Local US CIS Office Review: Norfolk VA
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : November 11, 2019
Embassy Review : We had our AOS interview 11/7. received notification of approval 11/10, but dated 11/8.

interview was at 8, we were there at 7 30 and first ones in, didnt have interview until shortly after 9 (this was concerning since i had a 10:30 hair appointment LMAO) 😕

questions... pretty easy/standard. basically verifying info on the forms submitted. Asked paul some of my family members names and info about my kids (some he knew, some he didnt lol). asked me his parents names and kids birthdays (aside from month i didnt know- they are grown lol). My financial situation has changed, she did not want updated affidavit of support (i did have updated version), but did take hubbys pay stubs and employment verification letter. She did ask about pauls criminal background (bar fight 20 some years ago and DUI in 2016- assault charge was expunged and DUI resolved that same year while he was still in canada). The only other thing she wanted was relationship evidence (photos, joint car insurance, wills and power of attorney, few misc small items) and the sealed packet from his physical. interview took probably 30 minutes. for the record we have separate bank account and most likely will continue to do so for some time. They did not have a problem with this. Plenty of other evidence to be had.

As far as what we took - EVERYTHING. every original document (birth certificates, death/divorce/marriage certs), criminal background checks, everything submitted in the original packet we took the original forms for. took our wedding album, which she looked through. she laughed when paul said she could keep it and i said no she can not - that it was expensive! LOL I did let her keep all the other photos we provided (most of which were just printed a few to a page on printer paper) . Asked why 2 weddings (we married on 12/24 legally in our home, but since originally we had filed for k1, we also had wedding plans for this past july- so we had that wedding too since that was the one with all our friends and family). she asked for none of the other info (10 pound accordion file LMAO) I had with us aside from any new relationship evidence (i think the car insurance was new since we filed (maybe, i dont recall), and paystubs

Other than waiting too long for our interview, it went smoothly and I have no complaints. Officer was professional and semi-friendly, asked questions to clarify info when she needed it. She did not tell us if we were approved or not on the spot, but we also did not, maybe she would have if we HAD asked.

Harassment Level : 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
