Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

The USCIS Case Officer was incredibly polite and even stamped the I-551 in our passport without an Infopass appointment because we were traveling the next day. Questions were very straightforward and a married couple who know each other even reasonably well would not have a problem convincing the officer that the marriage is bona fide.

My only complaint is the delay from a scheduling perspective. The case was in the ready to be scheduled status for more than 15 months before the interview itself was scheduled with the USCIS field office. The other issue is that although we arrived 30 minutes early, there was a 45 minute delay between the scheduled interview time and the actual interview time.

Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

We had our interview at the Seattle field office! Here's a breakdown of our experience.

Preparation:
Our lawyer had thankfully advised us to get a new I-693 (civil surgeon exam) completed beforehand, which was excellent advice as ours indeed turned out to be expired. If we hadn't had it on hand, we would've received a RFE. (I'd suggest to anyone applying to adjust status, check out the updated USCIS rules regarding the civil surgeon exam. I believe it is, if your I-693 was completed 60 or more days before you submitted your package to USCIS, then the I-693 is only good for 1 year; if the I-693 was completed 60 or less days before submission of package, it's good for 2 years. Unfortunately we had mine done in November 2017 and submitted February 2018, so it was outside the window & we needed to redo. But I'm glad we did!

We made the mistake of working the day before our exam, so we ended up staying up until 4 am copying documents and assembling them... read complete review

Review Topic: Walk-in Filing

Got an appointment date/time for biometrics but it was right in the middle of a very important event I had planned, and rescheduling would've probably been missed too due to going on honeymoon...!

So tried my luck going in the Thursday before, parked ($8, unfortunately), and got fingerprints/photograph all completed within about 70 minutes. Pretty pleased!

Also, the appointment letter said "NO CELLPHONES" but clearer instructions inside the office states that cell phones are actually permitted in the building/general waiting area, though obviously no photos/video and no phone calls/using them whilst speaking to immigration personnel. Wish I'd known that before leaving mine in the car; would've made the 70 minutes go slightly quicker!

Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

We had an 8:15am interview and checked in around 7:50am or so.

As I've read many times, when you then go upstairs, TURN RIGHT, and sit on that side. I can't see any way that you would hear your number being called if you were on the other side.
They were running a little late, we were called in around 8:35am or so by a young girl, very friendly!

Placed under oath and asked a few 'standard' questions, this took about 10 minutes, then she just asked us to tell about ourselves, how we met, etc..
My wife and I talked solidly for about 45 minutes, the girl just let us go on and on!.
We naturally fell into a normal conversation, laughing about things and just talking about our lives.

We were then told we were approved and sent on our way.

Advise for anyone that is nervous... Be prepared with all the documentation, triple check you have everything!
But then when you arrive, be prepared for a 'casual conve... read complete review
