Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

We had our AOS interview at 9AM and we were out by 9.20AM. Due to COVID-19 distancing protocol interviewees were let inside into the waiting area exactly at their appointment time.

We were surprised to find TSA level security scanning, which seems in line considering it is a federal facility. Routine, but just didn't expect that earlier.

At the interview, the officer had our 485 and 130 with him and was nice to talk to. He tried to break the ice a couple of time to make us feel at ease, I guess he could read my wife and were a little stressed. After the usual questions he verified that the information in the 130 and 485 about job and residency etc. were still correct. Since my wife and I both changed employers in the meantime, he made those corrections in the form, not sure if it had any significance but could be used to just double check before approving the case. Oh and I also offered to submit a new I864 (affidavit of support) with the updated info abou... read complete review

Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

Lined up by the front door 15 minutes prior to appointment time, were brought into the lobby two couples/groups at a time for ID and appointment letter review by security guard. Continued on to security line, then to check in desk where we were given additional documents (signature page, interpreter form, lawyer form) and then escorted to the interview location.
Interviews were held over video chat on iPads at individual booths arranged within a larger space. Interviewing officer asked us to hold up the documents we brought in front of the camera, but then we placed them in an envelope provided, presumably for closer review since it was difficult to read the documents over video chat. When reviewing documentation of my wife's beneficiary status on my retirement and investment accounts, we were surprised that he asked if the documentation included the value of those accounts, which it did not. He also asked about the cost of our monthly rent on our jointly leased house. His othe... read complete review

Review Topic: General Review

We weren't really asked a lot of questions. We have been together for over 8 years and have 3 kids together, so the evidence must have spoken for itself. The IO asked my wife (petitioner) some basic questions like name, DOB, place of birth. , when we got married...that's it.



The IO then asked for my divorce decree from my last marriage, that I had already provided a copy of in the application -- I told her I only had the original but I'd be happy to part ways with it if she couldn't locate the copy in the petition . Anyway, she was able to find it.. She asked about my current employer/ H1b status a bit -- asked about my worksite. She finally asked how many children we have together, at which point she realized we had 3 children together and not from any other marriage. At that point we could tell she was convinced of the bonafide relationship and then she asked the formality "have you ever done x" questions.

Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

Our original interview was scheduled for March 19,2020 and 2 days prior they called us to inform that the offices were closing and postponing face to face contact until further notice. We were rescheduled about 4 and a half months later with the new date; August 26, 2020 (the day before my husbands birthday! :O).

We were pretty well prepared at this point to be honest but still nervous because that's just who we are as people. I brought additional paystubs and our joint tax return as well as more photos of recent things we'd done together (though there weren't that many new places to go with the quarantine and all).

We were asked to wait outside at tape marking the 6 foot distances along the building while people filed in to the security check in. We went to the right for the interview. It wasn't clearly labeled or signed or anything so I had to ask which direction was which. The waiting room had 3 or 4 of the rows of chairs pushed against the windows and ... read complete review

Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

It was fairly simple and quick. Because my wife's English was very limited, I hired an interpreter who has done this at many interviews. Questions were mostly the same as on the application: Name, address, are you a sex trafficer etc.!!! Her 16 year old daughter was also there. The interviewer asked her very little. I had lots of updated financial information, photos, etc. but the interviewer didn't ask for any of it.
