I Am Done!!!

United States

I got sworn in today in Atlanta. I am going to try and give you a low down on the process and I'll post my timeline at the end.
I got in at 9:45 am ( that was my appointment time), but they don't hold it down real fast.
I dropped off my appoinmment letter and finally got called in at 11.20am.
The interview process is rather simple: he asked me questions on the form ( have u ever been a member of a communist party etc).
Here's the good news, if he/she asks you to start sgning stuff, you are on your way, don't trip yourself now.

Interview in Milwaukee Approved

United States

Hey people, finally got approved after the priority date got current. had my interview in milwaukee, yesterday 5/17. i noticed while i waited for him to finish something else that the approved stamp was already placed on the file in front of the desk. i verified to see if it was the same A number as mine and it was. so after a minute he simply took my signature and fingerprint on an unfilled form which i hope he filled out later while he was still on the phone. he then proceeded to tell me that all was well and i could go.

Green Card: 

GC for Parents - AOS and CP - Information Source

United States

One can petition for parents only if the petitioner is US Citizen. GC holder or LPR cannot apply for parents.

Parents cases of USC are processed differently from the Spouse of USC though they come under the same category.

If parents are already in US, they can go thru the AOS process or CP.

If parents are outside of US, they can go thru the CP only.

For Whom Are You Petitioning?

For AOS or CP, I-130 is the common form.

Interview in Los Angeles

United States

Our interview was at the Federal Building in Los Angeles at 11am

I got a call from my attorney’s office at 8am saying he was taken ill to the hospital during the night and he can’t make it to the interview. The office said we can go by ourselves or they could postpone the interview.

After speaking with my wife we decided to go by ourselves. Part of me thought, “what a way to start the day” and another part of me was glad because I always thought taking an attorney might show that we had something to hide.
