AOS interview - Chicago

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


Had our interview (Chicago) early morning today. Went well - could be about 15 minutes or so. My hubby (USC) and i were interviewed together.

Questions thrown to me - my date of entry as K1 in the USA; my middle name; my marital status;; my place of birth; my mother's name; crimininal records, if any; current occupation

Questions thrown to hubby - wedding date; occupation;

Presented our IDs for identification

Documents officer requested from us - my orig I-94; my EAD; my advance parole doc; husband's latest paystub

Vacc supplemement was not even asked (i had it w/ me just in case). No proofs of relationship were requested.

GC is expected in 2-3 wks. Officer also expressed surprised why it took them that long to process my papers. (See my timelines). She said that right now Chicago office is interviewing AOS with April-May 06 file dates.

Just sharing. Except for the long wait ( for my AOS processing), my "K1 journey'' has been quite good and smooth.
