Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

We received the letter of appointment for AOS a month before the set date of the interview, so we were given ample time to prepare for the much awaited interview At the back of the letter are the things needed to take with you for the interview.
Enumerated are the things we prepared for our interview:
1. Up to date Medical Examination (med. exam. are good for only a year, so better check the date you first submit your med exam to them).
2. Affidavit of support (which we submitted already when we applied for the adjustment of status, so no need for that anymore.)
-unless, if you have new FEDERAL TAX INCOME statements, W2 those stuff, or if you are working now, and is receiving paychecks, better submit those as an update to your file.
3. EAD, AP and SSN
4. Original Documents of our Marriage Certificate, our Birth Certificates, Naturalization Certificate (citizenship)...I mean all the certificates you submitted from your ... read complete review

Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

Arrived 10am for 10:45 interview. Went through security, checked in, and waited with maybe 3 individuals/couples before us. Got called after a short wait, maybe around 10:35. Followed officer to office, stood to take an oath, sat down. First asked to submit I-693 medical forms. Officer then directed questions to my USC wife, confirming many of the personal details on her portion of the forms. When my wife disclosed that she had changed her job, I quickly found the employer letter and gave it to the officer. Next I was asked many of the questions from my part of the form: personal details and yes/no questions. The officer asked where and when we first met, when we started dating. When the officer asked me if I have any children, I gestured towards my wife and said we have one on the way. The officer congratulated us while I produced a letter from the OBGYN confirming the pregnancy, which the officer kept. At the end, the officer said things looked good and they should be able to approve... read complete review

Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

Our case handler for change of status was same guy who took Sue's biometrics 4 months prior. He glanced at our paperwork, then told us we were not the "kind of people I will be dealing with the rest of the day". So he told us he would ask a couple of routine questions, then send us on our way and we can expect her green card in 3-6 weeks. So NO INTERVIEW!! We thank Mr. Merlach for his friendly and speedy processing.

Review Topic: Naturalization

Though I've had to deal with the Buffalo office a few times, all of which have been great, I'll focus on the last visit - a naturalization interview...

I had an early afternoon interview time, and got to the office probably about 30 minutes early. Got through security, checked in at the counter (where they had some difficulty getting fingerprints - Buffalo in December...), and barely had a chance to make a quick trip to the bathroom before I was called in. IO stated that the previous interviewee was a no-show, so she was going to take me in right away.

Very pleasant interview, and within about 10 minutes I had my decision in front of me, along with an oath ceremony letter in hand. Walked out back to the lobby, where my wife was a little concerned about how quickly I was back, thinking that there was something going on. She later complained that she had barely had a chance to get settled in - but in any case, we ended up walking out of the office probab... read complete review

Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

My new husband and I just returned from Buffalo (we are about 3 hours away near Ithaca) for our Green Card interview. We knew it would be brief, and were disappointed there wasn't a Syracuse option, but attended anyway. The whole interview took about 10 minutes. 50 minutes from entry to exit.

At 12 o clock we walked in half an hour early to get started. Security took all our stuff and looked at the appointment letter. They told us to check in at the first booth. There was 3 people in front of us, the line was quick. They checked my appointment letter and took my photo (not his) and both my index finger prints. The lady told us to sit and wait for us to be called. About 10 minutes later they started calling ticket numbers and my husband went up to make sure we didn't miss getting a ticket (nobody was going up for the first number called). She said no, by name, and we waited some more.

After about 25 minutes more of waiting (we were there pretty early) a ma... read complete review
