Greencard Received: 2008-02-28
Comments : Yay! Finally the hallowed green card arrives! AOS took over two years because of FBI name check. Oy! The interview was quick and easy. Mostly we were asked questions about our parents' birthdates and that type of thing, to prove that we were who we said we were. I think the interview was 15 minutes from start to finish. We showed up with a pile of papers--all the supporting documentation that you're supposed to bring--and the AO looked at us like, "What is all that stuff, and why did you bring it?" He was pleasant but seemed tired. He said that he approved our application but that a decision couldn't be made until the FBI check cleared. We had no idea that it would be 22 months before approval! But no complaints now. We waited so long, we don't have to worry about removing conditions.

*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
