  1. I had my combo interview on July 11th at the Washington DC field office. First of, I thought my interview was at 9:30, and I was late and arrived at 9:40.. Once I got there, I found out that my interview was actually at 9:20 and I missed the call. I was told to wait some more, and they would try to fit me in. When it was finally my turn again (at around 11am), the officer said they had to do I-751 and N-400 separately, and I wouldn't know if I could have my N400 interview until I was approved for i-751 by the first interviewer... Well this was different than what I read here from others' combo interview experiences. Anyways, it's fine.. So we started and she asked the standard questions from the i-751 application form. I didn't bring any supporting materials as the N-400 interview notification didn't ask for anything other than my husband and my passports/IDs. But since I just got back from a trip the day before the interview, I was a bit of a mess that day.. I brought my old expired passport, instead of the new one (so she asked for my driver's license instead). I also told her the wrong year for the date of our marriage (I said 2016, while it should be 2015... 2016 is the year that GC was issued). It also turned out that in the application form, I mistakenly signed in the place where the petitioner (my husband) should have signed... The interviewer had a serious face, didn't smile much, but she didn't make a fuss about it and just told my husband to sign at the right place on the application form, which was very nice of her. The interviewer also asked us if we brought any new evidence. In response, I told her that we purchased a new house together, but we hadn't received the deed in the mail yet, so all we had was some mortgage document... We also had joint tax returns from the last year -- I told her that they should be within the N-400 application; For the newest 2018 joint tax returns, it was in my dropbox and I didn't have it printed out... She said she would check the N-400 application for the tax return, and that's it. At the end of the interview, we were told to wait in the waiting room for the decision to be made. my husband asked me why I said we married in 2016, instead of 2015. Only then I realized that I gave the wrong answer and started panicking... After 10 min or so, the officer came back out and told us that I was approved. I told her that I accidentally told her the wrong year of our marriage, and she laughed and said it was ok. Afterwards we went back to wait for another 10 min, a different officer called my name, who was a super cheerful lady. She told my husband to go grab lunch while I had my N400 interview. That interview was pleasant and I was approved on the spot within 10 min. And that completes my journey here! Sorry about the long story -- I had a potato brain that day and it still went through smoothly! I thought I should share. Thanks and good luck!
