Hello and congratulations on successfully arriving to the end of this process. I am still waiting and would be grateful if you respond to a few questions. - Did your interview said it is combined interview and your spouse should be with you? - What questions were asked from you and your spouse during i-751 interview? Thanks and good luck

Thank you and wish you the best too. My wife's interview notice was only for N400. However we had called them before since ROC was out of processing time and they had said o we the phone that both applications will be done at the same time My wife was called in and after the IO was done with her, she called me in. She asked the same questions she had asked my wife and compared the responses,..questions were how we met, if we went for honeymoon after wedding, where was the wedding and who was at the wedding. She also asked my wife about my older kids if she knows them. Then she told me she was satisfied and would talk to my wife quick. She called her and told her that she was recommending approval of both petitions and we went he happily. I hope I have answered you, let me know if you have any other questions.

*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
