CSC Transfer and Interview???

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Question:

I have read a lot of messages where people had their case sent to CSC and then received the GC and welcome letter briefly after. Did everyone still have an interview or was that waived? On the timeline where it says that the Green Card was received, is that official or is that simply a letter? More info on this matter would be greatly appreciated. It has been 60 days since our ap was received and we are anxiously awaiting anything, in particular is work authorization.

From what I can gather if your case is tranferred to CSC you will not be required to attend an interview. I don't think every single case gets transferred though, some people on VJ are still getting notices for interviews at their local office.

It seems that CSC transferees are those who adjust status from fiance visa. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I also think only K1 people get transferred to CSC. The interview is no problem though, I just think they wouldn't want to adjust from other visas without interview. I don't mind, even though we adjusted from J1 the interview won't be a problem since we are a real couple.

I am also waiting for my AP... Btw @ all CSC transferees: I think the OP wants to know how fast AP is issued or if the Greencard will arrive so soon that there is no need for AP???

:) You know, I am referring to the onoing topic about people who didn't come on K1... Seems that some people assume they are no real couples... Pretty scary thread, so full of prejudices, anger and hate. Makes me feel that I have to point out in every post now that there are other situations. Btw where I worked a lot of people got married on H1B. They are in America for 4 to 6 years, and of course it might happen that they fall in love and get married... Anyway, just my pov.

My wife's case was transferred to CSC and the case was approved without an interview. Our AOS was simple no pervious marriage, no kids, no criminal record. From what I have seen most people get approved without an interview but there are people transferred to CSC that do wait a long time. Look at my timeline and the timeline on my signature.

AOS sent 6/5/06

Transferred to CSC 8/28/06

Approved 9/15/06

Our petition was transferred to CSC back in January and about 4 weeks later Claudeth received her approval email and welcome letter. A couple of days after that she received the GC. We did not have an interview. Good luck :D

I think that a lot of the people who do not have to interview are K1 visa people who have already had interviews, background checks etc. Most of the process is already done. I hope we get ours soon. Ours was sent to CSC the end of August and was "received" by the CSC the 13th of September. I hope it comes soon. Time for celebration!!!!!!
