So, I just received an interview notice for our AOS. Our interview date is on the 26th of January at USCIS office in Tukwila, WA (Seattle office).

A few questions I'd like to ask few questions to the fellow VJers.

Background: My wife, Oregon native and US citizen, 22 years old. Me, South Korean and 25 years old, we met in Oregon when I was studying there in Feb 2015, got engaged in April and married in September that year at the court. We moved to Seattle together in July 2015 and been living here together ever since. In about 9 month it'll be our 2nd anniversary.

1. So trying to gather documents for AOS interview but seems like we don't have a lot of things. We have bank statements together and she's filing taxes this year jointly. We are on same phone bill but it's prepaid and she can't be on the apartment lease cause she has misdeameanor on her record (stupid theft when she was young). So it's just me.

We have bank accounts, driver license with same address, car insurance, car titles together. Is that usually enough? We are young and certain things we can't get together due to lack of credit histories.

2. What's the advice on the interview? We are super nervous even though we love each other, what if the officer doesn't think so? We didn't have proper wedding yet due to money issues and waiting till my dad retires in 2 years so he can spend time with us too. Though both parents met both of us and we do have photos.

3. Any comments on Seattle office? Are they more lenient or strict???

4. Any other evidence you would suggest us to have before the interview??

Thank you!!!
