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

Our interview did not go well, felt hostility from the very moment we met our officer in the waiting room.

Our IO was great, he was very cheerful and nice. Ask us simple questions, when we got married, how we met, what vacation this picture was taken at, then we spoke about our hiking spot that turns out he also goes there with his dog. We chatted for 10 min and got approved on the spots

Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

Our initial interview was postponed due to covid19.
This time, the interview notice said not to be early and to wear masks otherwise they won't allow entry. We reached 30 mins earlier. Our USCIS interview agent was friendly. He asked us to show - Driving license, passports, birth certificates. Then he went through the file to see if any document is missing. He checked our original application, asked if anything has been changed. He checked our i-864, medical, address, photos, and other documents submitted already. He asked us to show the financial documents with both our names. We submitted our joint savings account, credit card statements with both our names, 2019 joint tax. He also asked to show the photo album and selected 10 photos from there. Then he asked us questions like when/how did we meet, when did we decide to get married, how long was the courtship period, where have we traveled after marriage. Then he said our case looks very straightforward and that's all. Over... read complete review

Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

Interview was scheduled for 1PM.
Expected long lines for security, arrived early as per other advises, but the side entry was open, so we were the only ones there. Less than a minute.
Went up the elevator, 12:30. Officer greeted us at the elevator hall, checked the letter and ID's, directed us.
Took maybe 5mins to wait at the window. Got seated and were told to wait.
1:05PM Officer came out and called our names.
He seemed very serious and not really approachable. Wouldn't even shake hands, so right of the bat had bad vibes.
Asked to swear to say the truth, then for Birth Certificates, Passports, Marriage Certificates right of the bat once we sat down. He went through all of them.
Then asked the relationship questions. How did we meet, where did we meet, when did we start dating, when and where proposed, when got married, where the petitioner works, what does he do there, then same question about the beneficiary. Asked petitioner abo... read complete review
