Getting nervous...interview on Thursday!

20 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am starting to get nervous now because our interview is on Thursday, May 11th, but my biometrics were just done on 04/05/06, so I hope that it was enough time to get everything approved and that I don't have to wait on a pending name check or anything?!

Well, your AOS was just filed in March.

I hope you are 'completely' done on the 11th, but I would prepare myself for a 'partial approval'. I hope not for your sake, but look at our timeline below.

Relax - its not that hard. Just review the I485 (especially all those strange questions) the day before and you will be fine. (And refresh your memory for all the names of relatives (brothers, sisters, parents etc,); the date of birth etc.; dates of entry, marriage and your visits to meet each other.

We had our biometrics done the same day as the interview and it took about 8 weeks to get the approval - so don't worry too much about that either. Good Luck
