AOS Interview - Buffalo, NY

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Today was the interview day. Went to the USCIS center in downtown Buffalo about 15 minutes prior to the appointment time. We proceeded to check in and goto the appropriate floor where there was one other person in the room, perhaps on the same business but maybe not. After submitting the appointment letter to the receptionist and waiting for about 3-5 minutes or so, we were called up and sworn into the office.

My wife (USC) had to show ID and I gave the officer my passport. After looking at the AOS documents and verifying credentials were correct, she proceeded to hear 'our story' and the supporting evidence, namely our pictures. She asked some questions regarding particular events, revealing that our families have met and we've had an extensive history together. She asked for supporting documents to add strength to our case, of which we submitted joint bank statements, joint loan agreements, joint vehicle purchase and registration, joint insurance and some other bits and bobs.

She took these items away for photocopying and upon coming back she notified us that our case would be approved today, stamped and sealed my passport with the temporary green card and told me about the removal of conditions that will be required soon.

It was a very pleasant experience and put my mind at ease. The staff at the Buffalo office were very nice.

Good luck to all who have their interviews soon and may true love prevail!

All the waits, stresses, tears, heartaches, all the miserable feelings you feel along the way will be paid off once you get what you've been hoping for...oh and WITHOUT PRAYERS? will be like trying to start a fire with water, JUST WON'T WORK!
