USCIS Seattle Interview

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: IR-5 Country: Philippines

My interview was scheduled at 8am and was interviewed at around 0830. Thought that 30 minute wait felt like forever since I was pretty anxious on what the questions will be. Anyways, interview was pretty quick. Since my petition was a marriage based petition, the interviewing officer asked questions regarding our marriage, asked if we have any back taxes that's needed to be paid. I gave her the 2009 Income Tax return since she said she already had the 2006-2008 ones. Then she asked me if there's any more documents so I gave her the latest mortgage after that she didn't ask for anything more. She ended up giving me back the tax return and the mortgage since she told me that my file is way too think already that she doesn't see the need for those things to be added. Then she informed me that the office will be holding an Oath Taking later that noon and asked me if I was interested in attending that. I didn't hesitate. Now I'm an American :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: Finally,it's all done. I am so happy!!!
