AOS Interview Experience

25 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

Just want to share my experience about how my interview went today;

Our interview is scheduled for 11am. We were at the field office about 10.45 and was seated at the lobby at exactly 11am. in about 5 minutes my name was called by the officer conducting the interview. He was very nice! (Lucky us!) Before we sat down, He had us sworn to tell the truth nothing but the truth. Then we were seated and started the interview.

First, he explained as to what this interview is for then he asked questions after.

IO: Before I start asking you questions, I will need your passport and your I-94.

Me: I was freaking out because I forgot where I put my orignal I-94 but then the IO prolly saw me getting nervous so he said, (It's okay, it's not a huge thing I have a copy in my file, If you don't have it, don't worry about it.) I found it after digging through our recent boarding passes and everything! Thank goodness! LOL

IO: Were you married before you came here?

Me: Yes, We were married before we came here.

IO: Do you have any proofs like, Insurance, Tax forms or any financial statement or pictures? (We handed it to him and he went and photo copied the documents we gave him)

IO: So, where did you guys meet?

Hubby: We met online

Me: I nodded and smiled.

IO: of course, that's very common nowadays.. (with a smile on the face) :)

IO: Which website did you guys meet? (still with a smile on the face) :)

Hubby: Myspace :)

IO: Oh okay, that's good. So when did you start talking on phone? or do you use any other type of messenger?

Me: Yes, We used skype mostly and Yahoo.

Hubby: yeah, it's cheaper to use skype.

IO: That's true! everyone likes skype. haha.

IO: So how long did it take for you guys to meet in person?

Hubby: About 6 Months...

Me: Yes, cause I came here to visit him for a week in August 2009.

IO: Okay, That's good.

IO: Now I'm going to ask you questions about your I-485. (He confirmed if my name and address were correct on my I-485 form, He also asked me general questions about terrorism and felony and all that stuff.

IO: Sounds good, well you are already approved. because I approved you, obviously. (still smiling)

IO: You should get your Greencard in about 2-5 weeks or less...

The IO was very nice and explained everything about being a resident.. he also explained that he will be giving me a 2 year conditional status as we are married for less than 2 years. Than we would have to renes after 2 years and get the greencard changed to unconditional status. My husband, him and I talked and talked about a lot of things like culture and driving and how to become a citizen and all that.. .. All in all it was a very easy interview and it lasted for about 30mins. He congratulated us and shakes our hands and as we walked out of the office I let out a slight yell saying (WOOOHOO!!) I know! I am such a dork, the IO just smiled and typed away on his keyboard! :rofl:

NO IMMIGRATION TILL 2013!!!! YAY!! :):dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:

Im wishing everyone the best of luck! God never stop answering prayers,God is good all the time! May god bless you all! (L) (L) (L)

Cheers!!!!!!!!! :D

Oct 2005 - met my baby

Dec 2006 - he proposed

Feb 2007 - K-1 filed

Dec 2007 - K-1 Visa Interview (denied), the reason: i was overstayed my previous visit in 2000-2003 (my bad)

March 2009 - AOS filed

April 2009 - Biometric

June 2011 - ROC filed

The wait would be unbearable but it'll be worth it. It strengthens the love, it attaches you even more to each other, it shows how your man would do whatever it takes to be with you, that he will never give up on you because he LOVES you!! 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!

Yep thats him!!! We had the same officer!!! That is soooo cool!

I was too excited I didnt even pay attention when he was introducing himself! Im such a dork, I remember my hubby asked his name before we left, I thought I heard wormer or warmer. and also for some reason I never looked around I was just focused on looking at my Husband and interviewer back and forth! lol

Mind you, he also told us that he went through all this process and it was hard because it took him 1 yr and 9 months to get his greencard but now he's a naturalized citizen... ;)

Congratulations!

Thanks Lisa!! Good luck on your interview! ;)

Congrats

Thank you! ;)
