We had our interview last Feb.8, 2012. We just brought a duplicate AOS packet of what we submitted. Even though we submitted copies of my birth certificate, marriage certificate, husband's naturalization certificate, the IO also asked to see the originals (he just glanced at it in the clearbook I brought) He asked to see both of our passports too. He even questioned why I submitted the I-693 since I already undergone a medical exam in my home country, I just said I followed instructions about the vaccination record not completed. He gave us the impression we didn't need the I-693 (good thing we only paid $15 for the transcription!). He said since we were just newlyweds, its understandable we didn't have enough documents together yet given at the time of the interview

He also made copies of my husband's driver's license & my CA ID since it shows we live at the same address. Other than that, we only had a fax letter from my husband's insurance company showing we were on the same plan. We live with his mother so we couldn't show any lease/mortgages; their family also has a cellphone plan under his mother's name so we couldn't show that either.

Don't forget to bring photos too, especially of the wedding. The IO kept 3 photos of what I brought. The only thing I remember him asking was how we met & scribbled the stuff we said on our file.

Good luck!

Thank you for the responce! its really a big help. just few questions, i have kids with my previous relationship, they said i need their birthcertificate.. i dont have it right now, i dont get it why they need it since they arent with me on this adjustment of status.. we dont have a lease contract cuz he is been living in this apartment before i arrived here. and if we ask the landlord to put my name on the lease we need to renew the contract that is very impossible to happen since we are moving in Oklahoma on May 27.. like what i have said we dont have joint bank account yet and the interview will be on may 08,2012.. his bank is in Oklahoma so we can do that bank account thing AFTER the nterview.. iam freaking out right now, iam so scared that after all this i will get denied :(
