Event Description
Review Date : July 22, 2011
Embassy Review : ok guys i will continue with my interview: the IO have an accent and i got confused a few times i wasnt able to understand him 100% . First he made us swore that we are telling the truth and bla bla. and after that he opened my AOS package and asked all the questions, where i was born, DOB, the yes/no questions. my hubby is a full time student and his paid intern with NASA ended last month and since i just got my EAD 2 days ago im not employed and he made a comment about it, how come are living with bein unemployed. but trust me he was very very sarcastic with that and the rest of his questions. but my hubby and i were calm and had a natural attitude. after we was finished with my AOS package he asked us why is our attorney not present? we cant afford to pay his fee to be with us now, we answered. Next he asked us about how we met, and he interrupted me every 2 mins . we show him our lease agreement, bank statements and he added "oh anyone can go to a bank to add a person, and it doesnt mean thats joint account" he had comments and questions to everything we said and showed him.. and after that i gave him our photo album, and we do have our pics of the two of us, our marriage was at city hall with my mom,sister and best friend coming from NJ. he asked who was each person and ended up with this comment" Anybody can take photos saying they have a bonafide marriage, and fake it" when he said that i was oh Good lord you know our love is truth and thats all it matters. in other words my friends , he made us feel like we were not telling the truth, he asked lots of tricky questions and did not stop being sarcastic i know thats his job, he took my 1-94 and i told him i have a few job interviews for this week and he said back" you can have it, i wasnt planning to take it" i dont know he was expected us to get nervious because of his attitude but we were very natural. and the IO finished saying that if im approved i must file remove conditions after 2 years. and that we will get an answer within 30 days i think. the interview was stressful , we are a young couple which means we dont have a lot of money and are trying to get our BS degree.we only have one bank account, well my friends that was my day , it wasnt easy, the IO didnt made it easy, of course thats his job and i trust God has everything under control. as i wrote before my interview was at 1:30 ( it was 40 mins long) and a hour ago we received two emails from uscis:

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.
