Me and my 2 children are scheduled for AOS interview on January 5. I had their passports renewed at the Consular Office and new ones will be released on January 29. Will it matter if my kids have expired passport at the time of our interview?
No. Will not make any difference whatsoever, as a valid national passport is not a condition precedent to obtaining green card status. Besides not everyone even has a passport when appearing at the AOS interview (just think of the Mexican or Central American who entered "through the woods" years ago without any passport or visa, and is now adjusting status based on INA Section 245(i) or other.. Many of those people don't even know what passports are.. Or think of the asylee who gladly let his national passport expire years ago..)
Kindly be advised that the answer above is only general in nature cannot be construed as legal advice, given that not enough facts are known.

Specific answers will require cognizance of all pertinent facts about your case. Any answers offered on Avvo are of a general nature only, and are not meant to create an attorney-client relationship.
Yes it does. You suppose to have a valid passport for six months. Visa will not be issued until valid passports are obtained.

As long as you have government issued photo-id to show the officer to prove who you all are, whether or not the passport has expired is not a factor. Good luck. I'm curious that just the three of you are required to attend. Just curious.
