Green card interview without final decision?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello friends, 


I just had my adjustment of status interview today and it went well, the officer was very nice and pretty much asked names and dates in the questions along with the yes/no checklist. He asked me to show any additional relation evidence I brought with me that was not sent before (which o have him) and at the end he seis he had to check some extra stuff in my file and that I’d be reviving a letter with info with what’s next to do in the process. 


I don’t know what that means and if when you’re approved you should get your approval right away? 


What is the waiting time in this type of cases? 



Also, the officer took my appointment letter (NOA)  and didn’t return it, is this the regular procedure?

Check out the K1/K3 AOS Progress Forum for more reports of this similar-sounding situation. Maybe this is the new USCIS standard answer? 

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

Its rare for an IO to state you are approved on the spot nowadays. Most approvals have to be signed off by a supervisor.

It can take up to 120 days but most take less than 1 to receive the approval notification.

Yes they can take your appt letter. That's normal too.

they are not always gonna tell you approved on the spot. i had to wait almost 2 weeks before my case status changed online to approved.  the officer was nice too, all she said is that i will keep these to review, you will hear something within few weeks. You could hear within a day, few days to a week, some may even be a month! so just be patient, good luck!!
