Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

So, today was our Green Card Interview at the Philadelphia Field Office. I can truly say that for it to take as long as it did to get to this point from our filing date, this was the most QUICKEST and EASIEST part of the whole process!!!

Our interview was scheduled for 10:45am, we arrived at 10:15-10:20am. There's a parking lot across the street from the building that has a flat rate of $20 for all day parking which sucked because we weren't going to be there all day but it was either that or having my husband to keep running downstairs to feed the meter. Anyway, we went through security (cell phones are allowed inside the building just have to keep them on silent) but no food or drink (glad I had a big breakfast as I'm almost 9 months pregnant and would have been starving and grouchy if I didn't). Checked in at the front desk with the interview notice and driver's licenses, and was told to go to the 2nd floor and sit close to door 3.

It was a lot of... read complete review

Review Topic: General Review

Interview went much faster and easier than expected. I arrived just on time, went through the security line and I didn't wait long before my name was called. The interviewer was a lady...very pleasant. First she asked us for our IDs (passport and government issued), then she asked us a heap of questions about our relationship, no usual questions. How, when and where we met, when he proposed, when and where we got married, when we moved, whether I was working in the US(which I am not currently, but I did get an employment parole card allowing me to travel/work if I wanted to until I receive my GC). She also went through all the criminal questions they ask on the DS160 with me... The entire time, my husband(petitioner) was in the same room with me, we were never separated thankfully.

Then she requested for copies of my Evidence of marriage and my husband's most recent tax return. I had taken my whole boat load of paperwork with me... everything I ever filed and more.... s... read complete review

Interview Questions:

We had a lawyer with us, the interviewer and his assistant.
The whole interview process took about 1 hour and the session was taped.
We were separated during the interview.

He asked us for our ID and verified our names, country of birth and age. "Where do I work? Where does my partner work? Tell me about when you guys met? where? And what did you do the first day? Who proposed to whom and when? Why did you decide to get married? When did I move in with my partner? Where I lived when we first met? Had he been to my place before? He cross checked my answer with my partners when asked what kind of apartment we lived in. Do we have our relationship public on Facebook?" (i did not). He then asked, "why not?" (i replied i had my status as married only but did not display partners name). He asked me to prove it. I whipped out my phone and showed him. He verified my marital status and noticed my taste of music in my profile and... read complete review

Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

Our interview was on 11/15/2018 at 10:45am.First we had to show our appointment letter to the officer then had to go through security check. After that we went to the Front Desk. We were told to go to the second floor and wait at door number 1. We waited for 35 minutes. Then we were called at door 2. The interviewer immediately asked if we needed an translator. We said, no.Then we walked to his office and we had to swear we would tell the truth and he took my fingerprints and photo.

The interview lasted about 20 minutes. First he asked if we had any additional evidence to submit then asked biographical questions from I-485 from both of us. After that he asked about 10 questions from the Yes/No questions of I-485. Then he asked if I had another passport and if I had been in the USA previously and what I worked now. Then he asked my husband how we had met, what he works and if he has any kids. At the end he said he had found everything all right with our paperwork and ... read complete review
