Had AOS interview for my wife today in Los Angeles.

We got there at 6, they opened at 7, but the interview was at 8:45. There was a line outside and they let us in at around 7:20. At 7:40, my wife's name was called. We were the second person called.

I went with my wife, our 6-month daughter, and my sister (as interpreter). Officer was very, very serious and asked us to swear to tell the truth. Asked my sister to swear to interpret correctly.

First thing he did was take off the I-94 and sign the Fiance Visa on the passport. As soon as I saw him take the I-94, figured we'd be alright (right?).

Some of the questions were:

Asked where our passports were. I was surprised he asked for my passport, I didn't make a copy. He also asked for my sister's passport

How did I meet my wife?

Had my wife received any federal help like welfare? (she said no).

How many children I had with her(I said just one). If I had more children (no.)

If she had more children? (she said no).

He asked for our daughter's birth certificate.

Where our medical exam was. (only needed vaccination supplement).

Where my taxes were. I gave him 2008 & 2007.

He asked my wife if she had ever been arrested, if she had ever committed a crime.

He asked what other documents we had. Gave him cell phone bill with both phones for us. Our apartment lease.

Asked if my wife and daughter had health insurance, if we had copies of her health insurance cards.

Asked me where I worked. If my wife still worked as a dentist.

Asked what other documents we had like photos. Took out a photo album we had. He looked through it and looked at both of us to make sure it was us.

He then left to make copies of my passport, my sister's ID, and some of the photos in the photo album.

He put it all in the packet and said he had reviewed all that was necessary and that we would receive a decision within 45 days. That was it. by 8 a.m., 45 minutes before the interview date, we were out of the building.

Hopefully this means we have been approved. Now more waiting.... :angry:

Hope this helps those preparing for their interviews. And hope this is good news for us too.

We've been approved! Now we just have to wait for the card to arrive! I'm just glad we weren't left in the dark too long as to the status of the case.

I would like to thank everyone here at VJ for their help. These threads are most helpful and allowed us to have everything go smoothly at the interview. Now I don't need to think about USCIS for another 2 years.

Thank you all so so much and good luck to all those in process,

Felipe
