Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

The USCIS officer (ISO Campbell) was in a terrible mood even before he met us. He kept saying that he was running 30 minutes late for a meeting and didn't have time to work with the interpreter that we had paid $200+ to be there so the ISO would do his best just to speak directly to my wife. From a technical standpoint, it was fine since my wife's English has improved tremendously in the past few months and she answered with poise every time, only hesitating occasionally because the officer was a bit intimidating.

The interview itself was a breeze. The ISO shusshed me when he asked my wife for her SSN card. I tried to explain that I had all of my wife's paperwork with me and that he'd need to talk with me to get it. All in all, the interview lasted no longer than 15 minutes and he asked very few questions other than a few of the standard ones from the I-485, our birth dates, phone numbers, and address. He spoke mainly to her although he did ask if I'd ever met or spoken with her parents. Towards the end of the interview, he asked if we had any more evidence (not already submitted with the I-485) that we would like to be considered as part of the AOS application. I plopped a 20-page packet of stuff on his desk which included boarding passes for recent trips, train tickets for a trip to visit my parents, bills in both of our names, a 401(k) beneficiary page showing her name, a printout from work showing her as an emergency contact, and a few other pages of documents demonstrating financial co-mingling. He also kept a few photos that I brought with me (they were copies) and he raised his eyebrows in a seemingly good way when viewing a few of them. The ISO was incredibly vague about whether we were approved or not. He didn't mention anything about the ROC process nor did he say whether we were approved or not. He said we'd hear something in 4-6 weeks.

I'd say this guy was your typical caricature of a government employee with a big fat chip on his shoulder. I was very disappointed with my overall experience because there were so many good reviews for the Philly USCIS office on VJ! The important thing here is that I kept my cool throughout the entire experience, was well-prepared with substantiating documents, and my wife projected confidence with every answer she gave.

Review Topic: General Review

Got the one power tripper in the whole place. Was not friendly from the moment she called us. Did not talk at all. Not even a hello or follow me, sit here, please, thank you. Did not look at or talk to my husband once. Did not acknowledge his presence. All other interviewers greeted the folks they called at the door with a smile, a "how are you'. I got the one rotten apple. Horrible experience.

Very friendly, quick, and easy. Asked a few simple bio questions, reviewed some photos and discussed the people in the photos. Was done in about 15 minutes.
