    As I expected, i got a 2 year green card cause that’s the rule if you haven’t been married for two years when a decision has been made in a case. Exceptions to evidence would be children born to marriages, usually that’s the most common exception and sometimes not event then. I read of a case where they were one month shy of their second year anniversary and they still gave them a 2 year gc but hey the important thing is to have the green card!!its a total game changer!!

    Hey guys. Wanted to share some info that I found to be helpful. So our status changed to "Card was mailed to me." However there was no tracking number. I found out that there is a way to talk to an agent through live chat. You basically go to the USCIS site and go to the chat with EMMA. Then type in talk to live representative and she connects you with one. The representative was able to get me our tracking number. Seems like our card should be delivered by 10/4/19.

    Never thought the day would come! We had our AOS interview yesterday at the Queens office in Federal Plaza (though we live in Manhattan). We filed AOS mid May 2018. The process went smoothly. She asked us very few questions: How did we meet? Where have we traveled recently? Then asked my husband (beneficiary) if he’s ever committed any crimes. That was it. It lasted about 10 minutes and we waiting an hour after our scheduled time to go in to the interview. The interviewer was great- professional and easy going.
     
    The only thing that caught me off guard was that she told us we were approved, but she was waiting for more paper work to arrive from other offices on our case before approving and we should receive the GC within 30 days. She said it might be that the EAD renewal application hasn’t arrived for her to look over yet. Hoping this doesn’t cause any trouble. I’ll post any updates on this in case it helps anyone else. Case status is now “Interview Was Completed and My Case Must Be Reviewed” 
     
    Good luck to everyone waiting!

    My dear VS NYC friends,
    LONG POST ALERT 🚨 
     
    We had finally had our aos interview yesterday so i will share my experience for reference. Our appointment was at 1:30pm, Brooklyn field office. We arrived at the waiting area at about 12:55pm, we made the line to give up the notice and get the turn ticket (they call you by ticket, not by name and they don’t call you in order of number either). Fun fact: lady at the booth asked me if i was the attorney 🤣 (dressed for success i guess 🤣) i told her i was just the beneficiary and she said oh, ok.
     
    We waited about 20-25 minutes maybe but we were called in fairly on time. The IO was very nice and courteous walking us over to her office, she swore us in and asked me to sit by the camera, took my fingerprints and pictures, asked us if we had any additional joint documents to bring em forward and put them on her desk and instructed us that she was going to start asking the questions to my husband (petitioner) and for me to put the documents on the desk while she asked away, we complied and she then said “omg i love how you put the files together!” And my hubby said “yup, she’s the organizer!” and she laughed and immediately started asking questions.
    They asked my husband all the questions about how and when we met, where we went on our first date, how long we dated before we got married, when and how we decided to get married and why, asked about our living arrangements, trips with dates, if he had been married before, if he had kids, pets, where I worked (my husband did a great job responding to the questions without missing a beat as she went 👌🏽). Then (after the organizer bit) she started asking me questions, she asked if ive been married before or my husband, if i had kids or if he had kids, asked about pets how many and what were they lol, asked about insurance, bank accounts and what banks, asked about our bofa account which was originally just mine and when I opened it (2011 while i was here visiting) and so she asked if i added him and i said yes and I believe i added him before or after we were married she said ok good, asked about where he worked, told him he got a new job literally two days before the interview and she stated that those are good jobs, joked a little and then started asking me the aos yes/no, asked my husband to take 8 pictures (were we are in groups) out of the (handmade by moi album) and he couldn’t figure it out so i helped him get em out while responding to the rest of the questions, she then had me sign the aos form, thanked us and stated that a decision would be made in about 3 weeks but that I would get an email notification first and whatever decision made by mail after, walked us out and that was it.
    Fun fact#2 my ENTIRE immigration file was on her desk because i saw a picture of one of my visas from 2005 (I assumed she purposely left it there so i knew they had everything lol).
    Fun fact#3 the whole interview took less than 15 minutes 🙃 but it was thorough as heck
    At about 3:50am today i got the email about new card being produced 😭😭😭
    I’m assuming it’s a 2 year GC but my dad also told me the IO has the power to approve it for 10 years at their discretion (that would be awesome!!!) I’ll let you guys know!!!!
    i had my tears of joy meltdown this morning when I saw that email 🤧 but this part of the ordeal is over for now friends 🙏🏽Good luck to all of you still waiting, go over prepared when it comes to paperwork, more is always better and be organized, they’ll appreciate it!!!
    I will later show you how I organized everything for reference!!
    Good luck and thank you for your support and your help throughout this process ♥️

