AOS from B2 Interview Experience

Posted (edited)

My wife and I had our interview super early this morning after a lengthy wait. My wife adjusted from a B2 visa.

 

Interviewer was super friendly. The interview was maybe 20 minutes, and about 15 minutes of that was spent going over the I130/I485 forms. We needed to make numerous changes to the forms since we moved, had a kid, my wife used AP so the had to update her "last entry" date, and so on etc.  Then just a few questions about how we met, plans for future, and we spent a few minutes talking about kids since we all had infants. No questions whatsoever about "intent".

 

He recommended us for approval, but said since he's new he needs a supervisor sign-off and said we should expect something this afternoon.

Congratulations!

i have a question. how long did the whole process taken for you guys after submitting the package

Right around 13 months from when USCIS received the case to the interview. But our field office is one of the slower ones.
