Local US CIS Office Review: Phoenix AZ
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : April 14, 2009
Embassy Review : We arrived half an hour earlier before the interview time 2:15pm, it was a big mall with tons of restaurant over there and we couldn't find the sign until we saw the name on directory, it was hidding at the left corner of the mall and we had to walk all the way around outside of the mall to find that tiny little door named "USCIS appointment only" so we could get to second level. We had a regular security check with metal detector before we got in. We were instructed to put the appointment letter into a white box and wait for my name to be called. There was only another pair of couple with their (maybe?) lawyer to wait. My name was called 5 mins after by a lady. After sworn she asked both of us for an ID, my passport with I-94 and AP then started to ask me some simple questions such as where do u live, whats ur phone number, she then asked me few questions in I-485 such as if you're into any political party, have you transport drugs before etc. Finally she asked us to show her the copy of our evidence to prove our marriage so we gave her a pile of paper with our wedding album, we just went through all the paper with her once then she asked me to confirm my name if its correct and said well I'm gonna approve your application and you will have your card around 2 weeks. She explained us that I'm gonna get 2 yrs conditional card first then reminded us to file the removal conditional 90 days before my card expired and said we can file for citizenship a year after we got the 10 yrs one I told her I probably wanna take a break from paperwork for awhile and we both were laughing and joking abit before we left. I thought she was gonna be very mean to me but turned out she was super nice.

Oh btw she only took my AP and gave me back my EAD card and told me to cut the card like credit card after I have my gc.

The whole interview only took us 15 mins even tho it sounds like alot longer and we walked out from the building by 2pm.
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
