AOS Interview. Told told expect my card but get home to email for rfe. Confused!

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We had our AOS interview yesterday. It went really well.

 

We had a binder with all our original copies of certificates and ID plus copies for them to keep. We had our evidence of cohabitation with various joint accounts and shared insurance and various pictures of the wedding and married life. The officer asked a few questions and didn't even look at the binder. He was happy to tell us that he was satisfied and I would receive my GC in 2 weeks.

 

Out of curiosity I check the case status when we got home and it has said "RFE has been mailed" really confused and a little annoyed as we have told a lot of people it's all done and dusted. I'll be frustrated if the RFE is for something we had with us. 

 

Has anyone else seen this happen?

USCIS online status is notorious for showing incorrect information. That being said, there is a slight chance that there is something they realized that they did not have. 

I would sign up for the next available infopass and go in to talk to them. 

Thanks for your reply. 

 

The office is nearly 3hrs away. Not so easy to visit. 

 

I called them and explained what happened. The guy just apologised but didn't know why we were told this. To add to my frustration when I asked if he could tell my what evidence is needed he told me he could see it but couldn't tell me. He also said no one else could tell me even under these circumstances of being given false hope and the wrong information.

I'd just note that most offices no longer let you schedule an Infopass appointment. You would need to call and request that an appointment is needed. In this particular case, that seems unlikely as they are waiting for processing / a decision.

That's a bummer. I hope you get the RFE asap and it is something trivial you can sort out rather quick. Keep us updated and best of luck!

Thanks for the correction. Is this a recent development?

Hey guys, I got my RFE. Super frustrating. They want a copy of my divorce Decree from my first marriage. I had the original and a copy in my folder with me at the interview. We posted it today. Hopefully it doesn't hold things up too much.

That's frustrating. They really should have caught the fact that your divorce decree was missing when you first filed for AOS. It is required initial evidence. 

It's a good thing they caught it now. If it takes too long to make a decision, just reach out to your US Senator(s). They will shake the tree for you.
