Horrible Interview....but APPROVED!!!!

Recommended Posts

Ok I am just getting back from the Interview and it was so bad it was comical....but have hope, even a bad one can result in approval. LOL So here it goes:

We are driving down to the office and I am a bit worried because I want to be there early for the appointment. My wife tells me why are you nervous, I am not nervous, our marriage is real, relax. I am like whatever, we just need to get downtown so we can get parking and walk to the office. We get there and I send my wife through security, so be prepared for that. I got to skip it due to my work. We get to the office about 15 minutes early no problems. Around 2:20 they call us into the back. I try to engage in small talk with the interviewer, but she was a little standoffish. Hmm...not good. We get to her desk and it is a little awkward. We get sworn in and then she starts verifying the information on the application. At this point my wife started getting nervous and forgot all of her English! LOL So she asks her about the address and my wife had mumble mouth, it took for times to get some semblance of the address out. Then she got nervous about her birthday. I am thinking oh boy, this is NOT going well at all. Then we get to her kids birthday, and I made a mistake on the form and put the wrong year. A comedy of errors was ensuing. Then we get to the really tricky stuff My wife has been married twice and has two kids by two different men who she was never married to. So the interviewer was trying to pin down dates of divorce and when relationships were established. This was the most important part of the interview as I looked at the paper and it said, multiple marriages, so I knew exactly what she was going for. So to make this really bad, my wife could not remember when she got divorced, she knew the year, but not the month. At this point I had given up all hope. Then she asked about the kids father and more confusion happened. At one point she said "I can't keep track of all these men", under he breathe. I was a little irked about that and filled it in my mental Rolodex if things didn't go well. Then the wife couldn't remember the last name of her oldest kids father. I was about done at this point. No hope, denial in the future and mega lawyers fees were in my thoughts. So then she asked me a few simple questions no big deal. Then she asked about when I met her family. I could not remember which trip to DR in which I met her family! Now I am screwing up. LOL So we get passed that and I give her tons of information to show the co mingled assets. We had to do some extra paperwork for my job, so I gave her that. We gave her about 15 pictures that we had taken since she had been here as well as an article in a magazine about some volunteer work we have done. So I am waiting for the bad news and she tells us, I am approving your application. I am completly floored. We had a horrible interview and my wife forgot her english and we got approved! I was extactic. I clarified that it was approved or if we needed additional steps and she said its approved and has to be processed. I was like cool We left and my wife is complaining because the lady told her 90 days. I told her that they say 90 days to give themselves time just in case something happens. We walked 10 minutes to the car, then I forgot to get validation so I had to walk back and get the machine to punch it. When I got back to the card my wife said she got a message, she shows it to me and it says.........

New Card Is Being Produced

honestly, make sure you nail those life events down. Out interview was about an hour and she was really trying to pin down the time line of my wifes kids being born and her marriages. Look at your application form and make sure that you go over the data there...address, dob, they ask all the drug/prostitution/trafficing questions you said no to. If there are kids they ask names birthday and father name. The pain was mostly our own doing. It was kind of funny when we started fussing at each other over when we went to her parents house. LOL

  • Placed on Request online for RFE hardcopy to be sent by mail on September 14, 2016
  • As of October 4, 2016 Still waiting for RFE hardcopy to come in the mail, called USCIS on September 30, 2016 no help.
  • As of November 3, 2016 We received an email in regards to not receiving in the mail the Request for Evidence (RFE) , come to find out they really didn't need any additional information. So now the have to wait another 120 more days before we can get an interview or approval. This is some BS.
  • As of February 7, 2017, We received in the mail Interview Date for AOS on March 20, 2017
