  1. Thank you! We didn't get a text or email notification. We just looked after a few months of not looking and it showed up in the online portal.
  2. Wow, i am so sorry!! That sucks so much. I don't understand the way they do things at all. Our local office is Kansas City, Missouri. I am sure our office has less cases than many major cities around the country.
  3. Thank you for sharing that! At first, I was worried it was a mistake, because I have read in the USCIS rules that at least one interview is required, or at least I thought!
  4. Thank you!!! We started together and ended with approval on the same date!! Good luck with your naturalization!!
  5. Hi all, we thought we would have an interview since our AOS interview was waived, but I guess not!

  6. Hi everyone, crazy times right now. We haven't been on in awhile or looking at the case tracker because the COVID situation happened and we had our first child at the end of March. We have been in isolation now for almost 2 months. We looked today and saw that our case was moved to our local office! We are one of those that did not have an AOS interview, so I am pretty sure that we are guaranteed a ROC interview. I guess we will be waiting until they start the in-person interviews again. Happy for the movement! Hope is all is well for everyone.

  7. I love reading these! I think they are subjective based on what country they are coming from, but for my spouse: Friendly people (We live in the Midwest). Opportunity for job advancement based only on skills/experience The variety of food options for breakfast and lunch - Dutch breakfast/lunch is typically a piece of bread with toppings. Scrambled eggs just flabbergasted him, lol.
  8. @Ljon - An extreme outlier..haven't seen anything else like it so far. California Service Center.
  9. Yes, the times reported by USCIS are usually (hopefully) longer, but MSC also seems to be an outlier.
  10. It seems like USCIS updated processing times recently and for TSC, it is not so good..oof. https://egov.uscis.gov/processing-times/
  11. You're not to blame. You haven't failed. Marriage is two people. Don't be so hard on yourself (yes, easier said than done). This is just a rocky path and you will get through it. IMO, those saying the beginning of marriage is all happy and roses - full of BS. Let go of what others say/thing, especially those with no K1 experience. You will be happy again. It will take time. Your life will most likely look different than you expected or planned, but this isn't a life sentence.
  12. It gets better or it is possible to get better even if you have to make hard choices. The time waiting for the EAD and AOS to be approved was awful and miserable. There is so much to it that I can't possibly type out here. All of the things that come with AOS (not being able to work, so much down time, etc) on top of having a spouse that has just moved to a new country/culture and being away from their friends and family. I think it is great that you are going to counseling. I suggest going to couples counseling if possible. It helps to have a mediator to deal with the new changes that are going on in your relationship. You have two people that have lived individual lives, but stayed connected through technology, but it is completely different when these 2 people are now living together. You have to work through a lot of stuff. We went to marriage counseling during the AOS process and it helped us greatly. However, if you stick with it and have two people that want the relationship and are willing to put the work in - it gets better. We have been married for almost 3 years. We have a house. My husband (immigrant) has a good job that makes him happy. We are expecting our first child in March. Our marriage/relationship is stronger than it has ever been. Were there points in the AOS phase when I was scared and worried that it wouldn't be like this? Absolutely. Marriage is hard. Marriage is even more difficult when you have USCIS as part of your relationship and you're dealing with all of that. You may live in a small town that you aren't happy with, but do you have to stay there? You may not be able to move right away, but you can make a plan. A job may not be your dream job, but it will help create normalcy. It will give you a schedule and get you out of the house. Of course, your husband is going to go out and have fun, but voicing how it makes you feel to your husband could help you get it off your chest. I don't know all of the information in your life or relationship, but I am the American spouse and I knew that I would and should make compromises in my life, since my husband gave up A LOT to move to the US. I hope this may help a little bit. Just don't give up, especially not yet. Also, I am the same age as you are, if you want to reach out to me, I would be happy to talk and listen.
  13. They are at MSC - National Benefits Center..where it seems like most original CR1 cases are going and they are moving much faster than the other service centers.
  14. Ours is still showing that fingerprints were taken. Texas Service Center - ROC from AOS from k1 visa
  15. Yes. But we peoples are still going through ROC which is where these questions/threads are coming up and "newbies" aren't familiar. I just don't want her to be alarmed over a normal process.
