Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

My husband (USC) and I (applicant) just had our interview yesterday at Lawrence ASC.

It went smoothly. My husband was called in first with all the paperwork. He showed them the pictures we'd brought and the only documentation they asked him for was our mortgage deed. He was asked about half a dozen basic relationship questions.

Then I was called in, sworn in and asked a few dozen yes/no questions from the I-485. And then the same relationship questions. He then asked for I-693, which I handed over. There was some confusion about the validity of the medical. He didn't like that I'd done it in July 2020. He said it needed to be signed by USCIS within 60 days. I was shocked and said I thought it was good for 2 years. I also said that the deficiency notice says Do NOT mail it in. A fellow VJ member posted on forum that IO was mixed up on the policy. Regardless, the I-693 was accepted. And the IO stated that we'd be approved. We were in/out of the ASC within a... read complete review

Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

I interviewed in Boston USCIS office 2/22/2021 for AOS based on marriage. I and my husband arrived early and went through the security check. We checked in 15min before our appointment time ( If you arrive earlier than that, you will need to wait for check in). We waited for about 70mins until we were called in. Interview was pretty quick and officer was professional. My husband and I were interviewed at the same time. The officer asked me questions first. (My name, date of birth, my parents name, Whether I have citizenship in any other country than my mother country, Do I have any children outside of US, My husband full name, Questions in I-495 Yes or no questions, Why I waited so long to file for AOS, why I quit my previous job). Then he asked me to sign I-485 and I-944 form. He then asked me for I-693 form which he looked at the spot. He then asked questions to my husband. (full name, date of birth, his parent's names, where he works, what kind of job it is) Then he asked about anyt... read complete review

Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

We had an interview at the Boston USCIS two days ago. We were approved on the spot!

We arrived ~15 min before the appointment time. Did the temperature check before walking to the front desk, then presented the interview letter to the front desk receptionist. She asked if we traveled out of state recently and we said no. She wrote a number on the letter, gave it back to us and said have a seat and wait for that number to be called.

We sat in the waiting room probably for 20 min or so (definitely felt longer than that!). There were four interview rooms. When our number was called, we walked toward the room where our immigration officer was waiting, holding the door open for us. He greeted us and asked me (the beneficiary) to come into his office alone while my husband (the petitioner) waited outside.

I walked into the room, and the officer closed the door. After swearing under an oath, I got seated. He asked for a passport and the interview... read complete review

Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

Interview today went very smoothly. We arrived about 15 minutes ahead of schedule, as directed, and security took a few minutes. The agent came and got us about 5 minutes after the interview time, and interviewed us both together. He started off explaining that we had a good case, and that's why he wasn't separating us.

No hard questions, aside from my nerves when he asked for 2019 Tax Transcripts instead of Tax Returns and I didn't have them. He asked some basic questions of each of us (partner's birthday, parents' names) and asked my husband a random selection of the Yes/No questions from the I-485. At the end he had us tell him together about how we met/dated/got married, and there was some laughing and joking around. Then he said "Okay, you're totally married. I think we're done" and said he'd submit the approval on the spot. We got the email notification that the card was being produced within two hours of leaving the appointment.

Tips for Boston office:

Dress business casual. Prefer not to wear a suit.
Try taking public transport. 
If driving in, prepare for $$$ parking.
Multiple garages near building but bad sign directions.
Typically takes us 30 mins to reach office but today all routes had accidents so it took us 1 hour 40 mins. Always account for the unknown. Or get a new yorker partner like me.
You will most likely be separately interviewed. Typically, the petitioner goes in first with all docs and evidences. Boston officers are generally very friendly.
If you have an attorney, the officer can offer you to go in with your spouse instead of going in with your attorney. Our attorney recommended going in with them instead.
Entrance foe visitors is on Cambridge street so try looking for signs or park at Boston food market garage.
When you enter the building, you will be asked to remove belt, shoes and jacket like at an airport TSA. Acc... read complete review
