Further file review after AOS interview ? :S

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hey hello whats up ?

nice to be here...had a quick question...

my wife and i went to the AOS I485 family based interview, they called me first for 10-15 minutes asked general questions that of course we knew, i went out and then she got in , 10-15 minutes and shes out with a letter that said : (not exactly word by word) that the case is held for further case review something like for 180 days.

so..everything went well, we had everything right and good..the feeling also was good when we got in and out...so what could it be ?

i need to wait 180 days ?

the interview was yesterday btw..

thanks for the responses !

It's in Tampa, and they didnt took neither of them. the I94 is also expired btw..

p.s - when my wife and IO walked out to the lobby the lady said to my wife that we will get the documents in the mail ..and my wife said which one ? the green card ? and the IO said yes and smiled. but you never know..im still stressed , i need to see it in my hand..

They often say they need to further review your case before a decision. The approval usually doesn't take too long after the interview. Perhaps you will get the online notice this week even. Whether or not they took the I-94 and EAD is not really an indicator of anything. They did not take my husband's I-94 or EAD and he was approved on the spot. Good luck!

"your case is being held for file review and you will receive a decision within 180 days. you do not need to submit any additional information at this time."
