For us the interview was very quick.  At most 10 minutes.  The questions were the standard Yes/No questions they ask everyone and then just a few questions to confirm what we filled out on the AOS form was correct.  Spelling of name and birthdate.   The only other thing was one missing test from the medical we had to go have done following the interview to get approved.  The doctor who did it I. Taiwan missed a new requirement so didn't give her one required test.   It was really a non event for the most part.  We got the test done the day of the interview, sent results back in and got an approved notification a few days later.

Usually biometrics take place at a application support center, not the actual field office.

In some cities it's the same office.   I don't know about the one from this post.  At the Detroit office biometrics and interview are done at the same location.

In my city it was the same office, Tampa.

 

Had my AOS interview on Tuesday and it was a smooth, painless process. 

IO asked standard yes/no questions, asked me his parent's first names, asked him my DOB and the date we got married. Asked us how we met and asked who proposed marriage and to tell him about the proposal and those were all the questions he asked about our relationship. My husband and the IO were talking about sports and living up north most of the time. We gave him our supporting documents (joint medical insurance, joint bank account statements, joint car insurance, scans of our credit cards and licenses and joint tax returns. We brought a lot of photos but told us to pick the ones we wanted to give him) and that was it. He told us we were a beautiful couple, he wishes us all the best and that he recommended us for approval. Our interview was at 8.30am and by about 12pm i checked the website and it had been updated that we had been approved and that my card was being produced.

 

It's really nothing to worry about. If you have a bonafide marriage, it's a piece of cake. 

 

Hope all goes well for you :)

I have my interview for my AOS for june 26th,any advices?

alsoi is the interview gonna take place at the same local office you had your biometrics at ?

The Notice of Action for your interview lists the address of the office where your interview will take place. Cross check the address with your biometrics notice to see if it's the same one.

I agree with the above.  The interview can be short and sweet for some,or long and painful for others. Usually they verify the information from the I485 form including the yes/no questions, and then delve into the relationship.  Ours was only about 10 minutes and we received a decision a few days later.  We also took copies of all our previous and current submissions with us just in case something from our package was misplaced.  As to the office, the NOA should specify the location, like Ryan said above, ours was in Detroit which is the same office where they do biometrics.

 

Good Luck!

But for me, for example, I had my biometrics at the Nashville application center and will have my interview at the Memphis field office if Nashville field office doesn't open before that.

Take everything with you they ask in the letter, plus copies. Take all the proof with you that you are living together, co-mingling etc etc. Answers vary from case to case though.
