Local US CIS Office Review: New York City NY

Event Description
Review Date : February 22, 2008
Embassy Review : Hi guys,

Here is my experience from today interview in Garden city.
Me and my husband came there at 1:30pm. It was so much people there, and immediately I got headache. I can't remember when they call us upstairs (because immigration officer was mean, and I don't feel good right now). But I know that it was around 3pm and we were waiting upstairs.
Then she came and said my name, and I said it's me and she brought G-325A form for my husband to fill it. I was so confused beacuse it is written on instruction that american citizen exept for name and signature doesn't need to repeat information given on I-130, but whenever we fill it and then after 15 minutes she came and we gave her, and she call us to come in office.
She swear us, and ask us 2 times do we need interpretor, and we said no.
After that she asked both of us for birth certificate with translation, certified copy of marriage certificate, my ead, passeport ofme and my husband, and she asked for divorced papers from my husnad since he was married before.We gave her everything and then she started questions. She asked first my husband about his previos marriage, how he met his wife, and what she worked, and how many siblings she had, and where did they live, and why they divorced. Then he asked him how we met, what did I do when we met, and did he ever met my family, and where they live.
Then he asked me my address, and my husband phone number, and what my husnad work, and did he work for somone or he is self-empoyed, and how many sibling he has, and where his family live, and did I ever meet them, and talk to them. Did I ever saw his ex wife, and how much money my husband make????O my God...Then she asked me how long we are being together, and where we got married.
And then she asked me yes/no questions, and she said us that we bring there certifed copy of divorced degree before they make decision, and my husnad told her these are the only divorced papers that I have, and she wasn't clear. I don't understand her, because she said that they might have decision even tomorrow, or on Monday???What a heck, he needs to drive 7 hours to get certified merriage paper, she didn't accept one that we had???
But anyway she wrote this in my passport:
She remove I-94, and wrote
A.....(that is case number she wrote)
I-485 Pending/CR-6
Present at GCU-NY/sec.245
her name and date

So what do you guys think, she didn't stamp my passport, I don't know what to think

*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
