  • Green card Interview! :-)

    Just thought I would share my experience with everyone that are going through the process.
    - Met my husband in 2000 (same school and a USC)
    - Graduated in 2001 with BA
    - Applied for EAD
    - Worked for company for a year before they
    decided to sponser (H-1)
    - H-1 approved
    - Left company because of other employees bad
    business practices
    - Married husband in 2003
    - Applied for AOS
    - Interviewed with company currently working for
    - Applied for EAD approved 3 months later
    - Received Notice for Interview on Jan 10th 05
    - Interview on March 15th 05

    We went in with an attorney and the officer asked us the basic questions:

    What's your full name
    Where do you live
    When did you get married
    How did you meet

    Then looked at our Company letters and last 3 pay stubs. Only needed husbands last 3 years of Tax Info. We got the transcripts from IRS.
    He looked at a few pictures and that was it.

    He didn't stamp my passport because my finger prints that I took on Oct 03 had expired in Jan 05 (**only good for 15 months**). So he scheduled an appointment for the same day at a local office (electronic finger printing). I should get card within the next month. (Hopefully) Its a Conditional green card so in 2 years we will have to get the condition removed. :-)

    Good luck to you all! And thanks for all the help.

      Congrats for the good news.

      One question though, since your wedding occurs in 2003, won't the Condition on your GC be removed on the 2nd year anniversary (translate to sometimes this year) instead of 2 years from the approval date ?

        Thanks! We got married in 03 and applied for AOS then too. But didn't get approved until March 15th 05. I guess we are still considered newly weds regardless of how long we were together. So the 2 years of 'conditional' starts either on the 15th or when I get the card ...not sure
        The attorney had made us aware of this before we went in so it was ok.

          How did you get AOS? is that based on employment where your employer has to post the position for a week?

            Applied for AOS through marriage. I remember that my previous employer had to post my position for a week (or more) for my H-1. (don't quite remember)

              From what I have heard you should get a permanent Green Card if you have been married for two year at the time of your interview.

              I may be wrong about that but you should probably investigate.

              Good luck.

                I think the permanent green card is a moot point since at the time of interview, the marriage hasn't reached the 2 years period.

                Do question about the lawyer more about when the condition on your green card should be removed though (at 2 yr anniversary of the wedding, or 2 years after the approval of conditional gc).
