We took the instructions on the I-797c, Notice of Action, AOS Interview Appointment, quite literally. We brought every scrap of paper/document that we had accumulated since starting our immigration journey. It was a good thing, during the interview the IO asked to see the original copy of my divorce decree. Yes, the copy of which that I had submitted when I initially sent in the Form I-129F, Petition for Alien Fiancee(e), at the beginning of our immigration journey. Thankfully, I had brought the original, and was able to provide him with a color laser copy of it. Having it certainly prevented us from likely getting a RFE. You never know what they may ask for at the interview.


Good luck at your interview.

Completed: K1/K2 (271 days) - AOS/EAD/AP (134 days) - ROC (279 days)
