Hi everyone! as promised, i wanted to let you know how our interview went after being doubtful because of my "evidence". our appointment was at 8:40 am on Monday and we arrived at 8:00. we waited until about 9 to be called in. the officer was very nice. he was actually phillipino so my husband started asking him about his country and stuff. finally he said the interview would start. he asked me first basic questions off of our application such as full name, birthdate, social security number. then asked us if we had kids and their names. then he asked my husband his name and date of birth along with his mothers name and his place of birth. also, he asked me, not my husband, how we met. he then requested the evidence. we showed him our wedding album, he took two pictures off of it. and showed him pictures from our honeymoon in san francisco. after that, i gave him my electricity bill, a letter from my employer stating what date i added my husband to my insurance, oh yeah and our tax return. he asked me why we didnt have bank accounts together and i was honest and explained that to him. he then said that he was going to approve the petition and that we would get the greencard within 30 days. :) i still dont see the actual approved step on the website. i see the below:

On April 2, 2012, we mailed you a notice that we had registered this customer's new permanent resident status. Please follow any instructions on the notice. Your new permanent resident card should be mailed within 60 days following this registration or after you complete any ADIT processing referred to in the welcome notice, whichever is later. If you move before receiving your card, please call our customer service center at 1-800-375-5283.

basically, it was a piece of cake and we were all worked up over nothing. he kind of just observed and looked at how we reacted. i feel so relieved. thank you all for your help throughout this process.

It's not like that with everyone; it's good that you were prepared. Some experience a more detailed interview in which the IO ask for more evidence. When you have someone from your nationality, it sometimes ends favorably with the harassment level being next to zero.

The email you received is your status report confirming your approval. Your welcome letter may arrive by the weekend. Yay! Congrats again.
