AOS Interview Tomorrow!!!

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We spent so long waiting for the interview to be scheduled (about 14 months after filing) and yet somehow the day completely snuck up on us! We're also moving to a new apartment this weekend and the timing of getting everything prepared has been crazy so I'm triple checking everything. Please feel free to comment with any last minute tips or words of encouragement to ease our nerves for tomorrow! For reference - I am the petitioner (USC) and my husband is the beneficiary. 

 

Here's a summary of what I've prepared for us to bring along:

  • All required docs as per interview letter (marriage certificate, birth certificates, all travel/immigration docs ever issued, etc.)
  • Originals and copies of everything we have that is related to immigration + important docs like Social security cards, birth certificates, passports, state IDs, etc. 
  • Updated Affidavit of Support with 2018 IRS tax transcript, employment verification letter, 2018 W2, last 2 months pay stubs (I got a promotion since we filed AOS so my salary is higher - assumed this would require an updated I-864 even if my income met requirements before)
  • Medical - all we have is a copy of the DS immunization form which they gave to him after completing the K1 medical, my understanding is that he doesn't need to do another medical since we filed for AOS within 1 year of the exam
  • Any and all support I could think of to show evidence of our ongoing relationship, including:
    • Medical & dental coverage with my husband listed as a dependent on the plan
    • Husband listed as beneficiary on my life insurance
    • joint checking account statement
    • joint credit card statements (1 card in my name with him as an additional cardholder; 1 card in his name with me as an additional cardholder)
    • Tmobile phone bill with both of our phone numbers listed on the plan
    • joint signed lease at our new apartment (we are moving in on Saturday; don't have a current lease as we live in a friend's house with roommates and never signed a lease)
    • receipt from airline tickets purchased for our travel back to India together in March 2019
    • Internet utility bill in his name at our current address
    • joint electric utility bill in our names at new address
    • Monthly visit summaries from my OB doctor since I became pregnant in March + copy of ultrasound picture that was taken while we were visiting in India and saw a doctor there to check my pregnancy 
    • 20-30 photos since the time my husband arrived in the US - added a few of our wedding which I had also sent with the AOS. Additional photos include ones from the marriage reception we had this year when we went back to India to visit and other photos of us together along with friends and family. 

 

One question - since we are moving and our address will be changing just 3 days after our interview, should I ask them to change the address at the interview or should I wait until we move and update in online? I'm worried to make any address changes because I've heard negative experiences where people didn't get notices after moving, but I know it's a requirement to change it. Luckily our friends will still be living at our current house so if anything goes there by mistake we would still get it. 

 

I feel like I've thought of every possible thing to show as evidence but please let me know if you think of something obvious that I have missed. Ultimately we're both confident because there's no reason not to be when our relationship is genuine, but this is my first time dealing with an actual USCIS interview so of course I'm a little nervous!! 


The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered "Man.... Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived."

You will be fine!. I had interview last week. I was worried if I didn't bring enough evidence that might be asked. But things went smooth and easy. It was just about talking about relationships etc. Good luck for tomorrow. 

Thank you!! Interview went well and the office approved him on the spot :)
