Interview went well in manchester today

Recommended Posts

I had my greencard interview today. We had brought a folder with over 100+ documents of evidence just to be on the safe side.

All the guy asked was

* He wanted to see our passports and my EAD card.

* Wanted to know how we met. He laughed when my wife told him we met him in the pub.

* He asked to see marriage certificate, and 2 joint bills. This was after i asked him did he want to see anything from our folder.

* He then said the only problem we have is we need a co sponsor. Aparently my wifes income while she worked in ireland doesnt count as her income has to be earned in the states. We filed with IRS but they werent enough. That was nice considering my wife earned 60k each year while in ireland. So he told us to mail in the i-485 form with an income of over 16k. My wifes mother has aggreed to be co sponsor.

* Lastly he said he has approved me and i can expect the greencard in 2-3 weeks but as i needed a co sponsor he couldnt stamp my passport.

So all in all it was fine. The time was about 16 minutes give or take.

Our next project is finding somewhere more permanent to live. We have outgrown my wifes parents house as we need somewhere closer to boston. All our assets are tied up in ireland so it will prob be 3 months before we can afford to buy. We found our dream condo but we will have to pass up the oportuntity. Thanks to 7 months of living on one wage we are stone broke. :crying::crying::crying:
