There was no stokes. The officer called us in, said he had reviewed our case throughly and that we had a strong case, then he asked us what happened in the first interview? We told him the officer told us we got everything right but that he had a problem with our age difference.

He said, we USCIS are a government agency and do not discriminate. Then he asked for my passport, EAD and approved. All in less than 5 minutes...

I spent $550 for attorney presence and $250 to be prepared for the stokes... but I still don't regret it.

You shouldnt regret it, I'm sure seeing your lawyer right next to you made an impression on the IO. Nobody wants to get sued based on discrimination don't you think??

Thanks everybody. I know a lot of folks here do everything by themselves. But I have to say that having a lawyer made my case possible. I believe that if we had brought him to the first interview, they would have approved us right there.

My lawyer also managed to get USCIS to schedule our 2nd interview. After the first interview we waited 3 months and had the lawyer sent a letter to the supervisor in Newark and in 2-3 weeks we received the 2nd interview.
