Consulate / USCIS Member Review #32324

Denver CO Review on August 2, 2023:



Review Topic: Adjustment of Status

I had to go to the field office in Denver for the interview of my AOS application (IR-1). I filled my application on September 23rd, 2022 and I finally had my interview on July 31st, 2023. I brought every single document I could think of, including an exact copy of every document submitted, the originals and additional evidence that I collected while waiting for the interview. It turns out it was the way to go.

After we arrived, we were called in almost immediately by the officer. She was nice and friendly and not intimidating at all, although it was clear she was doing her job at verifying all the information provided and that the relationship was real. Again, they are just doing their job, not trying to be your friend. We were not worried since our relationship was legit, so it felt more like a conversation than anything else. She asked about our live together, future plans and some clarification on a few things that we submitted. For example, she was curious why our joint account had so little money in it, but after explaining that we just opened shortly after marrying and providing updated bank statements she understood the situation. She mostly cared about the new evidence that we had collected while waiting and hadn't submitted yet. She scanned everything new (even pictures) and updated a few things on the forms.

At the time of our interview, USCIS was having some sort of IT issue with the applications, but the officer was pretty transparent on what they were trying to do to solve it and how that could impact our timeline. In short, it seemed like the I-130 petition was separated from the rest and had to be reviewed in paper and approved after creating an IT ticket. She told us that the approval could be delayed a few months, but it turns out they manage to approve it the next day!

Overall, a great experience, nice service and good transparency.
