Event Description
Review Date : April 7, 2021
Embassy Review : I had my AOS interview on March 25th, 2021. It turned out to be a very smooth process and the nerves I had were definitely not necessary! My appointment was at 10:15am, hubby and I arrived just before 10am and were allowed into the building and through security. We logged in remotely via an iPad and had our temp taken. I would say we waited about 20-25 mins for our interview. I was called in first and the IO was extremely pleasant, kind and personable. The whole experience had a conversational feel to it which made me feel at ease. He asked basic questions off the I-485 and then continued to ask all the yes/no questions. He then proceeded to ask when/where we met, how long we dated before we decided to get married, when/where we got engaged, did hubs give me a ring, where was the wedding -reception/honeymoon? We currently do not live together full time due to work, so he did ask quite a few questions regarding our situation - what I do for work/my hubs does for work, how many beds/bathrooms in both locations, hubs favourite food that I make for him, who cooks the most, last sit down meal together, what do we do for fun when we are together, how we got to the interview, and lastly, why did I marry him. They were all very straight forward questions and easy to answer! I then gave him all my new evidence of bonafide relationship. He then informed me that I would not receive approval that day but if he needed any more info, I would receive a letter in the mail. He then took hubby in (while I sat nervously in waiting room). Apparently he asked him very similar questions plus questions off the I-130. The only extra question was related to our plans for children in the future. At the end, he told hub that he didn't see any red flags in our marriage but had to get the paperwork together and submit it to his supervisor for approval. About 30 minutes later, I received an email saying my case has been approved and my card was being produced!!! I received my green card in the mail about a week later. All in all, it was a great experience! Case approved in less than a year, so I definitely cannot complain!
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
