Comments : The officer was super nice and down to earth. We started with our I-751. We had to provide my passport, drivers license and green card. My husband had to give his driver license.  We went through our application- asked questions on our own families. We were asked how we met. Lots of chit chat between. She asked if I had any additional evidence I’d like to submit which I gave her my tax transcripts and extra photos. She then asked my husband to step out so we can conduct the N400. she went through what would happen. Go over the application, civics test and then the eligibility. I got asked 4 questions: Why do some states have more reps? General Eisenhower was in What war?  How long does the president serve?  What is one responsibility of a US citizen? I had to read a statement ( I can’t remember) and wrote on a tablet “Washington was the first president”. went over the yes/no questions.  Then she handed me a piece of paper which stated I passed the N400. She explained my Green card will be mailed to me regardless and then a letter will be mailed with a date of my Oath ceremony. Everything was returned to me including my expired GC. She said to bring both GC to ceremony where they will be taken. She congratulated me and said let’s get back to your husband.

Local US CIS Office Review: Manchester NH
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : July 13, 2018
Embassy Review : My Husband and I went for our joint interview for AOS. Overall, it was fairly painless. We arrived early and sat in the waiting room for around 25 mins. A IO called my name which both my husband and I stood. She did not do separate interviews.

We entered the office and she asked for a copy of our marriage certificate (apparently missing from file) also asked for IDs. She then stated she was going to run through our application. Asked questions such as “ When did we get legally married and whether our families attended?, What is my full legal name?, What other names have I used?, Date of birth, Where I live and if I have room mates? My husbands full legal name, his date of birth and where he lives. She the asked if I have a job and made a few notes. She finally went through all the yes and no questions at the end of the application. That was it, she said your green card will be mailed within 2-4 weeks.

In and out within 20 mins! I had prepared a full binder worth of everything. Not even looked at.

The whole experience was fine, everyone was polite.
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
