    Answered . I suggest that you consult with an immigration attorney, go over the I-751 Petition that was submitted, and perhaps prepare other documents to present at the interview. It might prove to be well worth the time and money at this time to focus on getting an approval of the I-751. Best of luck.

    Answered . We may both agree on a logical notion that there is no such thing as normalcy as applied to each individual adjustment case with the USCIS. Why?
    Because in the course of adjustment certain procedural variables may arise that invariably may lead to an in person interview for one or another reason, such as additional inquiry, clarification or explanation.
    Also, it is highly advisable to consult with a good immigration counsel prior to the interview.

    Answered . It is not outside the range of possibility to be interviewed on the peititon to remove conditions on residence. The immigration service has the right to interview you. The generally call conditional green card holders in for an interview when they have not received enough documentary evidence that the marriage was entered into in good faith. They also will interview if they have reason to believe that the marraige is fraudlent. You and your spouse might want to consult with competent immigraiton counsel to prepare for this interview.
