After I-751 Interview, Your case is being held for review.

17 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Just had our I-751 interview and had to deal with a super rude and impolite immigration officer. He spoke to my spouse (beneficiary) completely and wouldn't give me an opportunity to even speak. He barely looked at our documents and photos that we brought and asked only for the 2019 1040 document for the 2019 tax return.  Unfortunately, I only brought the W2 for this year and the 1040 for prior years.  For some reason, it's the only document I forgot to bring.  He then gave us the form that said our case is being held for review (there is an option stating it was approved, but the one that was checked off was the one stating it's being held).  I asked if he wanted to see everything else we brought and he said no, gave it all back to us, and that was it. I felt he was making a decision solely based on that one missing document. It wasn't conversational, he didn't ask any familial or personal questions, he didn't ask us anything at all except background information like name, dob, address, etc. and then that was it.  

 

Anyone have experiences like this?  Had to deal with an impolite and uncooperative immigration officer for their I-751 interview?

 

Thanks!

Sounds like an approval to me.  I have seen several cases which were conducted like that.  They are under no obligation to approve a case immediately.  If he intended to deny, there would have been more questions, and you would have been questioned separately.  Very, very, very  few I-751s are denied, so I wouldn't worry.

Thank you for your response! Fingers crossed!  I think our interaction with him just rubbed us the wrong way. I really hope he was like that because he had no other reason to be suspicious of our marriage.  Thanks again!

From your post, I see no reason for denial.....just wait for the status "Card is being produced"....😀

Our original I-751 interview was April of 2019 before COVID had it delayed.  We called USCIS after we hadn't heard for a while (there's a timeframe on the website where they say for you to contact them if yours has passed) and they told us to keep waiting but that we can get a travel stamp for my wife to travel as she pleased since her original green card had since expired due to the delay.  We got the notice for our I-751 interview about a month ago. Where along in the process are you? Just waiting for your I-751 interview date to be scheduled?

I didn't realize you have been waiting for this long. By now the extension already expired, no? 

 

@jihong congrats on your approval!

Yikes, Lucky Cat.  Maybe she will have a joint ROC/citizenship interview?

Question,  did you did Adjustment of Status in the US or you did the consulate processing. In order words, did u came in with an immigrant visa to the US or u got the Green card in the US. Just curious,  saw few people who did their adjustment of status interview in the US and their ROC interview was waived?

It’s sucks that you had a bad experience..if you don’t mind me asking where did you interview? My wife and I had our removal of Conditions interview on 1/5/21 in Los Angeles and the officer was awesome no pressure or rudeness whatsoever..we originally send a lot of info but I took a big stack of new evidence with me..he only asked a few questions here and there but I think what helped us was that we have and autistic child and the officer did as well so..thankfully he approved us on the spot but we did noticed the couple before us was told to wait for a response on the mail..don’t worry have faith everything will be alright 🙂

We had a VERY rude and impolite officer for our AOS interview. He was very mean and degrading to me (The USC). It was an awful experience, but we were approved.

Mine was in Manhattan, NY. Overall, I’ve had poor experiences with immigration staff. Similar to what you see at the DMV. People who feel empowered and entitled to their job and really mistreat others as if they’re beneath them. I know, not all and most aren’t like that. But the ones you meet in NY and especially at JFK airport are like that. The kind of behavior and attitude you don’t see in other countries.
