- the good news is now United States CIS states that the medical will be valid for two years instead of one year which is great because they’re taking longer than a year at least in Sacramento and also in many other parts of the country to adjudicate a green card application;
- the bad news is that normally it’s easier to just submit the medical examination documents with the green card application but the medical cannot have occurred more than 60 days before you submit the application otherwise United States CIS will consider it invalid
Moving on to a different topic, about the interviews specifically, the interviews here in Sacramento where you go in for a green card interview (but this could be anywhere as well), it’s really important to make sure that if you have an issue either during your immigration interview (or even getting in to the interview), that if you feel like you’re getting an erroneous decision by the person that’s letting you in to the interview (that they’re not letting you in and you have a valid ID), then bring it up and ask for a supervisor because, it’s important that you make sure that you maintain your rights and this is why it’s also important you have an attorney at the interview as well to represent you one so you have another witness there in case they deny a decision. We’ve had a client in this situation coming in for a parole in place interview and they didn’t want to let them in with the valid passport, which is a valid form of ID, and what was brought to their attention is that this is not something that should prevent from entering because, they didn’t want to let the person enter because they said they needed a driver’s license or some kind of United States ID which was incorrect.We’ve had situations where sometimes the officer may state something that never happened or misconstrue what happened and so by having an attorney there, that’s another witness to the actual events that happen and what that actual testimony that occurred and then second if the officer is asking inappropriate questions the attorney can step in and attempt to rectify that situation as well.
