ASC Appointment...

Asked over 2 years ago - Oklahoma City, OK

I just received an ASC Appointment Notice. My spouse is the US petitioner and I am the beneficiary.
Does my spouse need to attend the ASC appointment with me, or is it alright if I go by myself? The appointment is scheduled for two weeks from today. Do I need to wait for the day scheduled on the notice, or may I go now? Thank you.

    Answered . As you correctly understand, you are a Beneficiary of the federal submission by your spouse who is the Petitioner in your case for immigration benefits (your AOS).
