  1. We hadn’t! I was too nervous we’d mess something up by doing that, lol. Our lawyer’s partner said when he found out how close we were to our anniversary he’d considered postponing. I guess I didn’t realize it wouldn’t have been that big of a deal. I’m a worrywart. 🙂 BUT! I got a notification around 9:50pm last night that the card is being produced and today it says case is approved! Wooo hoooo! 🥳🥳
  2. Our interview was this morning! We weren't approved on the spot. I wouldn't say we had a bad experience - not what we were hoping for - but still not bad. Our appointment was for 7:30am. We got there at 7am. Parking out front was no problem with the parking mobile app. There's a lot across the street too that's all day $20 cash. The doors didn't open until about 7:15am. It was easy going through security & check-in then you go upstairs to the 2nd floor. The security guard upstairs was so sweet. We waited until about 8:20am. Our IO was very direct and not chatty. She told us how she would like our documents presented and had us designate who was going to keep getting up to bring stuff to her desk when she asked for it. Identification first, then marriage cert/birth certs, then updated bonafides and anything else we wanted to give. We provided my updated employment info, our 2020 return, joint bank statements (we didn't have a joint account prior), our 2020-2021 lease, updated utilities & memberships, and pictures from Sept 2020 to now. Also handed in I-693. There was no small talk and a lot of silence as she looked through things (mostly organizing new in with old and hole punching? not really looking through the bonafides or anything). She explained things as she went along. She went through the I-485 and said she was going to address me first (petitioner) then my husband (beneficiary). She asked me for our address, if I was no longer with my previous employer, the name and address of my new employer, if I was married before, and asked for our wedding date. Then she asked my husband his full legal name, our address, if he had ever been married before, if he has any biological children (he replied no but I have 2 stepchildren and she asked what are their names), and she asked him my birthday. Then she asked my husband the I-130 questions. He does have an incident from 10 yrs ago at home and we provided all of the documentation court gave us with our package. She skipped over these questions on the I-130 and saved them for last. For the community service and fines under status it says "dealt with". She questioned this and our lawyer's partner said he could only assume this is their verbiage that the requirements were satisfied otherwise it wouldn't say it was dealt with. She said if that wasn't acceptable we would get an RFE in the mail asking for documentation clarifying he did fulfill his requirements. She then said thank you for being so prepared and organized to me and said to our lawyer's partner to only bring them cases like ours.. she said she'd walk us out. As we were walking down the hall, I said "do you mind if I ask a quick question - so we're just waiting to see if we'll get a request for evidence?" She said yes and if it were to go out it'd be today or tomorrow. We were surprised she didn't ask any questions about our relationship, didn't really look through bonafides or talk to us at all.. but we did provide a lot so maybe she felt she didn't need to, especially with the compliment at the end? Kind of confusing. We were out of the building at 9am. Overall I feel she did like us. I'm thinking it shouldn't be an issue getting something saying dealt with means satisfied over here. Our lawyer called to follow up with us and said she feels the IO is wrong and what we provided is acceptable so she thinks we may just get approved but if they want clarifying info, clarifying info they will get lol. If we don't hear anything in 30 days we'll reach out. Our 2 year anniversary is in less than a month so in a way kinda hoping it gets approved after that so he'll get the 10 year instead (I think it'd work that way at least?). We feel pretty confident we're okay! Just more waiting. What else is new, lol.
  3. Sorry I overlooked this somehow! Financial. My husband has a pending job offer. He just said he was afraid of the offer being rescinded as it was taking longer than expected. That was it. They didn’t request anything from us.
  4. Ours is 24 days before our 2nd anniversary and I thought the same but I'm way too much of a nervous Nelly to try and reschedule, lol! Can you update on what you decide to do and how it goes? Just curious.
  5. Wooo hoo!! My husband actually got his EAD combo card in the mail yesterday but we requested to expedite it on 5/27 so no way knowing how it would've went had we not done that. I was pretty shocked when I got the update that interview was scheduled! You can try asking a rep through Emma to see if you can find out the date... it worked for us! I was too impatient to wait for the notice to come and figured it was worth a shot, lol. I'd assume yours will be around the same time! I'm anxious!!! We do have a lawyer! Do you?
  6. Spoke to a rep via Emma: interview is scheduled for Thurs 7/22! (Edited bc I had Tuesday 7/22 which is incorrect- I was looking at June, lol.)
  7. Ahhhh another update! Interview has been scheduled!!!! Now to wait for the notice to find out the date 😊

  9. No update for me. 🤕 Talked to a representative and the only thing he said was as of March 18th USCIS was processing my case.
  10. Awesome! I’m a little annoyed we had to spend $500 for our lawyer to review & send the RFE though lol. Same as Zaraliaya if we had just waited longer within the RFE timeframe we could’ve avoided that. But oh well, it is what it is, I guess!

  12. Hey, so my husband went alone and said it was really simple. There was a line outside, about 5 people ahead of him, and he waited less than 10 minutes to get in. Once inside he said that it only took like 2 mins ha. He handed them the form, they took his picture and scanned his prints, and that was it! Good luck tomorrow!
