  1. My interview letter came in the mail within a week from the online status update. Just to be sure, you can call the USCIS customer service and try to find out about the mail.
  2. Sorry to hear that it took you so long !! "Case Is Ready To Be Scheduled For An Interview" means the NBC processed your application and they have sent it to your local office which is Detroit field office for Michiganders. Depending on the work load and availability of the interview slots, they would schedule your interview. And will mail the appointment letter to you along with the online update. Like you said it can vary between weeks to months to get it scheduled. In my case it took about 2 months to get it scheduled after the online notification "Case Is Ready To Be Scheduled For An Interview". I am sorry about the long wait !! I wish you all the best and hopefully yours gets scheduled soon.
  3. Actually if it takes more time to issue your greencard then they will issue the EAD/AP when they are due to be issued, Even after your interview is conducted. But I am praying for you that you receive your approval letters sometime this week and greencard next week.
  4. Wow that was a very long interview and sounds so intense. I am hoping the outcome of this interview is positive. ๐Ÿคž If you dont mind sharing with us, what were the questions asked ?? Other than the yes/no questions from the form I-485. And also did the interviewer said anything negative or any comments ?? Just wanted to see why it was a very long interview.
  5. Congratulations on getting your interview scheduled. For me the interview date was around 40 days from the day online status changed to "Interview was scheduled". So it might be sometime in December first week.
  6. @ttjewell i got my card in the mail yesterday morning. I havent checked it until late last night. The USCIS never gave me any tracking or anything just the card was in mail. It took 6 days for the card to arrive from the date of interview. Thank you and good luck with your interview.
  7. @ttjewell the Officer told me 7 working days. So I am expecting the card in the next couple of days. Online status says "card is mailed to me" but no tracking number yet. So i am hoping by end of this week. Yeah if you are travelling in a week or two after the interview, the IO can place a stamp on the passport. Because i wasnt travelling, I didnt get one. Good Luck with your Interview
  8. Congratulations @ttjewell Seems like Detroit office has less number of applicants for interviews. I had my interview successfully done last week after a 5 month's wait. So now the wait time is 3 months. That is very good news. My guess would be that the interview date usually is scheduled 36-40 days from the notice of interview letter date. Let's hope your interview gets scheduled sooner than that. Good Luck ๐Ÿ‘ Thank you very much
  9. I came to know about the "Evolution of Relationship Letter" in internet and thought it would be a great idea. And Indeed it was. Because I have that letter already included in my AOS packet, I didn't get any of those questions. But Detroit office appears to be pretty relaxed and officers are very nice. Unless we have something fishy going on in the application, you should be very good there. the IO just verified my birth details and my parents names and when i came to the USA for the first time and what jobs I did. Whether I broke any laws and the usual I-485 YES/NO questions. And she asked about my baby and my wife and i discussed about her. Other than that it was pretty cool and relaxed. I was so nervous before getting called for the interview but once my wife and I entered the IO's office, we are pretty relaxed and everything was set. I wish you good luck with your interview. 11:20AM seems to be a good time slot, because right after they are done with our interview, its their lunch time. So they would be in a hurry to finish it up soon. I am hoping your interview would be as easy as mine if not easier and more relaxed. What day you have the interview BTW ???
  10. You are most welcome My wife's letter is a good combination of facts and emotions and lucky for us the IO is also a middle aged lady who might have understood the letter with a woman's perspective. LOL ๐Ÿ˜Š
  11. Thank you I am sorry you have to wait for such a long time. Hopefully you hear some good news very soon. ๐Ÿคž
  12. The Evolution of Relationship letter is compiled and signed by my wife. She described how we met, how our dates went on and how our relationship developed into a romantic relationship and how it lead to marriage and all. What are the factors which led her to believe that I am the right guy for her. And what our future plans are. I didn't adjust from K-1 as entered the U.S. as a student 8 Years ago and then adjusted my status to H1B and then now to a permanent resident status. Good luck with your letter. Please let me know if you have any questions about writing that letter, I would be more than happy to help ๐Ÿ˜€
  13. We had our AOS interview yesterday at the Detroit Field office and we got approved on the Spot . Our appointment is at 11:20AM and we reached there and passed through the security around 11:00. And we waited in the large waiting area for about 40 minutes until the Office called my name for the interview. The IO is a very sweet middle aged white lady and she appeared to have gone through my application thoroughly and the moment we walked into her office, she said she doesn't have any questions about the validity of my marriage and she just need to verify some basic information and she would approve my green-card. Everything went very smooth. She just verified the stuff on the forms like my DOB, parents names, current address and when i came into US, what visa statuses i had and so on. And then the mandatory YES/NO questions from form I-485. And then she asked my wife if its her signature on the forms and she checked with me about my signatures as well. The interview lasted for about 15 or 20 minutes and at the end, she said she just approved the Green-card and she ordered for the card. I requested to see if she can place the I-551 stamp on my passport but she said it's only required if I am travelling within the next one or two weeks outside the USA. So I didn't get a stamp on my passport. She explained about the conditional residency and we need to apply for ROC in about 21 months and made us sign a document referring to the 2 year conditional residency and removal of conditions. And we thanked the Immigration officer for her help and support and she walked us out to the waiting area and we thanked her and said good bye for now. So overall it was a great experience and very easy than i expected. The IO did't even ask for any originals or any documents. We brought with us a whole bunch of documents and 4 albums of pictures. But she did't even look at them. So I believe a strong application with good explanation letter about evolution of relationship helped us alot. The IO even commented it to my wife who wrote the "Evolution of relationship letter" that she loved how my wife explained everything in her letter addressing the officer. I thank you all the VJ filers for their valuable support and advice they gave me through this AOS journey and I wish you all the very best and hoping for your AOS to go as smoothly as possible. ๐Ÿ˜
