Like any other alien in the US, having a greencard is probably the one thing that I aspire for. Well, it is second to having a job though. It is a long and tedious process, but it is worth it.
My greencard journey has finally come to an end this morning. I had my AOS interview appointment at the USCIS Orlando Office. I, together with my husband and daughter, came to the USCIS building just in time — 5 mins. before appointment. We waited in the lobby for 2-3 minutes, and then my name was called.
It was very casual. The adjudication officer was pleasing and friendly. After the hi’s and hello’s, his first statement was — “Your case in already done. All I need to do is get your I-94 and EAD”. When we heard this, we already knew that we were approved. There was no question-and-answer about personal marital stuffs. He did not even ask for ANY proof of relationship at all. It was more on the Yes-and-No part of the form we filled up. Then, he verified my name, SSN, home address and phone number. In about 10 minutes, we were out of his office door. Before we left, we confirmed the result of the appointment, and he said “Yes, you are approved”.
To those who has yet to undergo their AOS interview, good luck! Break a leg!
