AOS IN PHOENIX, AZ
Posted 02 February 2006 - 11:23 PM
Soon Yi and I had the AOS interview today. Scheduled for 3:15pm, and fools that we are we showed up at 1:45pm. The guards at the front told us being early was no problem, we really did not need to wait as long to come in, we could have come in any time today and complete the interview. Seems this information did not make it to the case officers, because we waited until 3:45pm before being called in for the interview anyway. Oh well, we waited this long, so another two hours was not going to kill us.
The interview was a snap, after being sworn in the case officer went over the Bio info on the I-485 and checked off the names of parents, asking Soon Yi the names of her parents, her date of birth, what our wedding date is, asking our current address and phone number. We turned over lease papers, insurance, utility bills, etc to show cohabitation, and the case officer never asked to see our stack of photos taken over the last year together here in Arizona.
The case officer was friendly, was pleased to see we had everything organized and our document copies collated for quick reference. She asked a few questions about how we met in Korea, how we communicate with each other, i.e: any language barrier, how I was accepted by my Korean in-laws. The whole process was under 15 minutes once we were called into the offices.
Before we left, she stamped Soon Yi's passport with the I-551, and asked if there were any questions, she confirmed our timeliness for filing to lift the LPR conditions and the steps to citizenship. The feeling was much more comfortable than the K-1 interview at the US Embassy in Seoul, ROK.
Now we start the 21 month countdown to apply for lifting the conditions on Son Yi's resident status.
