Hello! Have not been on for a bit been so busy with life. We just had our I485 adjustment of status interview.

 

Questions asked.

Why did we get married?

Why did we choose USA to live?

Basic questions about ourselves (birthdates, travel dates, any kids or past marriages, etc)

Lots of small talk. Whole process lasted about 12 minutes. Interviewer was very nice and made lots of little jokes.

 

Asked to see proof of living together and joint bank accounts and insurance. Also looked at our photos. All of them.

 

At the end she said everything looks good but they need to do standard checks and see if everything checks out in the computers. I asked if the interview was good and she said yes but standard procedures and we will get our answer soon by email.

 

But it just seems strange. No solid yes or no. No paper that some people seem to get saying review. No need of extra documents. Wondering if this is the norm.

Same thing happened to us in Detroit.  We think our interviewing officer was new because there was an observer in the room.  Seemed like she was doing everything by the book. At the end we mentioned we were hoping to have green card so I could return to Canada to see my family at Christmas and she said that shouldn’t be a problem but never gave us any indication of approval.  Interview was Nov 13, approval online was about 1 week later and had green card on Nov 29.

Be sure to post a copy of your review to the respective USCIS office location: https://www.visajourney.com/reviews/ .  This could be of use to others going through the same office.

 

Good luck on your immigration journey, and hope that you receive affirmative news soon...
