My current visa is F -1, but I was on J -1 visa when I first came to the U.S. My husband is a USC, and I filed I-485 this June. However, after I finished figure print, I noticed that I did not have J-1 waiver. I applied J-1 waiver as soon as I noticed that. Yet, the whole process is supposed to be 2 to 4 months, which means the earliest time that I can get the waiver is early October. Last week, I got the interview notice, and it’s scheduled on 09/09.
Now my questions are:
Should I postpone my interview? Or is there any possibility that the immigration officer will let me interview on the original scheduled date anyway, and on hold my decision until they received my J -1 waiver.
Thank you very much for your kind help!Thank you for all your advice! There is one section in the form 485 asking if you've ever had a J-1 visa before, and my husband checked “NO” on that part for me. When I double checked the forms I didn't pay attention to that part either. We don’t meant to cheat, but will the immigration officer consider that a big fraud or something? Will they deny my application based on that? I also worried if that will gives me a bad record of cheating. My husband and I got married last year. We've been together for more than 4 years, and we surely married for true love. We DIY the whole application based on the tips posted on internet, but we didn't expect my past visa experience makes the whole process such complicated.
