    gaps0214 we received a request for more evidence. In April my husband was a victim of a carjacking and kidnapping. This letter says they want certified police report for the arrest incident or complaint. And then it explains this is written report created by the police officer who arrested you. I really hope I'm reading that wrong because he was the victim and not arrested. They also want the original birth certificate for my husband and his daughter. We took this to the interview and they did not ask for it. Now they're telling me the copies are not complete which they are. They also want evidence that our marriage is legitimate. Because last year we had our tax return split into two different bank accounts and they're saying we didn't give statements from those bank account which we did. I have already provided them what they want. I provided our apartment lease, joint bank statements, light bill with both names, internet bill with both names, renter's insurance and medical insurance in both names as well as a whole packet full of pictures of him and I. We don't have any wedding pictures because we got married in Vegas and no one was there to take pictures. I'm not exactly sure what to do from here. Feeling extremely frustrated.
    Dorothyguenther OK I'm reading your update and while it may feel a bit overwhelming for you because of the pent-up anxiety, do take a few minutes to breathe and take stock of the demands from immigration - 1) copy of certified police report of "incident" in question - can you get that? I hope so;
    2) original birth certificates are easy to get because all I did was drive to Tumwater and get my husband's they give it to you once you pay the fee no questions;
    3) Evidence of legitimate marriage - I say dump them the same evidence you have provided before the interview and the evidence you brought to the interview but they did not bother to collect - separate the two files and provide a cover letter - gently reminding them of the fact that you have submitted these at the start of the AOS application and have brought the second set during the first AOS interview
    4) About the pictures, I suggest that you are able to label these according to place, time and date taken, then organize them in order from latest to oldest
    5) Send your documents with a cover letter for the whole package, then another cover letter for each major section of documents/evidence that they specifically asked for in the RFE

    If you need any more help to figure it out, PM me.

    I trust you'll find this helpful and take it easy, you'll get through this fine.

    Cheers.

      Gaps, my i130 and i485 approval notice were delivered today
      Hi annette2412 have you gotten your card yet in the mail? Just wondering how long it took from receiving the notice in the mail and the card itself in the mail.
      Thanks for writing back.
      Cheers.

        My wife and I had our AOS interview on September 16th. Early morning in Minneapolis. The officer went over the I-130 with me (Husband) and I-485 with my Wife. No other questions were asked!!!!! We gave the IO our newly submitted paper works. This includes, ( 2018 tax return, water bill, new sign lease, and health insurance.) And, That was it. Didn't ask how we met, how I propose to her, our life, and etc. I'm a little bit worried.

        The whole interview took about 10 mins or so. At the end of the interview, the IO gave us a paper stating that he could not approve us on the spot and needs further background checking. It's been seven days now. Our case status has not changed. Still says the case was scheduled.

        Anyone has this kind of experience????? or know how long it will take for them to approve us? or...anything????????????

        So worried right now and can't do anything.

        If anyone out there is having the same experience or close to it. Would mind sharing their thoughts or feelings??????

        Much appreciated.


        Thank you,
        willpoint53 your experience and ours is almost identical, but you probably had it better because it seemed that you took a lot less time than we did in the interview, but we did get an approval on the 485 about 10 days after interview date, the 130 got approved the day after, and the notices arrived in the mail on the 14th day after interview, so hang in there, and get ready to receive your good news

            • Hello Seattle Filers,

              Just updating the forum with my details which culminated to the final arrival of the 2 year conditional GC below:

              Married to USC, on C9 AOS, same-sex marriage, Seattle, WA
              PD: March 22, 2018
              RD: April 6, 2018
              Biometrics: April 27, 2018
              RFE: June 11, 2018
              RFE Resolved: June 21, 2018
              Requested expedite through ROC: Negative outcome
              July 9, 2018: I-485 Status Changed to Case is Ready to be Scheduled for Interview
              August 15, 2018: EAD/AP Approval Notice Received by Email
              August 22, 2018: SS Card in Hand
              August 31, 2018: EAD/AP Combo Card in Hand
              September 1, 2018: Used EAD/AP Combo Card to apply for Canadian Visitors Visa
              September 3, 2018: Canadian TRV approved
              October 24, 2018: Travelled outside of US for medical purpose
              November 4, 2018: Crossed into US border from Canada using EAD/AP Combo Card, Parole Approved
              February 22, 2019: Sent Renewal Application for EAD/AP : Received 737s but nothing afterwards
              August 2, 2019: Initial Interview Scheduled
              August 8, 2019: Received NOA for Initial Interview Scheduled
              September 9, 2019: Initial Interview for AOS - for further review 30 days - no approval on the spot
              September 19, 2019: I-485 was approved, status changed to card being produced September 21, 2019
              September 26, 2019: 2 Year Conditional GC received in mail

              In total a little bit over 18 months end-to-end from PD to GC.

              My Quick Tips:
              • Some of you may still be waiting for their interviews, do stay patient, it will come.
              • When interview notice comes, start putting together the best evidences required for the AOS interview, better fully prepared and just have the immigration officer cherry-pick from your collection of documents, rather than not have what they asked for in the first place in the AOS interview NOA letter.
              • On interview day, shower shave dress up wear makeup be pretty/handsome, it makes a very good first impression, come on time and engage the immigration officer with smiles and light conversation, answering questions directly and briefly, only explain some more if they ask you to give more details.
              • For the ones who had interviews and are still hurdling through an RFE or a case still for further review, take it easy, give them what they ask for in terms of evidence and you will be fine, otherwise its just a matter of time if you have done all your best to provide evidence for them to approve your AOS.
              Until the next stage of the journey 21 months from now, we thank everyone in the forum for being part of our journey to this point, it always helps to know you are not the only one going through the process and the anxieties, we are very very grateful.

              Cheers.

                Hey gaps0214, thanks for coming back to share all your timeline and some very important tips with us!
                My PD is June 28, 2018 and I'm still waiting for my interview to be scheduled.
                The silver lining on my end is that we're heading to our 3rd wedding anniversary so, by the time we have the interview, it will be a Permanent GC.

                This waiting game causes a lot of anxiety but posts like yours definitely give us a lot of hope.
                I wish you and your spouse a lovely journey filled with happiness!

                          Interview date is about a month from your NOA and NOA arrives about 5 days after your case status changes to Interview Scheduled.
                          Good luck.

                          • Hello Seattle Filers with conditional GC,

                            So we've subscribed to another thread across the pond, you might want to keep an eye for that because UScitizenFilingforspouse who has been very diligent in the AOS threads has put up a TOC for the removal of conditions which could be a great resource in putting together your strategy and get through the removal filing with ease when the time comes, link is below:

                              For my case it was one month.

                              • I had my interview on Sep 24th and now the new card is ordered and i485 approved. Not sure why the online status i130 is not approved yet. Looking forward to receive my GC! Thanks all for the great information here. And good luck to those still waiting for interviews or having a coming interview~
