Local US CIS Office Review: Portland OR
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : September 17, 2012
Embassy Review : Just had our interview for AOS from F-1 in Portland, Oregon. We waited in the waiting room up stairs with a bunch of other couples and singles waiting for their InfoPass appointments.

When we were finally called in (about 30 minutes after our appointment time), an officer led us back to her office and swore us in. Then she said she would be interviewing me (the US citizen) first. She went straight in and asked me my husbands full name, birthday, and our address. Then she started asking about my I-864 (which we qualified for based on assets). She wasn't very happy that we didn't have a steady income, but was satisfied with my answers and finally started asking my husband his mandatory questions from the I-485. She also made him go over each and every one of his entries into the US (which has been about 6 times now) asking about when he came in on VWP and his student visa, the months and days that he came in and how long he stayed. I was surprised that she seemed so interested in that.

Finally she said she was going to go ahead and approve us and gave us the acceptance letter, along with the speech about removing conditions in two years. She said the green card would arrive in about a week to 10 days.

All in all the interview was about 1 hour. Still, I am so happy we were approved
Harassment Level : Very Good

*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.

** Not all cases are transfered
