What to expect at AoS interview?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

The letter for your interview appointment lists the things you need to bring. Also on visajourney you can look up reviews of your local office to see what other people's experiences were like. Go to "Reviews: Embassy/USCIS & POE" (at the top), then select your local office in the drop down menu.

We brought with us our marriage certificate, our wedding album. I brought my EAD with me. Proof that you have accounts together. Or proof that you live in the same house. They didn't look at our pictures. They just asked for our marriage certificate. It was a very quick interview. My wife just mentioned that we have a wedding album if they want to see. That's the only time they looked our pictures. :lol:

Generally, they verify the information on the 485 including all the yes/no questions. We brought joint financial, insurance, and updated tax information with us along with a complete duplicate of our AOS package. We also brought photos, my wife's driver's license, and anything else we thought showed a genuine marriage. The IO only looked at a few things.

The interview lasted about ten minutes, but we were not approved on the spot (this occurs regularly), but we got the impression from the IO that everything was good. My wife received the approval two days later, and her GC in about ten days.

Good Luck!

Quick question about the requirements for the interview.

Do we still need the affidavit of support form i-864 when we already submitted it? Do we need form i-693? We already submitted that too.

If you have a copy of paperwork for AOS you submitted, bring them with you. The officer may or may not ask. We brought ours during our interview just in case but nothing was asked. Also we were surprised that the interviewing officer asked for pictures of us together in the Philippines prior to our marriage . Fortunately I brought our album with pics of me and my then fiancee (now wife) together when I was visiting her in the Phil. He took a couple of these pics . He also asked us how we communicated during our LDR years. We told him that Facebook was our primary communication tool. He had us log in online in front of him and showed him our chats during those years . Yes bring what ever is asked on the letter. Also bring pics and documents from the K1 just to cover your bases. You may never know what the interviewing officer will ask. Good luck!
