  • BCIS AOS Interviewers

    Do these guys really go through EVERYTHING they get from EVERY I485 applicant? or do they rely on pre-checking before the interview? I am sure some people got away with GREEN CARDS by small errors from the INTERVIEWERS.

    I know the BCIS doesnt have the resources and barely have enough man power to handle the system - but the system CAN'T be that PERFECT.

      Yes they go through all the papers attached to I-485 application. Now it depends upon how far the BCIS Clerk know the job. You are right most of the BCIS Employees are not that much educated in this field.

        Whenever I call the customer service line, nobody knows what I'm talking about. I've requested to talk to an "immigration officer" every time, and they never know much more than the kids answering the phones.
        Have a nice day

          So, if the INTERVIWER have like about 15 mins to do the AOS interview, to make sure everything is there, and there is like dozen things to look at in that 15 mins, thats about 1 min for each document/package with I485, plus the questions they ask...

          This surely welcomes errors to occur, and people to get away with GREEN CARDS... such overstays not to be noticed.

            Most likely the decision of approval will be made prior to the interview. The interview is just a routinecheck with additional questions and to receive your medical exam and.

              So, assuming if they do pre-checks, and the applicant was denied to AOS/Green Card, they would send a letter of denial to the applicant? If No or Maybe, why bother calling the applicant to the interview if such decision is already made? to serve the REJECTION in person?

              or that scenario is unlikely!

                  Based on the documentation you provided to the INS, the officer has a decent idea whether your case is genuine or not. The interview helps them to gauge your marital relationship. If they suspect fraud they will not reject on the spot but rather tell you that they would get back to you. Soon you will have another interview where they will interview you and your spouse separately and they will compare both of your answers. If they feel comfortable they will approve your petition.

                    The issue is nothing to do with marriage with USC, but for general I485 application process. If the interviewer has a decent idea on wether the case is genuine - what exactly happened before the interview, is there an especialist who reviews the application before the interview? or is it simply a clerk who checks if the required documents have been submitted before the interview, and schedules a date for an interview for AOS, and then the interviewer THEN determines the eligibility?

                    Does anyone know?

                      Hi Mo,

                      As long as I understand here .... Well may be someone else might answer you better here ... but there is no way for a specialist to review facts other than provided documents ... unless they hire some private detective .... I think they review provided documents and if you meet all requirements .... That's what they did in my case but once again I didn't file for AOS in USA ... I did DCF outside USA ... Good luck ...

                        Is SEVIS used for background checks for F1 students, or do the interviewers just use I20's provided for status check?

                          Few years back I had a young man, He said he had never been to US He married a girl while she was visiting, married in his home country.
                          When send for background check information came back with his signature. He was denied the visa. He and his wife was in country where he was working for about 6/7 years. in 2001 his case was resolved.
                          Be care full do not play with fire.

                            Ok I misunderstood your question here .... Well I don't know what to say ... it depends ... and don't know about student visa but to be honest with you .... I didn't have police clearance certificate from Russia though I stayed there for 7 yrs ... then didn't do any background check up for me ... I got visa the same day ... they didn't even bother .... I got my visa in 108 days doing DCF .... But .... My friend ...same history .... He has been hanging there for more than a year now .... Still hasn't got visa coz of some background check up through FBI or admin review ... well his case was after Iraq's war ... so don't know ....or may be I got lucky with BCIS ....

                              my point was not related to AOS counselor processing, but AOS in the US - so i think they are different for background checking, because since after 9/11, and the huge rise of illegal immigrants, there is probably more technology and databases available for interviewers in the US - or it may be STILL the same methods 10 years ago - who knows!...

                              This young man you mentioned lied to the immigration? and then was given a chance to resolve his problem? was it a simple error? I thought the old INS was tough as the current BCIS when it comes to false statements
