  1. Sounds like an approval! Glad things are working out well for you two. We got approved back on Aug 8th, even though I had lost my job. They asked me if I still worked at X and I was honest and said NO. The person checked the box that I was still employed anyway (I think it was time for her to go home and she couldn't be bothered with it). BTW, it will about 2.5 months for the greencard to actually arrive in the mail after approval. Hopefully it's faster for you.
  2. Just a quick update. The green card finally arrived in the mail the week before last and I got a job too! I was worried there for a bit, but things have worked out just fine. Hope everyone else is dealing with a smooth process.
  3. Just a quick update to say that our interview went well yesterday and we were approved.
  4. I appreciate all the feedback from everyone on this thread. What actually happened really didn't align with any of the responses here. The interview was about 20 minutes long. Towards the end of the interview, she asked if I worked for the place I had submitted with the 485. I said no, that I was laid off, and that was it, she never spoke another word about it. Then she flipped through the paperwork and asked a few other questions unrelated to my employment status and said we were approved.
  5. Hi @janet3 Thanks for the replies. I hope that you and yours are well and that this process is treating you ok. We have the interview next week on the 8th and we realize that due to the nature of USCIS, and their unpredictability, any number of scenarios ranging from tragic to no problem at all could occur. We are just hoping that having our 486 rejected doesn’t get added to our already stressful plate (unemployment, possible eviction, finding a job, moving, child support order modifications, etc).
  6. Yes, there's quite a bit of "hope" needed here. I wasn't trying to be rude either, but it sure might come across that way while I am dealing with these circumstances.
  7. I think we got the answers we needed from @geowrian Here are the facts. They may or may not ask about employment. If they do we will be prepared to show our current income and employment status. If they don't, we are not going to mention it and will update them of our new employer once that's known. Depending on if they ask us about employment, we may run into the following: RFE Need to file a new 864 Need to file a new 485 Need to respond to an NTA Extremely unlikely, deportation is we can't satisfy 1, 2, 3 or 4.
  8. I am unemployed as of 7/24/18 at which time I will, in fact, be unemployed. There will be no medical benefits. I have shared the income details.
  9. Because I now have time to respond to nonsense. I don't know anything about Trump. I may have watched one video of him in my life which may have been some reality show 15 years ago. The answer to this one is no, for me. The deportation stuff was basically a joke and a way for me to underline that I was requesting a bit more detailed information about the process. Yes, severance ends if I become employed again while on it. Yes, way above the poverty line. I think you meant to say "stronger case for an IO NOT to reject". My annual income has been around or above 100k for a long time, 10+ years, without any breaks. Right, because if one does not follow the rules or meet the requirements, that's what happens. There is a procedure in place, which is what we are trying to figure out here.
  10. So basically what I said, only you gave more details around the steps of a deportation in the event no job is found that meets the minimum requirement. Thanks for that! I was really only joking about them bursting in and deporting her on the spot.
  11. So Here's what I think might happen based on all information gathered so far. We could call this the road to deportation that better not happen?: There is a 50/50 chance of being asked about employment. If they do not ask then there's nothing more to be done other than to find a job. If they do ask, point 2. They ask and we tell them we are both job searching and that we have severance for 2.5 months and unemployment for six months but unemployment has not yet been approved. Skip to main point 3 if unemployment is approved. They are ok with this, nothing more. They are not ok with this and want more, perhaps a time period to provide proof of unemployment and a new job. I find a job, all good. We were not able to find employment, but we find a sponsor and all is good We were not able to find employment or a sponsor. I assume at this point she is deported? The USCIS police burst in and deport her on the spot.

  12. Thanks, but in our case, it's a double-edged sword. Getting something temporary for the purposes of this interview might help satisfy the IO IF such questions are asked, however, My (I am the one who lost the job, I'm her husband) severance is 8000.00 dollars a month for 2.5 months, then unemployment is 2000.00 dollars a month for 6 months and then 10+k to float us after that. In fact, it's better to NOT find anything in the meantime. It's actually more secure to use these benefits, which more than likely will give us more money than if I just found just any job, and it gives me time to look for a very good job at the same time. I have to think about what REALLY brings security, not just what some moron in a USICS office thinks looks good on paper. There is still the issue of getting the unemployment approved before Aug 8th. I'm thinking RFIE if the question is asked about employment and I don't have unemployment approved in time. Of course, I hope I have a job by then, but this is within the context of what happens IF that has not happened.
