Congrats to everybody who has received an update in their case! For me, everything happened so quickly after I applied for the EAD renewal in early October. On Oct 14, I received a letter saying that my case was scheduled for an interview on Nov 3rd. We had the interview at the Houston field office and our experience was a good one. The IO was nice, she went through our files (the ones we originally submitted) before asking any questions. She asked if we wanted to submit additional evidence and I gave her a file full of more pictures, call logs, updated joint bank statements, car insurance, home insurance, etc. Then she asked my husband his full name, DOB, other info about himself, and if the signatures on the forms were his. Also asked if he had petitioned for is previous wife and he said no. Then she asked me my full name, DOB, the type of visa I had prior to applying for a green card (E2) and why, etc. She also asked how we met, and then a little chit chat with my husband about how he served in the army, etc. She told me congratulations, you've been approved and like half an hour later I received updates from USCIS that my card had been approved and was ordered. Then a bunch of other updates and yesterday, they notified me that the card had been picked up by USPS, so I'm expecting it early next week 🤩.
To those who have not received any updates, don't lose faith! I hope everything happens as fast for you too. I heard Houston is one of the busiest offices and I had been waiting since March when my interview was cancelled due to Covid... right when I started losing hope, I received the interview notice! so hang in there and best of luck!
