      Did you file at CSC, or at a district office? Processing times for AOS vary by district (San Francisco tends to be faster than Los Angeles, for example), so if you let people know where you filed you might get more useful information.

      Regarding what to bring to the interview, the AOS appointment notice will have a list of all documents that you should bring (basically, all immigration documents, driver's license or ID card, and passport). If the interview goes well, BCIS stamps your passport at the end of the interview, and the green card follows a few months later in the mail.

        I had a lawyer prepared my case so I have no idea where it was sent.

        I heard that now. they rarely stamp your passport unless they have clear your background check. Ppl has to wait for months in order to get their passport stamped. Plus after that I need to wait 2 yrs to remove my conditonal GC.

          Your application should have been filed with the District Office (because it's a marriage-based I-130/I-485). Which district you are in depends on where you reside.

          You are correct, if your fingerprints have not cleared, they cannot stamp your passport at the interview. Because of the heightened security concerns and background checks, clearance takes longer. If the passport can't be stamped at the interview, CIS will mail out a notice after the interview, advising the applicant that the I-485 has been approved, and to come in to the office to get the passport stamped. CIS collects the EAD card at that time, if the applicant has one.

          Lastly, even if the approval is conditional, CIS will stamp the approval in the passport, and a conditional GC will follow in the mail.

            My friend filed her case at SF and approved before 6 months. She already received her actual greencard which only took 3 weeks from her AOS interview, which they said it might take up to 6 months. Her passport was stamped. Its quite an easy journey for her
