Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

Getting to the address, finding parking and getting into the building was all very easy. We were sitting in the waiting room 20 minutes before our appointment. Interview was scheduled for 11:35 and we were called around ten minutes after that. Officer was polite, though not very talkative. She swore us in, reviewed our original birth certificates, marriage licence, and passport. She spent some time reviewing my application, silently. She asked us for evidence that the relationship was still bona fide. We submitted joint tax return, documents that show shared address, shared health insurance, telephone bill, etc. (These were all new documents that we had since we submitted the application, so make sure you bring those). She spent quite a bit of time looking at my passport and the application. She didn't say anything. I was sooooo nervous! Then, she asked me the Yes/no questions that appear on the I-485 form about previous crimes, convictions, etc. Then said she would need to review the... read complete review

Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

When you enter the building, there is an officer that ask if you have an appointment as soon as you walk in, we showed our appointment paper and he said to we're clear to enter the building and to speak to the front desk of where to go, we lined up through security and it's similar as airport security when you walk through. After we had passed the front desk was directly in front of us.

My wife had asked the front desk where to go. She told us we have to go to the second floor and wait by door 2.

We went upstairs and it was a pretty crowded waiting room with 3 different doors. We sat by door 2 and we waited for about 20-25 minutes and we were called by door 3 instead (door 2 was pretty busy and we hardly saw anyone come out).

We were called and confirmed with the USCIS interviewer if it was my last name and she replied yes and no worries.

We had sworn to tell the truth before need had in sat in the office and the interview... 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 appointment was at the Philadelphia field office at 9am, we arrived at the office at around 8:15am, went through security and were directed to the second floor. We waited for about 45 minutes upstairs, and then were called into door number 2.

Our immigration officer was very nice, he had us raise our right hand and swear to tell the truth, which we did. He then made us feel immediately at ease with personal stories about his wife, we laughed and joked for a couple of minutes before he asked how we met - we told him, he then asked a few questions from AOS, then he said our paperwork looks good and asked if we had anything we would like to submit. We took a lot of evidence, so just handed him the folder and let him choose what he wanted to see. He only looked at photos and our joint checking statement, then he said that he will approve us and we'll receive the green card within two weeks.

That was it, very smooth and pleasant experience!

Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

The process was fairly straightforward. We arrived right on time for the interview. Security escorted us through and directed us to the waiting area. The waiting room was a large open space with various doors around the entire room. We handed our paperwork to an attendant at the desk and were asked to wait outside a specific door. After about 10 minutes, an officer called our names. We were directed through the door and a few hallways until we entered the room. We were sworn in, and then it became pretty casual. He asked us how we met one another, and we talked about how we met by working at Disney. After that, the officer simply mentioned that he would go through our biographical information to verify that it was all correct. He then congratulated us and told us we'd receive an approval in the mail. I received an update the same day through the case status app. Very straightforward process and our officer was incredibly kind!
