Green card interview

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, I just had my green card interview with my wife. To give a quick run down we waited about an hour before we got in. The IO was very nice and it was only about a 20 minute interview. He asked me how I met my wife and where our first date was. He always asked when and where we got engaged and the same about our marriage. He always asked who was present at our marriage in the court and what we did afterwards. He asked my wife the address of our bank, where I work and jib position and where I used to work and jib postiion. He also kept a few pictures, our bank statement and a copy of the lease.

At the end of the interview he have us a little paper about the I-751 to remove conditions because we have been married less then 2 years and said we should hear an answer within 2-3 weeks. However he did not give us an answer. Has anyone else had a similar experience, any feedback on how you think things went, etc would be appreciated.

Thanks

Interesting.

My spouse and I had no real evidence and a similar interview. But we were told to start collecting evidence for ROC form I-751. We were approved for the 2 year GC on the spot.

I would think if you had any issues they would of been brought up in the interview. I think you just need to wait till you get notification via msg or mail.

Good LuK!

When I had my interview, I was not approved on the spot and I had a ton of evidence not to mention we have 3 kids together, whom were present as well. I was told I should hear something in a week or so. A week later I had my greencard. I just hope they don't leave me hanging like that after my citizenship interview lol that would drive me crazy.

My wife was not approved on the spot, but our IO also pretty much told us we were set when she reviewed the 751 process with us. It was two days later when the approval showed up online' and the card was here less than two weeks later. We got lucky and had a relatively quick process, less than 6 months from filing.

From other posts, it is fairly common to not be approved on the spot. My unscientific survey calls it about 50% or so. Something to do with reviews with supervisors, etc. Don't worry, check your status regularly, and hopefully you will hear something in a few days.
