My interview experience: Length: About 20 minutes. My Lawyer had already arrived early. My petitioner (USC Mother) and I arrived about 45 minutes before interview time. I wore my signature suit and Tie. I was called on time. My lawyer instructed that my mom stays in the waiting room. IO checked my ID. I took the Oath. From the start, IO said he was a little confused because my 2001 ETA 750 Labor Certification said EWI which was clearly an error from my then attorney. My lawyer explained to the IO that I entered on a B2 Visa. IO asked for proof and I showed him my original I-94 to satisfy that requirement and this was the only document he asked for. (Entry type would not have mattered since I was grandfathered into the 245i benefit which means EWI’s are also covered). We also had the Visa # stamp as well on my mother’s expired passport. IO then asked us to bring my father in because for some reason he thought my father was the sponsor (he is deceased). He only asked my mother her full name. IO seemed fairly new so we had to clear some stuff up. My lawyer actually did all the educating part to the IO. IO was wondering why I was using 245i if I had legal entry so my lawyer told him that I Overstayed my Visa and it was necessary for me to adjust under 245i if I wanted to do the AOS. IO asked my full name, current address and DOB. We had to correct the birth year on I-485 because it was a typographical error from USCIS. IO asked random few questions they were YES/NO and I got them all correct. He then asked for updated I-693 which I submitted to him. He then went off to check off the pages and did work on his computer. He gave me the standard white sheet which stated: ‘Your Case is being held for review’. IO said this was the normal process for everyone to run background checks. I think he had to get approval final from his supervisor. My lawyer who has 20 years of experience partially congratulated my mother and I and thought interview went well and was confident. Next morning, I woke up to ‘New Card is being produced’ which should be the 10 years and I should be eligible for Citizenship in 4 years and 9 months.
Hello. I am currently in the process of AOS. I received my initial EAD and had one RFIE (Birth Certificate with English Translation). I submitted the evidence and now the I-485 status online says ‘Ready to be scheduled for an interview’. I came here as a child with my Mother on her passport (I did not have a passport then) which was on a 6 month B1 Visa. Her passport does have my name and Visa stamp on it including my own I-94 card. However, my Labor Certification filed on it before 4/30/01 ETA-750 says EWI. I do not know why. Also, I came to USA on a tourist visa with my parents as a child 2 years prior and we left before our duration of stay expired. I do not have the I-94 for that but have the passport stamp Visa stating me in there. I never left USA the second time I was brought here as a child. USC Mother petition me for I-130 which was approved in the F1 category. I would still be covered under 245i grandfathered rule right? Also, would the EWI on ETA-750 cause any confusion with USCIS?
Hello. I have an upcoming interview for I-485 and I-485A on 2/25/19. Approved I-130 (USC Mother). Family preference FB1, unmarried, son 21+. Mother will also be with me at the interview as well as my Lawyer. Do I bring all originals and 1 color photo copy of each document? List: (They were already submitted to USCIS). I received 1 RFIE for BC with EC (USCIS accepted the document). I-94 Card. Updated I-693. Mother’s Passport (My entry stamp is on it as my own passport did not exist then). My 3 Passports (First 2 are expired). My Birth Certificate with English Translation. I-864 - Joint Sponsor is my USC Brother 100%, 2017 all tax returns and W2 with December and January pay stubs. RD is 10/4/17. Employment letter? My mother had no financial info but we still had to submit it. Brother’s Certificate of Naturalization? His BC? ETA-750 Part A & B with CA DOL receiving my Labor Certification on or before 4/30/01. Biggest issue is that I never received any acknowledgment receipt. It just has the date (on or before 4/30/01) and their staff initials listed on it with job code. Also it states EWI (no idea why). Proof of physical presence on 12/21/00. Initial EAD (C09). Parents Marriage Certificate. Mother’s BC? Her Certificate of Naturalization? Anything else I should bring?
