K2-AOS interview- St Louis 11/08/18

Recommended Posts



We finally had over AOS interview for my bonus daughter.

She came here 7/27/17 from  the Dominican Republic when she was only 6 years old.

My husband never had to go for an AOS interview so I was unsure what they would ask of a child, now 8 years old.


When we were finally called back, they first asked her if she spoke and understood English.

She is now fluent, so no issues there.


They followed the questions on the I-485 form.

They asked her her full name, birth date, and address.

Where she was born, and where she lived the Dominican Republic as well as her mothers name.


They also asked her which airport did she first arrive to when she came the first time...She said to Grandma's :) The officer said didn't you come to Miami and she said yes.

He than asked her if they gave her any extra papers upon her arrival. They also asked her if she had traveled outside the US since arriving.


She gave the officer a chuckle when she told him that Grandma and Grandpa must be bored waiting for her interview to be over.


I had taken 3 binders of information, My husband's K1 and AOS binders and her AOS binder.


I was asked to give photos with family, school and/or anything showing her residing at our address, custody papers and my husbands green card.


He application was updated to show her social security #, AP/EAD card and A number.

I was asked if that was my signature on her application and asked to sign again for the updated information.


They asked me if I was going to adopt her, but that thought had never crossed my mind, but I did she would be an instant citizen.

Her father can become a citizen in 2020, and also if he comes a citizen she would as well.


I was told that if either does happen be sure to fill out the N-600 form for certificate of citizenship before she turns 18.


The interview lasted 40 min. only to be continued for final review.


I do not foresee any issues, but would have loved answer prior to leaving.


I am relieved it is over, and we are still waiting just a little longer I hope!
