Just wanted to share the good news. My AOS was finally approved yesterday. Almost took 380 days since the Dallas Office is so backlogged.

Interview was pretty straight forward. The Officer really liked the Photo Album, letters from our employers, Paystubs, Tax Returns (Joint) and previous years and itineraries for our trips taken together. We also took our car insurance cards (With both our names), loan documentation for the new car we bought together, Health Insurance cards, Rent (Past, current, future). Also we are building a house, so we had the documentation from the builder with both our names on it.

Also, make sure to take a updated Medical (I-693) The officer asked for a updated one since my interview took more than a year. Luckily I got the medical examination redone and had the latest results with me.

The questions were fairly simple. Took less than 30 minutes. Good Luck to y'all!

I won't call it a fast process! Ha...It took me almost 11 months to get interview. I had no movement on my case since Sep 2015 when I got my fingerprinting done. Is Dallas your local office for your interview?

what a fast process! I sent my packet in February and it said they are still ready for schedule the interview....SMH
