Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

I had my interview on aug 29 2017, we waited a lot. Was set for 2:25 they call us arount 3:30, she just ask the questions she had in a paper, how we meet and about our living room, after she finish she gave us a paper saying "hold for review" and told me : dont freak out, i have to finish your file, you will get the letter or carf my mail. This was 45 days ago and still nothing .

Manila, Philippines Review #22707 on October 20, 2017:

Review Topic: K1 Visa

Putting together of our documents for the interview was a tedious work because 1: we had been talking for a long time (10+ years) and he visited for 3 times - meaning there are soooo many supporting documents to put together; 2: the affidavit of support form was in transition during that time. Just to be sure, he filled out both of the forms. I can say we over prepared because the consul didn't ask for any documents I could barely carry. There were very basic questions: my name, his name, how our ages, and what his hobby is. One good thing about over preparation, I believe, is that it boosts confidence for sure.

Norfolk VA Review #22705 on October 19, 2017:

Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

We arrived about 15 mins before our 11am appt in Norfolk, VA. They called us back to a private room about 11:15. She had us raise our right hands and swear in. The first thing she asked is if we had any evidence to present to support our marriage. I brought joint phone bill, rental lease with both our names, joint car insurance, my life insurance with him listed as the beneficiary. She didn't even glance at them or blink an eye. She was just staring at us saying "uh huh... ok.. what else" (talk about intimidating) then she asked for pictures to add to our file and all i had was our wedding album and a screenshot of our photographers blog. So she seemed kind of annoyed and asked to look through our album. Then she started asking about the timeline of our entire relationship and the dates of life events like cancer and the death of his dad.. (?) She continued looking through our album and said she rarely sees actual weddings rather than a courthouse style wedding. She started to tear up and expressed how much love she sees between us and how blessed we are by God. She went from intimidatingly tough to soft and sweet and said she recommends us for approval and that she hopes to find a love like ours someday. We had the online status change by the time we walked out to the car!!! We were with her about 20 minutes!

I was concerned about the health packet because we never sent or filled out any health paperwork or vaccine papers with his AOS because they took it at his port of entry and we had no copies of anything! I figured we would get an RFE to have his health redone since it's been over a year since the one for k-1 but all she said was "his health packet was submitted for his k-1 correct?" And we said yes and she said great!

I think that's about all the details I can remember! Glad to be done for 2 years!
