After you have completed the steps on the Immigrant Visa Process on usvisas.state.gov, including paying the necessary fees and submitting the required immigrant visa application form (DS-260), Affidavit of Support, and supporting documents to the National Visa Center (NVC), they will review your file for completeness. Once your case becomes qualified for an interview, NVC will work with us to schedule an interview appointment for you.
You can learn more about the interview process on usvisas.state.gov.

Who has to come for the interview? Do I need to bring all my children?
All people who will be receiving an immigration benefit must be in attendance for their interview.
I am the petitioner and I want to come for the interview with the beneficiary?
Petitioners are not required to come for the interview. In some cases the officer may ask for the petitioner to be present, but petitioners are not required to be present at the time of the interview. For minors and for people with disabilities, we allow one family member to accompany the beneficiary.
