I am in the USA and my husband was granted asylum in December 2018. He petitioned for me and our kids who are back home. I have done my biometrics and I have an scheduled appointment for interview this December. What questions should I expect and what must I have with me.
We have not received any news regarding the kid’s petition besides the letter of receipt. What does this mean?
This is a paid service. Your should consult with an experienced attorney & call around to see what the "price range" is. Normally for something like that attorneys will charge a fee for 4 to 5 hours of their time.
Normally this is requires a very detailed and precise preparation, because recently dependent family members are being questioned the same, if not more than the principal asylum applicant. Because they are not "principals" it takes longer to prepare family members.

The answer above is only general in nature and cannot be construed as legal advice, given that not enough facts are known. It is your responsibility to retain a lawyer to analyze the facts specific to your particular situation in order to give you specific advice. 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.
I agree with my colleague re: contacting an attorney directly for assistance. A public forum like this is not the appropriate place to provide interview preparation services.
