Q. Is it safe to go to Warsaw for an interview if we have an AOS case going here?
A: You either file an Adjustment of Status or you consular process. Only applicants present in the US are eligible to apply for AOS. Applicants who are abroad process at the consulate. So, if your mom is present in the US and she has filed for AOS, then she will most likely receive her green card in the US.
