AOS Interview - Approved

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to share our interview experience last October 14, 2009, 1:15 pm.

We arrived at the interview office at exactly 1:15 because we had a hard time looking for a parking space. It took us 5 mins to finish the security check and was able to put my interview appointment in the tray at 120pm. Though we're late, we were called at 145 pm. There were a few couples and families at the waiting area at that time.

Our IO was very nice and friendly, made us feel at ease at the duration of the interview.

We sat down but he asked us to stand again to swear to tell the truth.

We were asked for IDs so we gave my husband's driver's license and I gave our passports as well. He also asked for the AP and EAD cards. He then continued by asking the yes/no questions in the application form. He askedif I have my husband's G325A because he said he didn't have it. I said I don't have a copy and that submitted it during the petition application. He asked again if it's not in my folder (he saw my huge file). I said no, I was planning to print it but I didn't (silly me).

And so we moved on ...

The documents he asked were:

(have copies of the original so they don't have to photocopy it; your IO will appreciate it) :thumbs:

1. marriage certificate - i gave him a copy after showing the original

2. divorce agreement

3. proof of living together - we gave our health insurance copies, sea world membership, phone bills (with just our numbers and explained that it didn't have my name on it), invoices of items ordered by me and my husband online (since we don't have bills with any of my name on it)

4. photos

5. bound scrapbook from our trips prior to getting married (he liked it a lot; he said he hasn't seen something like it before)

Questions he asked:

1. how did we meet

2. when did we first meet

3. how many times we've seen each other before the marriage

4. was it my first marriage and asked my husband the same

5. he also asked what my job was before and where do i plan to work here

6. he also asked my husband where he works

7. asked if we have any children

He then said that he'll check with his supervisor if it'll be ok that my husband didn't have his G325A. He said everything seems ok, though.

After a few minutes, he came back and explained to us about the conditional status and filled out the approval form and asked us to sign. He took the AP and gave me back the EAD because he said it has expiration date on it.

We thanked him and shook his hand afterwards. We were finished at 230pm.

Good luck to those who will have their interview soon. My advice is to make sure you have a copy of everything that you submitted and read all the interview experiences here. It'll help you a lot :)

Finally, it's over (at least for two years) It was a pleasant experience not only because the IO was nice but because we made sure that we have all the necessary documents. And I got all the tips from reading all the interview experiences of everyone here at VJ. So, THANKS A LOT TO ALL THOSE WHO SHARED THEIR EXPERIENCES. It helped me cover all the bases (except for the G325A of my husband hehehe, never read anything here that asked for the G325A during the interview).
