I had interview at 10:30 am today me and my beautiful wife arrived about 45 mins ealier so we walked in got signed in and we were asked to wait that someone was going to call our name and take us in for the interview, so we sat down and waited for about 40 mins, there were so many people there today, while waiting my name was called so i walked towards the door and it was a white lady i said thank God i wanted a woman to be the one doing the interview lol

Ok before i continue, i had read so much about this AOS i got really scared well i dont know but mine was very easy even much more easier than my k1 visa interview in Nigeria, i cant stop smilling as am writting this review now i got a really Big smile on my face oh and my wife just brought me a drink and gave me a kiss lol sweet aint it? yes we got to rest from uscis for a while ahahahahaha

ok now i continue so we walked in her office she stood us up and swore us in

then the interview began

She asked for my passport and id i gave her
she now went through my file and was asking questions to make sure all was correct including my dob ssn and all that after a very long line of questions that i have to answer yes or no lol all my answers was No by the way am clean hahahaha very good right?

so she asked how we met
asked me my wives DOB then she asked my wife what i do for fun
and also asked me the same thing
so she then asked for any document i have that shows us having something in our name i gavce her all i had
by the way i had sent in everything they requested while i was filling for this AOS i even sent more than what was asked me. I got that idea from VJ it is better to be overprepared than not to be prepared although i did send in some pictures while filling for the AOS i also brought about 100 more photos she did not even loook lol

Embassy Review : MY PEOPLE JOIN ME PRAISE THE LORD OHH!!!!!
HE DID IT FOR ME HE WILL DO IT FOR YOU TOO

I printed out over 300 pages of facebook chat 200 pages of call records over 25 pages of yahoo chats 8 skype video chat 2

pages of whatsapp chat ( i use a blackberry so i saved the screen for whats app) i got Tax return for past 3 years, etc.

Now the important part
one day before my interview i went out i got 2 pen blue and black i decided i was gonna give out the blue one and use the black one for myself which i did seating at

the gate waiting for my appointment time to be called a man came to beg for money i gave him N200 before i did i prayed with the money for a sec so when my

interview time was called i went in with my document submitted my appointment letter and visa payment then i was give a paper to fill and a smal card i went tru

security twice got my number and waited for more than one hour before i was called i submitted everything they asked and the lady told me to wait for my number to be

called again for ,my interview i sat down waiting while waiting this white lady resumed she then called her first number and she gave the visa in seconds i

started praying for mine lol ok so i prayed at everyone that got approved then this other black guy resumed then he called the first person and gave the visa i did not see him deny anyone i started praying for him to interview me too lol so he called a number it was a old lady she got there he told her to raise her right hand up she did not understand she was going through her document thinking he asked her for it then i walked up to her and told here what to do the guy interviewing said thank you lol i felt well if this guy interviews me now he is definately gonna give me this visa i waited for my number and waited and waited then another old lady came the seat was full i stood up for her then she sat down this guy interviewing noticed this after the next person he was interviweing he called my number i rushed to the counter and the Battle began



Raise your right hand
Do you swear to say the truth? (i forgot how he said it)
ME: yes sir
he gave me my ds156k to sign i did he asked me to thumb print i did and he said "PERFECT" this is what others do for 5 mins i did it in 10 sedonds
then the questions

HOW DID YOU TWO MEET?
i answered one answere led to another question about how we met
he then asked me how we communicate
i told him then i gave him text books lol of chat records and phone records plus skype yahoo and whatsapp what he actually looked at well was the chat history i have with my fiancee daughter the rest he just glanced through them he did not read lol then he check just 5 to 8 pages of my 200 phone record pages
he then asked for Pictures i gave him
this is where things became tensed he took the pictures to the other white lady then he came back and took my phone records and facebook history to her i just placed my head on the counter and said if i dont get this i will just faint here lol
then he came back and continued asking questions

WHY DO YOU WANT TO GET MARRIED IN THE STATE?
WHEN IS THE WEDDING?
DO YOU REALISE THEN AGE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOU TWO?

after all this he gave me back my pictures and my facebook history with calls

YOUR VISA IS APPROVED
PICK IT UP HERE ON SO SO DATE
ME: THANK YOU SIR
I TURNED AROUND IMMEDIATELY I DID NOT WAIT THERE TO ARRANGE MY BAG I JUST PACKED THEM AS I TURNED I LOOKED UP WITH BOTH HANDS UP AND SAID THANK YOU JESUS
AS I WALKED TEARS OF JOY DROPPED FROM MY EYES I CLEANED IT I FELT LIKE CRYING I FELT LIKE JUMPING BUT I KEPT MY COOL WALKED OUT AND CALLED HER ON THE PHONE VISA APPROVED

Now all i expected to be asked was not asked everything i studied i was not asked about for all the people making this interview look hard stop, it was the easiest thing i have ever done in my life as long as your love is genuine you know what to say with any question asked make sure all your documents are complete if you have 50,000 facebook messages print as much as possible they wont go through it all they will glance but its of your own advantage to do so print all phone records it helped my case do not lie or you will end up lying to cover up a lie and you will be denied be truthfull and pray

*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.
