Default Interview at Embassy question

Hi,

I've had my medical and am about to book my interview at the London Embassy, anyone had any recent experience just wondering what I should expect?
Also if I am successful (my wife is american and our support from her family the I864 more than meets all the criteria necessary so I'm feeling positive) do you know if it is possible to delay going if you have been accepted? I know the medical is only valid for 6 months the reason i ask is my uncle is terminally ill and I'm thinking potentially I may want to delay travelling to the US.

So the scenario I want to understand is if the Medical is approved and valid from 14th October through April 14th 2021 can i get another medical completed in May 2021 and travel in June/July?

Why bother? Just travel to the US to activate the visa, then return to the UK on the next flight.

Much easier than messing around with getting a visa reissued!

I agree, don't postpone going to the USA. Go there before the visa expires. You can come back to the UK for a few months if needed after that.

Just wanted to ask, though... you mention your wife's family's I-864 as joint sponsor, but want to make sure your wife has completed her I-864 as well. She is your sponsor even if she doesn't qualify financially.

Just wanted to clarify, once you enter the US to activate the visa, even if you return to the UK on the next flight out, is your tax home from that point on considered the US?
