Another appointment date after AOS interview?!!

My interview was on November 13, 2008. Yeah, more than a month ago. We were only asked yes or no and basic questions. Officer Gallagher took my I-94 at the start of the interview and asked for copies of our joint assets (which unfortunately, we only had 2) :(

He only told us that he needed to go through our paperwork thoroughly and it would all be in writing from then on. Yesterday, we received an appointment letter stating: "Please come to the shown below at the time and place in connection with an official matter." The letter says to bring passport, D.L. and all documentation relating to my case. Bring all originals and blah blah blah....

My husband and I are clueless. We don't know what's going on. So I am starting this thread to ask for any input from you guys. If there's anyone who has gone through this, your response will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much. Merry Christmas!

Hey you guys,sorry you have to go through 2nd inteview. I have not gone though this but from what I have heard, 2nd interviews are scheduled if couple doesn't have enough evidence of their relationship during the first interview. Normally 2nd interview is conducted individualy (they question you in a separte rooms and then compare answers).Even this might not be your case, just be prepared for that, and they do ask weird questions sometimes, such as "What kind of lock your bathroom door has, is it push button or turn?"

So it really is not anything to worry about, as long as you are prepared and confident. Hopefully someone who has been in a same situation will give you more info.

Good luck

You start me make me worried now. I went to the interview 12/11/2008. The officer told me a similar thing that everything looks good, and the rest is just going through all the paperwork. We're going to know the result by mail or if they need more evidence they would ask from us....

Then we have gotten 3 touches since then.. Both I and my husband are not at our place in Chicago after the interview. We're wondering about the case esp we will not be able to check our mails till we get back home after a new year.

I am crossing my fingers and hope everything goes well. Please update with us after this appointment.

01/2003: Came to US(F1 visa)

02/2006: Started dating with my USC husband in CA.

06/2006: He moved to IL. I was on OPT (F1 at that time)

10/2006: I relocated to IL, and moved in with my husband.

09/2007: OPT ended. I went out of the US.

10/2007: I came back to the US on H1B.

01/2008: We got married.

02/07/2008: We filed I130/I485 package to USCIS

Ok so we both show up, will be asked questions separately, and then they compare our answers. Would there be any other reason/s why we got another appointment? As far as I know, our case is simple. We went through the visa process smoothly.

At this point, can we still gather more joint assets and give it to them at our appointment? Please if there are couples out there who went through the same thing, we need your help. Thanks.

People say here in VJ that this second interview is called "Stokes Interview". Do a search on VJ and try to read all about it.

Ok so we both show up, will be asked questions separately, and then they compare our answers. Would there be any other reason/s why we got another appointment? As far as I know, our case is simple. We went through the visa process smoothly.

At this point, can we still gather more joint assets and give it to them at our appointment? Please if there are couples out there who went through the same thing, we need your help. Thanks.

After reading about "Stokes Interview," I am relieved that we could be questioned separately and/or videotaped or will be asked a few more questions togerther. Also, the reason for appointment is: Form I-485 Adjustment of Status. Does this mean it is only about the FORM, or is it about the entire application?
