I'm totally shocked

I had my first i-485 marriage interview on September 20. The interview went well and we were approved on the spot. IO stamped my application, made me sign and told us it would take 4 weeks for the card to be delivered.

After 4 weeks of nothing, I made an infopass appointment and the guy behind the counter informed us that our case was scheduled for a second interview. Me and my wife were so surprised, we told him that the officer already approved, how come do we have to go back to be interviewed again? He said maybe the IO forgot to ask us something at the first interview and told us to calm down.

3 days ago we received the letter from USCIS about the 2nd interview on January 20 and which "will be videotaped". It was addressed to both me and my wife. I really appreciate if anyone who has been in this "weird" situation can help us out.

Sounds like a Stokes Interview- you will be separated and asked the same questions, to see if you have a bonafide relationship. Some will be very detailed, could be anything from the color of your toothbrushes over what you had for dinner last night to, yes, intimate questions about your sex life.

As to why it happened after a promised approval, I am unsure; it could be the officer's supervisor looked at the case and didn't like something, it could be that after you left, the officer remembered a weird answer you gave, or even that a angry family member or friend called in with information. Do you have any red flags in your case, such as a long overstay, big age difference or previous marriage to a USC? What visa did you come in on?

Just treat it like the first interview. No need to panic, just answer everything honestly and it will be fine.

I will be honest, i am sorry you have to go through this but this whole process to me now is more like a joke and circus. Stupid and waste of time. Especially, after hearing what you been through and were told your approved and should be fine.

Sorry, but nothing about this process is a "joke" or a "circus". We are applying for the opportunity to live in the USA. This is not a right, it is a privilege. USCIS have a duty to ensure that all applicants meet the necessary requirements and it is up to us to prove beyond on all doubt that we do!

How is an attempt at clarification a joke or a circus?

With opportunities to those who wish to live and work here permanently, the least the US asks is an applicant's cooperation.
