Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

Marriage based AOS. Easy to find, the admin staff were nice and gave clear instructions, the wait was around 1hr and the waiting room wasn't crowded/noisy. The interviewer was blunt but not mean, and asked relatively simple questions, mainly things she could verify from the submitted documentation (beneficiary's DOB, parents' names) and relationship history. The main issue was to do with completeness of original documentation, but no RFE was issued. Interview was 2/11, case fully approved by 3/7 and just waiting for card to be mailed.

Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

Appointment was at 2pm, and we arrive 5 minutes earlier.
Waited about one and a half hours in the waiting room (Actually they closed at 4pm, but promised to finish interviewing everyone in the room by the day).
Around 3:40pm, we were called by Officer Orlando.

The interview went very smooth. It lasted less than 20 minutes. No difficult questions. No documents were taken.
After we took the vow, Officer Orlando introduced himself and explained his process.
First he checked our identity, citizenship, and current job/status. We were asked to present our passports, birth certificates, marriage certificate, and my spouse's naturalization certificate.
Then we presented our materials (joint residency/joint finances/joint ownership, photos, records for joint trips). He appreciated that our materials were very organized, which made easy for him to scan and make decision. He didn't ask anything about our relationship, maybe because he thought ou... read complete review

Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

It took 430 days from our priority date to get the "interview was scheduled" notice via the status checker. Our PD was 12/09/2019, and we got the interview notice on 02/11/2021.

To prepare, we organized a binder with sub-sections for each category of evidence. We also prepared a small photo album.

On the day of the interview, we arrived to the USCIS building 20 minutes before our interview time. The security guards were slightly rude, but the greeter once you get past security was very friendly. We checked in at the Adjustment of Status window by handing the person our interview notice. We waited about 40 minutes in the lobby (where seating was tough to find due to Covid-19 social distancing restrictions) before we were called in by our officer.

Once he called us in, he asked us about our recent trip abroad, which I guess he could see on his computer. We sat down, he asked us for some basic documents (original marriage certificate and benefi... read complete review
