    OK guys, I did it! Interview completed. It was really smooth and pleasant, as expected. The IO was very friendly and it did not feel like an interrogation by any means. We were not asked anything besides how we met and the YES/NO questions on my I-485. I did not ask if it was approved or not, but he said that because we have been married less than 2 years, I would get a conditional GC. So I assume that's good news? Lol. Anyway, good luck to anyone having theirs coming up!

    Hi There - good luck. Some call outs based on your list:

    1. you need to take a marriage certificate (certified original). you mention a marriage license which is not the same thing. you can usually get certified documents at the country administration office.
    2. In addition to photos of the wedding, make sure you have photos of trips you took together.

    Good luck!
    Thanks for pointing that out! The license and certificate are not 2 separate papers in the county we got married in, that's why I typed license. The judge signed the "license" which I guess became a "certificate" upon signing. And it is a certified copy.

    Hello - We had our interview yesterday. It was about 30 minutes long. Officer was extremely friendly and it was very smooth. We had a lot of supporting documents and he asked some basic questions like our wedding anniversary date, how we celebrated and some questions about our pets. He looked through our vacation photos, wedding photos and invitations. He also asked a bit about the number of countries we had visited together and some parts about our trip. He also asked us both about each other's jobs. At the end of the interview, he said he had all he needed to make a decision and wished us both well. I had brought new medicals just in case he needed them but he did not ask for them. I also brought every copy of every document I could think of. He did grab our joint tax return for 2018. A few hours after the interview, the status online flipped to new card has been ordered and I'm now hoping to get it end of the week!

    I wish everyone here well and good luck. Happy new year and I hope the next decade brings wonderful things to you all.

    Hi Aj9188,

    1. Bring a copy of the I130 for your reference during the interview, and the receipt notice. Since you filed concurrently, the interviewer will make a decision on your I130 after the interview.

    2. Marriage certificate + US passport and birth certificate of spouse + your passport and birth certificate.

    Hello - I need some advice.

    1. I am putting together my documents in preparation for the interview and I only have my 1-130 receipt notice. Am I supposed to have an approval as well? I concurrently filed I-485 and I-130 since I am already in the USA when I filed.
    2. There is a checklist line item in the immigration notice that reads "All documentation establishing your eligibility for lawful permanent resident status". I'm interpreting this as bring copies of the I-485 and I-130 that was submitted.Am i correct? is there anything else that falls under this category i should bring? Obviously I will have ceritified marriage certificate and other documents they asked for but wasn't clear what this specific line meat.

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi,

    When I check my case status vis USCIS website it shows Case Was Transferred And A New Office Has Jurisdiction on Oct 18, 2019. My address is in Seattle, so I guess my interview shall take place in the Seattle office. I see from previous posts that the interview date is usually given within 2 months after the case is transferred to the local office. It is now just over 2 months and still didn't got any interview date. Anyone else in this group faced delay in scheduling the AOS interview? Is it a matter of concern?

    Below is my timeline

    PD I-485 Aug 02, 2019 (EB2- employment-based) (I-140 and I-485 concurrent processing)
    Biometrics Sep 04, 2019
    Case was transferred and a new office has jurisdiction Oct 18, 2019



    Thanks

    I did my medical exam yesterday and wanted to share how it went, maybe it helps someone. I called 5 offices from the USCIS list. Two of them had the earliest available appointment at the end of January. One of them was in the process of moving their offices. The other two had appointments available next day, so I asked about the price and whatnot. First one said it is a flat fee of $400 and then up to $800, based on which vaccines are needed. OK, that sounded about right, in the same price range I've seen other people paid. But I decided to give a call to the last office and turns out, their flat fee was $280, plus any vaccines on top of that and they were available next day. Great!

    I went to that office, filled out a shot form and presented my vaccination record I had brought from Europe. They took an urine and then blood samples, measured my height and weight, and that was it. Turns out I only needed the flu shot and the tDap since all other vaccines had been done, per my record. They gave me the option of getting the vaccines there or going wherever else I wanted. I decided to go do them at Costco, which ended up being $20 for the flu shot and $42 for the tDap. The doctor said it will take 3-4 days to get the lab work done and they'll call me back when it's done. So, all in all, the medical was $342 before the insurance kicked in.

    This morning I got a notice, I130 - interview completed and case must be reviewed: I485- new card is being produced. Is this a typical scenario?
    Congratulations for your green card !!!

    Yes, that how it should be. Once I-485 is approved then the I-130 will be changed to approved.
