hey everyone¬†ūüė䬆

 

 I created this profile to get some answers and to follow ppl that go through the same journey like we do, so i have been on a K1 visa with my

 now husband and we got married on jan 2019.

We applied for the adjustment of status right after and it is currently processing ,so my question is; Will there be another interview ??

i already had a interview at the FfM embassy in Germany bc of my F-129 ,that was approved¬†ūü§ó¬†

some ppl tell me that i will get the GC in the mail ,others tell me i have to have another interview.

thanks in advance for the help i might receive ....

Most people these days I believe are going through interviews. We didn't and a lot of others didn't, just as you said, received the GC in the mail. 

But about a year ago I think there was a push to get more into interviews to verify things.
