My wife is a US citizen and lives in California and I am currently living in Texas. We want to file for my green card and were wondering if the interview will happen in California or Texas or is it something we can choose?
For some context, we are living in separate states because I have a job in Texas and my wife is currently studying for her nursing license in California, once she gets her license she can have it transferred to Texas and move here with me.
Based on these facts it appears Texas would be the appropriate location and you should use your Texas address for all of the forms. Also note that CIS tries to “prove” every marriage case is fraudulent and when the couple live apart they really sharpen their knives.
Yes, you should use the Texas address on all forms. You should consult with an experienced immigration attorney. Immigration law is a national practice. Any US immigration attorney located anywhere in the US can assist you.
