is it a problem to keep resheduling? Also would staying outside of the US with advance parole over 1 year create a problem when trying to re-enter the US?
