thank you for the note. Here’s how the interview went with Officer Sarah C.
- asked how we met
- verified that neither of us had been married or had children
- looked at (and kept) Linda’s I-94 card
- spent about a minute looking at our passports and driver’s licenses (officer was looking for the addresses to be the same)
- noticed Linda’s F-1 visa on the form and wanted to see it… however that visa was on an expired passport (which we didn’t have with us)
- spent about three minutes asking Linda the same questions found in the I-485 form
- spent about three minutes looking at and taking copies of our (supporting documents)
She ended the interview with “It looks like everything is in good shape here, but we have to run some computer checks. I’ll run them before the end of the day and have an answer for you. I’ll send a letter in a week or you can check your case status online. Thank you for being so organized.”
Yesterday evening we checked online and found that Linda was granted Permanent Residency. The notice says to expect the card in the mail in 60 days. We have little doubt that our organization and completeness was key to a successful AOS interview. You and your team were a big part of that. Thank you for your prompt responses to our questions and willingness to indulge our quest for perfection in the forms.
Working with you and your firm made the process manageable and kept us sane.
Thanks for all your efforts!
