Thank you! We sent it to Lewisville Texas around mid to end Feb 2015. Then uscis approved it on May 13. Then Got approved 20 July 2015.

If your case is not complicated I dont think you will have much problem. I also think that yes they do their background checks even before the interview And no criminal cases for both parties - you should be all good!
