Timeline

Arrival in USA: 04/17/2011 - Approved stay until September 1st no visa required.

Married: 09/22/2011 in New Orleans

File date: 12/28/2011

Received: 12/30/2011

Biometrics: 02/27/2012

EAD received: 03/03/2012

SSN application: 03/23/2012

SSN received: 03/30/2012

Interview: 04/24/2012

Well we left with lots of time to spare.. and arrived a few minutes late thanks to security. Most sensitive scanners ever! DH suffers from heavy metal toxicity, so it's in his body. He made the scanners AND the little hand wand go off. I nearly died laughing. We took our seats in the waiting room and the wait began. Our 1:30 appointment didn't get called until 3pm. Not what I was expecting, but we survived. DH got to read and enjoy his book for a bit.

We got called back. They totally butchered my last name, but it's nothing I'm not used to (and it's not uncommon, Americans seem to assume the L is silent). We got settled in her office, did the usual and went over the packet.

They asked DH about how we met. Where we met etc. Asked about his divorce, about being separated etc. Thankfully he had that information down pat. Then they asked him about his ex wife, and his son.. They asked about him coming to see me in Canada, whether he got to meet my family, what they though of him (which made us both laugh because for the longest time my mother hated him just because he was going to take me away.. and he has a pony tail and she think's that's silly), asked about other trips, which we didn't have.

She looked over the packet, flipped through some pictures we brought, kept a copy of our 2nd lease. And that was it.

She was just one of the lower workers, so no one the spot approval, but she did check the top box on the form that says "Your application/petition has been recommended for approval". So now we wait. She didn't say anything about my birth certificate not being enough, but we shall see shortly what they have to say about it.

OH! And changing my name on the forms was a breeze! When it comes, it will be coming in my married name! :)

Alas, our original plane tickets have been lost, so we weren't able to get them back today. She's going to have someone look at the NBC and see if they are there. She didn't even have the original copy of our marriage certificate that we'd submitted with the packet (we have 3 more, so it's not a huge deal). But her packet didn't match ours, so I know the lawyer doesn't have them.

And, our lawyer didn't even register as representation for us. I filled out and mailed her the forms, but she never sent them to USCIS! Yet another strike against her.

LOL they gave us a paper with my alien number, her name (which is illegible), my MSC for my 485 and the "suggestion" she chose.

Now the obsessive checking of the email commences!