    Hello everyone,
    We had our interview today at Federal Plaza, Brooklyn field office.
    We were not sure if we are going to have an interview, because we got 2 interview notices and one cancellation letter in the same mail on August 12th. Our lawyer said we still should go, sometimes their system isn’t in sync so maybe there is no cancellation! And if you are no show your case is automatically denied!!!!! If the case is here they will conduct the interview. And so we are so glad he told us to go, he was right, WE HAD THE INTERVIEW!!!!
    We got there  45min early (left 15 to security check downstairs). Got upstairs and asked for a number 30 minutes before the scheduled appointment . (We were like if they give us a number we have an interview or they send us home and say they will notice us about the new interview date) And so we got a number and sit and waited:)
    A very nice officer came. He said feel free to correct the significant other if didn’t give the right answer. I was surprised he asked mostly my husband (the petitioner) Asked how we met and when. How the proposal happened. When did we get married (my husband was so nervous he said the wrong day -2 days😅) When (me) the beneficiary arrived to the country(he didn’t give the right answer either 😅)What is his job and income. What’s my job. Asked me my husband’s work schedule. What time he got home yesterday. Why we waited so long to file the application after our wedding. Asked about our living together since when. We gave lease copies. Also asked for original birth certificates to look at didn’t take the copies I made. Passport copy of beneficiary (me) Also asked to put out everything what we have joint documentation and pictures. We made a word document with photos in time order. Also we take regular photos with us but he preferred the presentation what we made. He kept that one. Also we went through the questions on the I-130 with the unlawful things but obviously I have never done anything like that. 
    At the end he said he finds everything in order and thanked we came so prepared and he APPROVED THE CASE!!! Expect the card in 2-3 weeks.
     
     
    SO PLEASE EVERYBODY WHO GOT INTERVIEW NOTICE AND GOT CANCELLATION LETTER STILL GO TO THE INTERVIEW! Never know if it is really cancelled. In the worst case you get a stamp on your paper that you were there and you have to wait for the rescheduled appointment. But you won’t get denied because you missed the interview.
     
    Wish everybody the best of luck🤞🤞🤞 It’s such a relief to be done with it. All the stress and waiting. (Sorry for the long post, I think someone can have some use of this info)

    Afternoon All,
    just a quick update on our status.. today was our interview @ 1pm, we arrived at 12:15 and was called in around 1:15. We walked into the officers office where we were told not to sit until we agree to tell the truth . Then we sat down and the officer said at this time he will Invite us to give any additional evidence and supporting documents to show we have an ongoing marriage. We presented pictures of the last year together at various times, bank statements, car insurance, health insurance, life insurance showing my beneficiaries. He then asked us to tell him about our relationship/ marriage. When we met, got engaged and married. How was our wedding day. Who attended was it a big ceremony or little. He then took the pictures and asked us to explain who was in them and what was the event or location. He also went over the yes and no questions that were on the application.He then advised that everything looked great and he’s approving our application to allow 3 weeks to get the card in the mail. He then asked if we have any questions. Then told us to have a nice day and congrats total time of interview was approximately 15-20 minutes . 🎉🍾 thank you god this chapter is over for now. To all that’s waiting hang in there your day is near. ... sorry for any grammatical errors just me typing excitedly while on the way home.

    Hi folks ,
    I don’t know how to describe our interview experience . It was weird for me . This morning At 8h45 everything was completed knowing that our interview was scheduled at 8h30 . It was so simple that we had the doubt that our application would be disapproved . We were called 10 minutes before the scheduled time. The lady was young she had us seated  without even making a vow . She asked for our ID s then she started checking the application. After that she asked if we had joined documents we gave them the bills and the lease but not the photos though they were with us ( we thought she would ask us for them separately ). For the questions , my hubby (applicant) was the one who was asked more questions . I was asked just 3 simple quick questions (it was wasn’t even about our relationship e.g. does he have children , why we waited that period to apply for the ajustement of status , does he work?) . For him , it was about the yes or no questions that you talked about and about my work  and studies. She wasn’t even looking at us too much she was focusing on the documents . Finally she told us that we would receive a letter ( either approval or disapproval ) in 180 days 😰😰 that was the first shocking news and she didn’t even tell us I’d it was approved or not . So I m still not relieved . I thought my mind would gain some rest today but We still have to resist the battle . We re now sinking in doubts of being disapproved because of the way the interview was conducted .  That was the experience 
    .............
    and now just checked the status, which I didn't expect to change , to find it “Interview was completed and my case must be reviewed “ 
    please folks if you had the same experience or know someone with the same one just share !
    I thought the battle would came to an end today but there will still be more thinking , stress , waiting ....🙄
    Thanks

    @Dee28 Hey so I am Rockland based, we are right next to Westchester County so our FO is Manhattan. My case hasn't been rerouted yet. Our Congress Woman is Nita Lowey. I am more than willing to drive all the way up to Albany for an interview if it gets me one sooner. Really hoping it comes over the next few weeks.
