The interview was very straightforward.
Interview officer (IO) went thru the entire i485 form and verified that the details
are correct as of the interview date. Made some corrections there. Then
walked through the Yes/No questions from the form and noted our answers.
Later asked to provide original documents for the copies that were submitted
along with the application: Birth certificate, Marriage certificate and i797s.
Then asked to see the EAD/AP Combo cards that we received and took copies
of them which we carried.
Then asked about our wedding, how we first met and when we decided to get
married. Asked to see documents showing cohabitation, shared finances and
any other evidence for the wedding. We provided lease agreement, joint bank
statements, joint credit card statements, photos from the last few years.
The IO collected all the documents we provided along with 10 photos and put
them with our application. Later asked me and my spouse questions about our
job duties and work experience. Asked to see my Employment verification letter,
paystubs and tax transcripts and examined them.
The IO then step out for a bit and came back with a letter and mentioned that our
case and documents looks good and that the case should be approved soon.
Saw "New Card Is Being Produced" update the same day.
