  1. You are correct on the interview being short. It lasted like 2 minutes and her mom was only asked like 2 questions. They had made up their mind before the interview started. But maybe a different CO can help even though it's likely I'll just be making a donation to the embassy
  2. Greetings everyone. I am trying to get my mother in law and father in law to visit the states and spend time with our family. A while back when my wife was under pending status for her green card we applied for a tourist visa for her mom only and was denied for lack of strong ties to her country. Background: I'm a US citizen and my wife is a permanent resident now with her 2 year resident card. Country of origin is El Salvador I have good income and write has some income now. Her family has little income and little assets (a little cashflow/savings and a small parcel of land they are building a home on) I can show affidavit of support and proof of trip coverage, which I did last time as well. Her mother has no immigration red flags and has positive travel history to Canada being granted tourist visas there twice. Father has little travel history except to neighboring countries. Also last time the interviewer found it strange we only applied for her mother and not her father and we believe that may have contributed to the denial. The reason we did that was we wanted to get one approved at a time instead of throwing away money at embassy fees if there was 0 chance. If we did this again we would do both at the same time now. But before I do anything I want to know if we have a chance at all. If there is anything wrong can do for my mother and father in law to visit us. Writing a congressman? Open to any ideas.
  3. Hello! Just updating! We had gotten the approval notice the next day and Card in hand in Saturday of that week
  4. Hello! Have not been on for a bit been so busy with life. We just had our I485 adjustment of status interview. Questions asked. Why did we get married? Why did we choose USA to live? Basic questions about ourselves (birthdates, travel dates, any kids or past marriages, etc) Lots of small talk. Whole process lasted about 12 minutes. Interviewer was very nice and made lots of little jokes. Asked to see proof of living together and joint bank accounts and insurance. Also looked at our photos. All of them. At the end she said everything looks good but they need to do standard checks and see if everything checks out in the computers. I asked if the interview was good and she said yes but standard procedures and we will get our answer soon by email. But it just seems strange. No solid yes or no. No paper that some people seem to get saying review. No need of extra documents. Wondering if this is the norm.
  5. Hello. Haven't posted here for a bit so sorry if this out of place. We filed our EAD and Travel Documents with our I485 and the NOA was 12/20/18 Is it normal to be waiting this long? I don't see any active threads for others by month waiting for similar documents. And I noticed on the uscis website for the National Visa center (where our documents are) it jumped from Processing applications 12/1/2018 to1 March of 2019 in a matter of days Very confused here
