Event Description
Review Date : October 10, 2010
Embassy Review : AOS INTERVIEW (Rescheduled) | 9/22/10 | 1:00pm | Orlando, FL

We arrived at 12:25 and the office was sooooo empty! There was literally one other person there when we arrived. We later found out that they weren't having any Infopass appointments that day, only some rescheduled AOS appointments. By the time we got called at 1:30, there were about 4 other couples there.

Our IO was a friendly young lady and she didn't make us feel nervous at all. She made us raise our right hands and swear in after being seated. She first asked to see our identification, photocopied them, verified a lot of the information in our file like our date of births, the visa I arrived on, past schools, and his employment status. She also verified that the address on file was the one we wanted as our primary.

At this point I asked her if I could change my maiden name to his last name and she said yes of course, and scratched out my last name and wrote his on my file. I was really happy because I DID NOT want to wait 2 years or pay to have it changed!

Our IO then proceeded to ask us:
When we met, describe the scenario
Where was our wedding held
What the business we started is about
The story behind our rings

We also discussed his hospital stay and why he couldn't make it last time. Towards the end (about 10 minutes later) she began to explain the details of a conditional green card (YAY) then asked to see any other evidence we have establishing our marriage. We handed her pictures and the records.

I was never asked all the criminal yes/no questions, and she never took my I-94's or anything.
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
