Comments : Interview was a combo interview with ROC. ROC was approved on the spot and N400 was decision cannot be made at this time. A week later on March 13th we got a RFE for N400 asking for additional relationship evidence even though we brought all evidence to interview. Which was very bizzare since the ROC had just been approved. We submitted all evidence we had old and new to the myuscis website. Status then updated to My Response to USCIS request for evidence was received". On May 19th I submitted more evidences to the Unsolicited Evidence section of myuscis which indicated they may or may not look at it and weren't required to look at it. I thought it couldn't hurt. On May 25th status updated to My oath ceremony will be scheduled and on myuscis status updated to My application has been approved. It took around 72 days from responding to RFE to get approval/82 days since interview.

Event Description

Embassy Review : Very easy time. He got into the customs area and was bumped to the front of the line once the customs officer saw he had a fiancé visa. He took him to a room and asked only a few basic questions respectfully. Also took his packet off of him and opened it in a separate room then came back. The questions he asked were: What is your name? When are you marrying your fiancée? Is she here at the airport? He answered all the questions. After that he stamped his passport and was through. Zero harassment zero trouble at MSP Airport.
Harassment Level : Low

Hello and congratulations on successfully arriving to the end of this process. I am still waiting. Would you be kindly share when did you receive interview letter, if the letter asked you to go alone or with spouse? what questions were asked from you during i-751 interview? Did they tell you after interview if you are approved or not? THANK YOU very much

Parsi2017 sorry for getting back to you so late. We received interview letter on January 26th. Interview was March 5th. Letter only mentioned N400 interview it did not mention ROC but we knew it would be a combo interview since ROC was still pending. The letter did not mention anything about bringing spouse but I came with my husband to his interview anyway just in case. It was indeed a combo interview and surprisingly they didn't invite me in even though my husband told them I was in the lobby. They asked what day we got married, and how we met. The IO also asked him where I worked that was about it for the ROC portion. We brought all evidences we had to interview since we knew it was a combo ; the IO looked at them but didn't take anything except a copy of my passport biographical page and a copy of our marriage certificate. ROC was approved on the spot. N400 was a decision cannot be made yet which is what most people get at a combo interview. A week later we got his approval letter for ROC and his new GC. But unexpectadly got a RFE for N400 for more relationship evidence even though all was brought to interview. I think it happened because our IO didn't take any of our relationship evidence at interview so when a final review was being done by another IO we got a RFE. We submitted all evidence we had immediately onto myuscis website. It took 72 days from the time we responded to RFE to receive approval. We got notified of approval last weekend and are now waiting on the oath ceremony letter.

*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.
