ROC interview

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We had our interview today.

Our appointment was for 10:15, we got there around 9:50ish and got called in within 5 minutes. The interview lasted about 20 minutes. The person just went through our papers we have sent asking if we had the same address, worked at the same place, etc... just making sure it was up to date. These are the questions she asked

How did you meet?

Do you have any kids?

Is this your first marriage?
Is this the only place you worked at since you've been married? -to me
Asked me how my parents felt about me marrying someone from another country
Asked us when our days off from work are, what times do we work

Asked what we do together
Asked about sharing bank accounts, credit cards, etc..
Asked about health insurance

Asked why he chose to leave Canada instead of me leaving the US

Can't really remember all of the quesions, but it was simpe things like that. Basically just asking for what we already filled out when we applied. We had everything she asked for, only problem is she asked twice for pictures with my family and we didn't have any new ones to give. We aren't really picture people. She said she will make her decision about whether or not we will need to give more information or if we are approved. She said we will know by mail and they don't do it online anymore. She did ask for his two passport photos "just in case" as we were about to leave, so hopefully that is a good sign...I really hope us not having anymore pictures wont be the only reason we get an RFE, other than that the interview went well and other than pictures we weren't missing anthing she needed. We filed in Februaury, I can't believe it has taken this long, hopefully this will be it.

We were pretty nervous going in, but if you are truthful and have nothing to hide it is a really simple interview.

I think I would rather have a stokes interview than to be asked for more information/pictures that I don't have! :o

The few interview reviews that I have read on here, most of the officers tell them if they are approved after the interview...hopefully every officer does things differently.

Sometimes it's not approved immediately because you got a newer officer that doesn't have the authority yet and needs to clear it with their supervisor. I wouldn't worry :)

Thanks for posting this interview review.

Question for you… Did the officer have all the evidence you sent in with your ROC? Or did you need to re-print everything to bring to the interview?

Hoping the best for your results!

She had everything we have ever sent since we first started our K1 in 2010.

I printed out everthing we sent in before. Technically she only asked for our 2012 taxes (I sent those in, not sure why she needed another copy) and she asked for pictures. As she was asking if we had health insurance, etc I just handed her the papers I brought, but she didn't directy ask for them.

What is a stokes interview?

It's when they separate you from your spouse, ask you both questions and then compare your answers to see if one or both of you are lying.


ROC from CR-1 visa (Green Card expiration date was Nov 24th 2016)

 

Link to the evidence I submitted. Be sure to send evidence spanning your entire marriage (especially for K-1) or as far back as you can. Just one or two bank statements will not cut it. I primarily focused on the two years of living here since I came in on a CR-1. If you don't have the fundamentals (i.e. joint accounts/policies), you can explain why in the covering letter. E.g. "While we do not have joint utilities, we both contribute to them from our joint bank account".

 

September 26th 2016: I-751 package sent to CSC

September 28th 2016: Package delivered
September 30th 2016: Check cashed
October 3rd 2016: NOA1 received with receipt date of 09/28/16
November 3rd 2016: Biometrics received with appointment date of 11/14/16.
November 14th 2016: Attended biometrics appointment
October 30th 2017: Infopass appointment to get I-551 stamp
February 26th 2018: I-751 case number (aka the NOA1 receipt number) becomes trackable
March 14th 2018: Submitted service request due to being outside of processing time.

March 15th 2018: ROC approved. 535 days (1 year, 5 months and 17 days)

March 29th 2018: Card being produced

April 4th 2018: Card mailed out

April 6th 2018: Card in hand. Has incorrect "resident since" date. Submitted service request on I-751 case (typographical error on permanent resident card) and an I-90 online.

April 2018 - August 7th 2018: Tons of service requests, emails and now senator involvement to get my corrected green card back because what the heck, USCIS. Also some time in May I sent a letter to Potomac telling them I want to withdraw my I-90 since CSC were handling it.

August 8th 2018: Card in production thanks to the direct involvement of Senator Sherrod Brown's team

August 13th 2018: Card mailed

August 15th 2018: Card in hand with correct date. :joy:

October 31st 2018: Potomac sends out a notice stating they have closed out my I-90 per my request. Yay for no duplicate card drama.

You should expect an interview, all transfers to local office results in interviews. They are just waiting for an opening interview schedule for you. Good luck.
