Hello VJ members,

First of all I want to thank all of you guys that answered my questions (some of them were too silly) and helped to fill my file for adjustment of status successfully I could not do it without your help.

Here my interview experience:

My husband and I arrived for our interview 30 minutes before,our interview was set up for 10:30am and Immigration Officer called us at 11:00am.

I do not know if this is a new rule but my husband and I had interview separately, which I was not worried about it but I was surprised because I read they usually do not do those kind of interviews unless your case is a little suspicious,.,,,anyway the immigration officer interviewed my husband first,took 10 minutes, then it was my turn. she took to this big area with a lot of cubicles I had the interview on one of them. she was a very serious woman ,very professional although she was serious, she was nice.

she asked only two questions: how i meet my husband? and how did we keep the relationship? after that she asked all the questions in the I-485 and said : "I'm going to to approve your case so your GC is going to arrive in 2 or 3 weeks. she took my I-94 and EAD too and explained the removal conditions ,since my GC will be only for two years (I'm married less than 2 years with my husband).

My husband interview: two questions: how did we meet? how did we kee the long distance relationship? she looked all our wedding pictures and pictures of my husband when he went to Peru to visit me. also, she keep our lease contract and bank statements.

finally, I must say it was not stressful at all, it all came well because my husband and I prepared all file properly and we communicate a lot.We are very happy

GOOD LUCK TO EVERYBODY that is still in this journey.I know it is a lot of paperwork but in the end it it worthy .

Congrats! It sounds like it went well, unlike my own interview in Boston. I asked an immigration lawyer if my experience was at all common (we had *tons* of evidence, have known each other for 10 years, and the only thing we didn't have was a joint bank account) and her reaction was "sounds like your interviewer was having a bad day and felt like taking it out on the two of you".

Good luck, and enjoy checking the mailbox!
