  1. You'll hopefully get it in no time. Ours went from Interview schedule to We sent your card in the mail. I have heard experience from a friend that their green card took about 6 months after the interview (it's a security thing because the spouse is Libyan) but the weird thing was that they issued the green card with the interview date (two days before their two year wedding anniversary), so now they got a conditional green card, not the permanent. Very weird!
  2. Hi @Lucky_Mimi, sorry for the delayed response. How did your interview go? We were not asked for a new medical. We only had the one that we took with us to the interview. Here's a link to our experience:
  3. Hi All - We just received out green card in the mail on Friday and I have updated my timeline on the signature. If you have any questions, please just reach out.
  4. Just wanted to give a quick update: Yesterday (November 9th), we received notifications that both I-130 and I-485 were approved on November 7th (one day after our interview). It hasn’t been updated to Card in Production yet, but, I think it should be updated to that tomorrow or day after. If anyone has any questions about our experience, please feel free to ask. good luck to everyone still waiting.
  5. Hello everyone! We had our interview yesterday and just wanted to share the experience with everyone. Our field office is Manhattan but, our case was moved to the Queens office and it explains the quick turnaround time. Our PD is 04/16/2019. Our interview was scheduled for 2:30 PM at Federal Plaza and we arrived at 2:05, went through security and headed to the 9th floor (Queens Field Office) that sent us down to 4th floor. The room was full of couples and we were called in at 3:20 PM. The officer greeted us and it looks like he was exhausted and that we're his last interview for the day. He swore us in, asked for our IDs and sat us down, looked at the application then asked "How did you two meet?" and we weren't sure who he was asking and he said anyone can answer. So, I told him how he met and he commented that he usually sees couples 10, 15 and 20 years apart and good thing we were closer in age. Asked my wife the following questions: - When was the last time you came to the US? - What is his birth date? - What are his parents' names? - What does he do for a living? Then turned to me and asked: - When is her birth date? - What are her parents' names? Then he proceeded to ask the ridiculous Yes/No questions on the application then asked us to present our evidence and we presented the following: - Current Lease (My name only on it) - Joint bank account statements - Utility bills with both our names on them - Our insurance cards from my current and former job - Wife's medical invoices - Our run club membership letters - Our medical insurance correspondences He then asked for our photo album and flipped through it asking us who some of the people were and about family. I was saying I hate taking pictures and he goes "Yeah, man, she makes you look good!" He gave us a notice and said that he needs to review all the documents and make a decision and walked us out. As soon as we stepped out, my wife remembers that he didn't take her picture or fingerprints, so she told our attorney and he was able to go back and talk to the officer. We went back to the office and he said it'll take a second and just took her picture and fingerprints and sent us on our way. I believe we were out of there at 3:40 (took about 20 minutes) and it was more of a conversation than an interrogation kind of thing. He was very funny and courteous. My wife was a little stressed out about the interview, but, he managed to make it a pleasant experience. If anyone has any questions, please let me know. In the meantime, good luck to everyone who is still waiting. Hang in there and you'll be done in no time.
  6. Yeah, I guess we got lucky. We honestly just needed some good news and were very, very surprised to get the notification that the interview was scheduled. Good luck to you if you're still waiting.
  7. We just received our interview notice today, it’s scheduled for November 6th. Our local office is Manhattan, NY. anyone else from Manhattan got their letter?
  8. Hey everyone- just wanted to give you a quick update and shed some hope on the process for the NYC filers. Yesterday we got an email that our interview has been scheduled. We’re waiting for the appointment letter to come next week. We’re in Manhattan and our field office is Manhattan at 26 Federal Plaza. I had a question For the people that received their interview letters already: How far in the future is the interview? Should it be in about a month or so?
  9. I’m sorry he feels that way. I managed to find wifey an unpaid internship and I’ve heard of people volunteering and stuff. I think he should look into that? And maybe he should start applying for jobs since the hiring process takes a while at most companies so he can have an offer by the time he gets his EAD.
  10. We just got the same update this morning. We have also received our EAD/AP combo card yesterday after filed for an emergency AP last week. Have you received your EAD yet?
  11. I hope everyone is doing well and holding up. I thought I would give an update on our case. Last month we learned that my mother in law is going to have surgery, so wifey needed to go. We consulted with the lawyer and he said to call USCIS and schedule an InfoPass to apply for an emergency AP. 07/18/19 - We called and the agent said that we can't apply for an emergency AP if we have an application pending, so he can apply for expediting which he did for us. I consulted with the attorney and he said to call back and tell them we want an emergency one, not an AP. The second agent took down all the info and wrote some notes and told us an officer would call us within 48 hours. 07/19/19 - An officer called and chatted with us about the emergency then scheduled us for August 2nd to go the local USCIS office and submit an application for emergency AP. 08/02/19 - Our appointment was at 1PM and we arrived at 12. We had all the paperwork ready (New I-131 Application, Wife's birth certificate, Medical note about mother in law's condition, two passport photos) and were seen by an officer in about 10 mins. He said everything looks good, but, the medical note needs to state when the surgery date is and that my wife will be her mom's caretaker. He said we had two hours to get it or we have to get another appt. I made calls oversees and got them to track down the doctor and he sent us a new one in email. I printed it and presented to him and he had the AP ready and signed. 08/03/19 - Received a Text/Email update that the EAD card is being produced. I am guessing the AP might have been holding back the EAD. I hope this helps. If any has questions, please let me know.
  12. I think you should just take the letter and go to the service center anyways. They usually allow walk ins before your appt date, so it’s worth trying to go after. I think you’ll be ok. It doesn’t make sense to wait 30 days and hold up the entire process.
