U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) invited legal practitioners and customers to participate in a teleconference on Oct. 11, 2017, from 3-4 p.m. (Eastern) to discuss the expanded use of in-person interviews for certain applications and petitions at USCIS field offices.

Effective Oct. 1, USCIS began to phase-in interviews for adjustment of status applications based on employment (Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status), and refugee/asylee relative petitions (Form I-730, Refugee/Asylee Relative Petition) for beneficiaries who are in the U.S. and are petitioning to join a principal applicant who was admitted to the United States as a refugee or granted asylee status in the United States.

The presentation was followed by a question-and-answer session.
