I'm filing an adjustment of status for my husband who's from Belgium. Does he need to go back to Belgium for the interview?

Asked over 1 year ago - Williamsburg, IA

My husband came here four years ago with a visa waiver. He came here legally but was supposed to leave after three months. Now that we are married we filed an adjustment of status. Will he need to return to Belgium for the immigration interview?

    Answered . if he goes outside of the country, he will trigger the 10 year bar. For adjustment of status, if all goes well, it is done inside the US.

    Answered . I assume you are an USC. Yes he can seek AOS here in the USA. Keep in mind, If the government sends him to court for whatever reason, he will have hard time defending his removal.
