Adjustment interview for spouse of overseas military personnel

Today I spoke with Officer Lynn Dennis, head of adjustment interviews with CIS, Memphis. I had sent her a fax involving an adjustment interview for a spouse of active duty U.S. military personnel stationed in Iraq. Because of military orders preventing return the U.S. military spouse cannot return for the interview. Officer Dennis told me that immigrant spouse does not need to bring a substitute family member to the interview. Rather they need to bring the bona fides proofs of the marriage, a copy of order with overseas posting and a recent letter from the commander stating that the spouse is unable to return for the interview. It is the policy at Memphis to accommodate all family members of all U.S. military personnel, National Guard, reserve required to be overseas on active duty. Officer Dennis stated that the policy of Memphis CIS was not binding to other CIS offices.
