AOS interview - case held for review- weird experience

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So we had our interview today and it went ok. It didn’t go great but it could have been worse. We were separated and I (the non usc) was interviewed first. At the end of my interview, I was given the paper saying that the case is being held for review and that I didn’t need to submit more evidence at this time etc. 


Is this normal and roughly how long does it take to receive a decision in the mail?


also, I was given this letter after my interview but before the IO interviewed my wife. How can this happen? Surely they’d interview my wife too and then decide if they can make a decision?


Also, during my interview the IO asked me to sign something so I did. Unfortunately, I was nervous and flustered and signed without even reading what I was signing so I have no idea what I signed? Is it normal to have to sign something during the interview? What could it have been? I’ve been beating myself up for being so stupid and signings without even reading


Thank you

It sounds like you were separated and given a "Stokes Interview."  This is generally given if the officer has questions about some aspect of your relationship.  They are trying to determine if will respond to the same questions similarly when separated.


Unfortunately, signing the document without reading it was a major error.  Without knowing what that document said, no one can offer any advice.  You should contact the office or officer Monday.  Ask about the document and case status.

I had my interview on the 4th and also got hit with case for review. The notice I signed basically said that i was being informed that the case was going to be reviewed and that I will get an answer within 120 days. Im so sick of playing their waiting game 😡 Waited almost a year for our interview and now theyre adding another potential 4 months.
