For many types of immigration processes, USCIS requires an interview in person with an officer. Interviews are most commonly scheduled for residency applications (I-485), family petitions (I-130), removal of conditions (I-751), and citizenship/naturalization applications (N-400).

The USCIS office we most commonly accompany clients to is the Kendall Field Office. The USCIS Kendall Field Office is located at 14675 SW 120th Street, Miami, FL 33186. We also regularly accompany clients to the Miami Field Office, the Hialeah Field Office, the Oakland Park Field Office, and the West Palm Beach Field Office. When your case is set for an interview, a notice will come in the mail letting you know exactly what date and time you should be at USCIS. Even though the field offices are open from 7am-3:30pm, most interviews are set between 7am-1pm. The officers will not see you at any time other than your scheduled time and you will have to wait to check-in if you arrive more than 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time.

Our office always recommends having an attorney accompany you to your interview. You have the right to have an attorney present, even if you didn’t hire an attorney to file your forms from the beginning. There are many advantages to bringing an attorney with you. First, the officers are less likely to be hostile. If the officer asks a question the applicant doesn’t understand because it is immigration “lingo,” the attorney is there to step in and make sure your answers are legally correct. Second, if something goes wrong in the process or interview, the attorney can help explain on your behalf or can request to speak to a supervisor, if needed. Third, if the case is denied and/or appealed, having an attorney at your interview allows for a third party confirmation of what happened and how the interview was conducted. Fourth, the attorney should and will prepare you ahead of time for the tough questions that may come up in your particular case (such as explaining time spent unlawfully, multiple marriages/divorces, or an marriage right after an entry into the US as a tourist). This preparation can be invaluable to the success of your case.

Here are some IMPORTANT TIPS to keep in mind for your USCIS Interview in Kendall, or any other field office.
