I can fly down for the interview however the place of interview is not my primary residence in divorce case. And the divorce is mucked up with the other side challenging the jurisdiction. Does AOS with approved VAWA require the interview location to be primary address as mentioned in divorce case?
The interview is conducted in the place where the beneficiary physically resides. You need to do an AR-11 and probably try to contact the office where the interview is presently scheduled. Otherwise, if you are no longer living in the jurisdiction of the office covering your old address, you may end up travelling there just to have the officer potentially refuse to conduct the interview (I have witnessed this before) and send it to be rescheduled at the appropriate office. You can always file an AR-11 change of address online, and set up an INFOPASS appt. at the office covering your CURRENT residence. If there is an attorney who handled the filing of the 485, they should be assisting with this.
William M. Cavanaugh Law Office of William M. Cavanaugh www.wmc-law.com (561) 283-2196 This posting does not create an attorney-client relationship and the answer is general in nature. You should contact an experienced Immigration attorney with the specific facts of your case.
No immigration interviews are conducted where they are. It has nothing to do with your state court action. However you must file a change of address when you move permanently to another location.
You can do an address change now, but it won't help you much: the interviewing officer, as soon as learns you are no longer living at your old address will refuse to conduct the interview and want to transfer your case to the CIS office having jurisdiction over the place you live at now. Can take a long time, and file can be "lost" or "misplaced" in the process. Better have an attorney assist.
