    Interview went beautifully and like an hour later, CARD IN PRODUCTION! Yayyyy!
     
    officer was so nice and easy to talk to. He asked us how we met, first date, where was the wedding, how many guests, where have we travelled, where do we live, birth dates, social, previous addresses, work history, very detailed. First time into the US? Which visa? History of entering the leaving the country, port of entry, schools I went to. Extremely detailed but that’s his job. Asked all questions on ineligibility. I will add, my hubby was laid off in December and the officer asked if he still worked at his old job. We told him the truth but he didn’t ask for a new affidavit or anything like that. 
     
    He then looked at our pictures, I had two albums, took like 5-6 pictures and done! He did tell us about the 2 years provision and when I can apply for citizenship and that it may take 2-3 months to get the card. Fairfax office is the best, we talked to some lovely security guards and happy going front desk people. Good luck y’all! I’m glad our journey is over for 2 years!

    Hey everyone,
     
    We had our AOS interview today and everything was fine up to the point where we’re talking nit pickyness. So, the interviewer wants to see my passport with my entry stamps into Japan. I have a new one because the previous one with the entry stamps is expired. There’s no point in carrying an expired passport. Then she wanted to see pictures? I showed her some pictures on our phones, but she wants copies of them. 
     
    Aside from that, she didn’t have a problem approving us provided that we can send those in. Provided us with an evidence send in. I assume this is an RFE. 
     
    What baffles me is that our interviewer didn’t have a paper copy of the K-1 that she says she should have received but has not. The K-1 application has my entry stamp scan in it. 
     
    Anyway, we just send this in and it sounds like an approval. The interviewer didn’t ask very much questions. I guess the annoyance is that what she’s asking for is irrevelvant to an AOS. Wanting to see entry stamps? Pictures I just showed on our phones isn’t good enough? Really? You don’t have the K-1 file?

    Ok so! It went pretty well, the office is nice. Super tight security (take off shoes, belts, everything) make the left before the office to get to the parking garage ($7). I wouldn’t get there very early because we had to wait a while. So like 10 min before you appt should be fine.  Interviewer was nice, very businesslike.  
     
      PD July 09, 2018 marriage based AOS from B2 visa from Costa Rica.  I prepared the whole application without a lawyer. 
    I think it went well, interviewer asked all of the questions of eligibility (terrorist, drugs etc) to my husband (beneficiary).  He ask him my name and his children’s names., last entrance to the US. Then he asked me my husband’s name and birthday, place of birth, wedding date.  I added some more evidence that I didn’t have when we applied (joint accounts, etc).  
    He then said we had a beautiful family (we have a 1 year old who we brought with us).  But that it would be 1 day to 120 days to wait for approval or intent to deny 😨 and that he had to do a final background check and approval from his supervisor.  
    So no real closure   We asked if he thought he was recommending us for approval and he said he cannot answer that and needs to review the file.

    So my interview was last week.  Guess it is time to report back how it went: 
     
    There is a parking garage right behind the building, $7.  One can also take the metro, Orange Line.  Unlike with the place where they do the biometrics appointments, here one has to go through airport level security to get in, even take one's shoes off.  I'd not have worn my winter boots if I had known that.  No coffee allowed inside, unfortunately. 
     
    Inside there is a government standard waiting area with water fountains, rest rooms, and TV screens.  They were showing HGTV, which made for a pleasant distraction.  Another way to pass the time is people-watching with one's spouse, especially playing spot-the-lawyer.  You can also play on your phone, despite all the signs prohibiting the use of electronic devices.  Nobody seems to care, and I spotted one kindle and several phones out in the open.
     
    We had to wait about 40 minutes beyond our appointed time.  However, that does not seem to be normal, as our officer apologized and even attempted some kind of vague explanation.  The interview itself was short and almost pleasant.  There was only one real question ("How did you meet?").  The rest of the time was spent rattling through the potential ineligibilities ("Did you ever participate in genocide?  Do you plan to overthrow the U.S. government? …") and taking fingerprints and a photo again.  Our officer didn't even ask for additional supporting evidence, but he took copies when we offered them.  He had to check with his supervisor, otherwise he would have approved us on the spot.  I was allowed to keep my EAD card. 
     
    All in all I felt that this was a bit of a waste of time, both for the officer and for us.  Under the old rules we would probably have been approved without an interview.

    Well as someone whos going through this process LEGALLY. I get so upset reading your posts. Ive been waiting almost 1 year to move legally to the US (and other people wait even longer than that). Since my K1 petition ive been to the US 3 times and would have had the chance to just marry and adjust my status, BUT i didnt do it because i wanted to do it the right way and didnt want to break laws.
    People like you make immigrating AND visiting the US so much harder, because the officers think "well another one thats just gonna stay here illegaly". 
    I really really hope someone can report you and your family since you put your city, state and original country on here. 
     
    You get upset and rude because people tell you, what youre doing is against the law and also not allowed on this vj forum, so childish honestly.
