The 221 (g) didn't elaborate or ask for a specific thing? ?

From what I can understand, they'll gonna send you an email soon and that email should ask for something. when you're able to procure that thing then you can submit your passports (old and new). I dunno but for me, them getting your passport is a good sign. when I had my interview and the CO gave me back my passport along with my original documents, I felt sad and thought to myself what could have gone wrong. in the end he took my passport back when I was able to provide a joint sponsor .

Best of luck! I've been waiting for your picture the whole day in the latest approvals. ?

I never got any feeling that he was going to give me 221g. He was very nice. Whatever document he asked i was able to provide him. I think the major hit was my simple assualt case when i was in US with wife while i was visitnh her. I have a feeling he wanted to run a background check because he took my fingerprints during interview. All of the sudden he said i will return your passport to you but once you will get an email from embassy i need to turn in my new passport and old passport ( it has my b1b2 visa) altogether. I asked him if he resfused me he said decision cant be made this time as it needa further processing.

I think it's part of the process to take our fingerprints, they took mine during my interview too. But you could probably be right, they are going to dig that assault case. I hope everything will be fine and receive that email (with good news) from them very soon. :)

In London everyone has their fingerprints taken at the interview. It's probably the same everywhere.

So sorry to hear this... I was waiting all day for good news from you.

Was the assault against your wife or a family member? Or was it a stranger? I'm wondering if they are wanting to look into it further to make sure it is not a domestic violence issue?

;,( yes basically we were celebrating new years eve in downtown and one drunk guy pushed my wife unexpectedly and i pushed him back. Yes earlier cops thought i pushed my wife so they arrested me for domestic voilence but i didnt go to jail all they let me go with a paper to apper on a particular day. After that my lawyer was able to resolve it and bring it down to simple assualt with only $65 fine with no classes or community service.

Yeah i got finger printed three times at the interview. First when i checked in for interview second when i took oath and third when we figured about assualt. He asked me if i have convicted for anything else. I told him i never got in trouble and i have in stayed in US for eights before too. I kinda had that feeling something will go wrong because of the case. He kept all my documents including my lease, my medical, my i864. :( lets see

Most CO plays nice (part of their training) does not mean they

will approve a person. You are in AP, they asked for nothing

because further processiing is to review and see if anything

else may be on disposition and if it falls under moral turpitude,

it wont be long

I got 221g also when they interviewed me here in Singapore. But the consulate told me just complete the 2 missing documents and bring it to aramex together with my passport that's all they say. They never told me also to return for second interview :)

I was interviewed on 23rd November 2016. Co went over basic questions and i answered them all. I had a simple assualt case when i was visiting my wife. There was no jail time only $65 fine i had to pay. So Co brought question about that case and he already had the dispostion from NVC. He also asked about the pamplet i was given while interview about domestic violence and asked my to call on menioned number if i am in trouble. At the end he handed iver me 221g which states that my case need further processing and i will be contacted by embassy. He specially mentioned to turn in my old passport too when i get an email.

Now its been 2 weeks. And i have seen many updates on ceas.

1st dec - date changed

2nd dec- date changed
