That seems strange.

Did they say what they were looking for? What questions they were asking?

Very odd indeed. I'd like some follow-up on this. Is this common???

Wow, very strange. I have never heard of them doing that at this stage of the process. Please let us know when you receive your card - I am sure your mother gave a positive report!

yeah it was weird.. i wasnt home so i didn't see or talk to them at all.. i just dont know if they will come back after that because me and my husband work almost everyday and were never home. but my mom said that they didnt ask to come inside and look at the house at all, they just asked if me and my husband were home and asked my mom who she is.. thats all. im starting to worry now coz dont they usually visit those couples that they think are fake?

I wouldn't worry too much. Yes, it is unusual, but it wouldn't surprise me if it were also random. It also could be something that USCIS is attempting to do to improve its utilization of resources. Did your mother describe what they were wearing (as in uniforms)? Who exactly did they say they were? As in Agency.

hmm she said the girl was wearing a skirt and the guys were wearing normal clothes.. im thinking that maybe they arent aware that im approved already or maybe its a different department..i dont know i dont want to worry that they may cancel my GC.

Hi Ninzie,

Wow, this sure is an unusual situation, indeed! Are you sure they were actually USCIS officials, and not some other officials from other government agencies? Are you sure it's not some con-people pretending to be USCIS officials when they are not? Did they show any offical ID proving that they are actually who they say the are? Is this some sort of "New Year's Joke" or something? I wonder why they would make "house calls" to applicants now? Has anybody else had this experience? Oh the mysteries of the USCIS...

On the other hand, I think it might not be such a bad idea that they visit applicants' houses. After all, we paid them the money to do the job, so why not make them work for it by "letting them come to us, instead of we going to them"? That would definitely save a trip to the "local" field office for an interview (especially to those whose local offices are farther away), as they can see by first-hand

in-person experience, if the case is a fraud or not. And who knows, maybe with "house calls" they can actually approve cases faster....

Lol..oh it would definitely be quite funny if the USCIS came to my house (lol..that is if they can find it in "the middle of nowhere in a small rural town, amongst the cows and the deer")!

Anyways, congratulations on your recent approval. And hopefully by them visiting you, it shouldn't cause any more problems either, as weird as this situation may be....

Good luck on the rest of your immigration journey too!
