Hi kaaliyah. I have my interview at Garden City in June. I have searched these forums for experiences there and have found none.

Hoping someone can provide some advice on Garden City, esp. regarding the I-693A debate....

krysia, VJ is your best source of help when it comes to preparing for your interview. Check out the Guides and various Forum threads on what to take to AOS interviews. 2 weeks is enough time to get sufficient evidence together.

Best of luck and let kaaliyah and me know what the Garden City office is like.

I have nothing to add but, as someone who will likely be facing an AOS interview in NYC, maybe it's good sign that Garden City is taking on some of the interviews...? NYC is backed up unbelievably, from what I have heard.

Abby (U.S.) and Ewen (Scotland): We laughed. We cried. Our witness didn't speak English. Happily married (finally), 27 December 2006.

Latest news: Green card received 16 April 2007. USCIS-free until 3 January 2009! Eligible to naturalize 3 April 2010.
