  1. That's interesting. They rarely ask for originals. As long as 60 days elapse from the last update. Any earlier they might not do anything since you're still within RFE processing time though you're welcome to try.
  2. Don't hold your breath waiting but stay on it. If your status doesn't change in 60 days from the last update, you can call USCIS to place an inquiry. I got a BC RFE back in June and didn't get Case is Ready until 69 days later, and that included calling on the 60th day. Btw you don't have to send an original unless specified.
  3. Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe to get SSN with AOS you would have had to get your EAD approved. Did you get your GC before EAD finished processing? If so, the SSN request probably never went through. You can apply for one at your local SSA -- bring your GC, marriage certificate, and passport.
  4. Update: I-485 approval notice received 10/26 dated same day as interview (10/21). The tracking number was updating back in time and said "Delivered" with the wrong zip code! After much panic and confusion, the green card arrived today after a surprisingly nice call to USPS. 😀 Wishing a happy ending to all!
  5. Thanks, I think that's what I'm confused about -- I thought I had to use my passport no matter what. I'll definitely bring both the passport and GC. So for travel outside the US, the ticket must be in the passport name?
  6. My in-laws are planning to go on vacation with us to the US Virgin Islands next May. We will be flying American Airlines with a layover in Charlotte NC. On VJ I've read that flight tickets, even for domestic travel (which USVI is considered), are to be booked in the passport name. My GC that just got approved will be in my married name. My question is which name should I book the ticket in? I'm not sure if the GC operates the same as the combo card in that you still have to use your passport name on the ticket. I also have the option of changing my passport name to my married name but I don't know how long that would take with all my guarantor candidates in Vancouver (I need their signature).
  7. Status changed to New Card Is Being Produced overnight (dated yesterday) so the IO must have approved after we left (even though she said up to a month)! Best of luck to those still waiting!
  8. It might be a new thing they're doing now, not sure why. My husband said he saw an IO ask someone if their kid (maybe 8 yo?) was old enough to wait out by himself. Since your daughter is so young she might go with mom. Let us know! Aw, I'm the same. I didn't sleep well these past few nights. The anxiety went away the minute we stepped into the building. Being there and seeing other people made me feel better about how the interview was going to go. I think the best advice I could give to your wife is to be honest and not rush to answer. The whole experience was rather anticlimactic for all the stress we felt. Afterwards it's like "wow that was really not worth losing sleep over".
  9. We had our interview this morning. It went pretty well although I was not approved on the spot. We were interviewed separately. I (immigrant) went in first at 7:30. The IO was polite and seemed familiar with our case details. She swore me in, took my photo and fingerprints. Right off the bat she said she was looking for evidence of co-mingling. She asked a few questions about the earlier part of my relationship with my husband: how we met, our first date, when/how I met my husband's family, how the proposal happened. Then we went over the I-485 together, noted my requested amendments and I signed the last page to confirm. She asked more questions like: What is your husband's mother's name? How many siblings does your husband have? What car does your husband have? What activities do you do together? What shows do you watch? What did you have for dinner last night? What's your breakfast? What did your husband get you for your birthday? What are you planning to do for your honeymoon? Are you planning to have children? For some of these answers I was able to show photo evidence. It felt more like an AMA than an interview since we were laughing at some of my answers. We went over some photos and afterwards I gave her the entire photoset. She asked if there were any other documents I'd like to add. I gave her ALL our copies of stuff she didn't already have on file: joint finances, joint health insurance, proofs of address, my husband's ID -- explaining each document as I went. She said to give her a month to make a decision and if there was a RFE (said it didn't seem likely) that they would mail us. She called my husband in at 8:30 and I sat in the waiting area. At that point I realized they were separating almost everyone. 10 minutes later my husband came out and we left. He told me the questions she asked (=same ones I got) and that he could tell she was pretending to sound interested at his answers lol. She also told him to give her a month. I don't know why they separated everyone but it didn't matter to us because we were honest in our answers and they matched. The IO seemed more focused on how we talked about our relationship than the papers. I can understand why since we didn't front load AOS (although we are K1). It was a positive experience overall. Now for more waiting!

  11. Lol totally agree. Rather pointless when it takes just as long as the interview without expedite.
  12. Joining the "EAD approved after interview was scheduled" club. Trick and treat haha.
