We just had the interview in Detroit. Is it normal to NOT be told if you are approved at the end of the interview? He just said he would have to review the paperwork and had us sign something that said it could be 60-90 days. His questions were not deep and were all quite surface. All questions were answered properly without any issues. I didn’t hold her hand or hug her or kiss her during the interview. Is that a problem? I didn’t want to make it look like I was trying to prove something. I am nervous, to be honest. I figured they would tell us we were approved right there.

It is normal. You don't need to hold hands or smooch at the interview.

Probably the interviewer needs to get the approval from his/her manager.

Thank you. I don’t understand why it would take 60-90 days!

I just feel really nervous. I don’t want to deal with a denial of my wife and stepson’s green cards!!

Because it is a goverment agency. That is their standard timeframe. I don't know their processes but assume there is one or two managers who can approve it, or they need to request more info from storage and such. 

If they didn't say that anything is missing and you provided bonafide relationship proof you will be fine.

My wife had her interview back in 2015 at the Detroit office.  Her results were similar, no decision at the end, but she received approval three days later.  I think the 60-90 days is a standard value given, but if there were no issues, you should hear something soon.

 

Good Luck!

Thanks. The guy was really nonchalant about things and did not seem to want to get into a lot of information.

It's normal. Check online, they usually don't say you're approved on the spot anymore. If you provided the bonafides it should be fine.

Our status just changed today on the USCIS website and said that a new card is being produced and will be mailed to the address you provided to us. Does that mean the green card is being produced and will be mailed to us? However we have two case numbers. One for my wife and one for her 14 year old son, but only one of the statuses has changed.

Yes. It's very common to be told "we'll have a decision in 30/60/90/120 days" at the end of the interview... and then see a status update to 'new card is being produced' (or something else that indicates approval) within the next few days, or even hours.

Does that mean it is approved? Also, we have two case numbers. One for my wife and one for my 14 year old stepson. The status on USCIS website changed for one of the case numbers to “New card is being produced”, but the other has not changed. Do you think that is normal?
