Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

I had completed a thorough review back in July 2016 when the interview took place, but it seems to have been deleted. Anyway, that interview went well even though I recall waiting ~1 hr beforehand. We were approved during the interview.

Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

Just had my interview for Adjustment of Status from a K1 visa.

My wife and I arrived 30 minutes early as instructed. We had to wait just a little past our appointment time before someone called my name. The IO was very friendly and easygoing. First he gave some instructions and took my fingerprints. He then proceeded to ask a few very simple questions, basically just seeing if I remember some of the things I filled in on the application. He then asked quite a lot of questions of the type "do you plan on selling drugs in the US" and so on, and then he asked me three "personal" questions about my wife - name, favourite food, and favourite song. And that was it - he did not ask for a single thing from the fat binder I had prepared. Not even one photograph or identification documents for our co-sponsor or anything. Literally not a single piece of paper. So that was a pretty big waste of paper, plastic and ink... but of course we are happy that the interview was so easy.

Our case might have been a bit unusual in that we filed from a K1 but we actually lived together in my home country before we moved to the US, so maybe they required a little less evidence of a bona fide relationship than they normally do. At any rate, I'd say the whole experience was just about as pleasant and pain-free as a government/immigration related experience can be.

Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

Yesterday we had our interview in Phoenix, AZ. We got there 30 minutes before the appointment. The security line was fast and in a few minutes we were waiting in the lobby. They called us about 15 minutes after the appointment time.

The IO was very nice and she made us feel at easy, she had our 900 pages file on her desk. After fingerprint/photo she asked us if we had any questions, I got to ask her about my hyphenated last name. Which she said that most likely it won't appear in the GC. After that she sworn us in and started checking the information submitted in the forms. She started with the sponsor spouse asking names, DOB, parents names, address, etc. and they moved to the beneficiary spouse with the same questions.

In addition, she asked about the past status that the beneficiary spouse had, such as F1/OPT and J1 visa and the number of hours worked under those visas. The next step was the standard YES/NO questions, she asked us most of them. She corrected the address for the F1-OPT from the company's headquarter to the physical location of work.

Finally, she moved on to the relationship part of the interview. She asked us to tell our "love story". We then briefly talked about how me met and started dating. She then asked only two more questions: "Our favorite part of our wedding and what are our future plans". We briefly answered those, gave her a few more photos and financial documents that we had brought in and she said that she'll be approving the application later on the day.

She also kept my EAD cards from the F1 status but told us to keep the AOS EAD to use as proof of status and right to work. Finally she explained the RoC process and said that we're done.

I believe that the entire thing took about 30 minutes. Out of curiosity, we also asked about the number of cases that she takes on in a day. Apparently she gets about 7 cases everyday and they work 10 hours day. They are encouraged to get everything done the same day.

Around 5pm on the same day we got the text saying that the card is in production.

Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

We had an appointment of 3:15 pm, we were impressed that we were called back at about 3:25 pm. We were surprised that a government agency gave us very little wait time. The interview was about 30 mins and the agent was very friendly, we even did some sarcasm and laughing at times. Most questions, as expected, were directed at my foreign spouse. We went to the interview with more documentation that the checklist had asked for, so whenever the agent asked for some kind of documentation, we had no trouble providing. For working with government officials it was actually a pleasant experience. I wish other government places had the same efficiency and friendliness as this local office had.
