I AM A US CITIZEN AND I APPLIED FOR FAMILY BASED GREEN CARD FOR MY WIFE. THE WHOLE PROCESS STARTED IN FIRST WEEK OF JANUARY 2009. INITIALLY WE HAD APPLIED ON OUR OWN AND DID NOT CONSULT ANY ATTORNEY. THEN WE GOT AN RFE ON MY WIFE’S BIRTH CERTIFICATE, AND WE WERE HELPLESS AND DID NOT KNOW HOW TO PROCEED. THAT IS WHEN WE APPROACHED, RAJIV KHANNA. HIS ATTORNEY’S MATHEW CHACKO AND BHARATHI GUIDED US FOR SUBMITTING THE RFE DOCUMENTS AND GUIDED US IN EACH AND EVERY STEP AFTER THAT. THEIR GUIDANCE WAS OF GREAT HELP TO US. AND FINALLY MY WIFE GOT HER GC ON 24TH APRIL 2009.

I-485 (EAD, AP, FP)

Aliens who are physically present in the United States already are allowed to immigrate without leaving the United States to apply for an immigrant visa. This process is called Adjustment of Status (AOS).  The USCIS will permit an application for AOS to be filed only if an immigrant visa is immediately available to the alien. Section 245(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) governs the general AOS provisions.

Seattle DO AOS Interview Experience

I went for my interview, which went well. No surprises with a nice officer.
The common, have you ever questions...no no no no!
We were asked about the spouse's siblings,our honeymoon, when and how we met, how long we'd been dating before marriage, but nothing tricky.
Quite easy I would say.

The officer checked Id's, last taxreturn with W-2s, updated address (because we moved), marriage cert.

Alright,  first off thank you to everyone that helped me out with what to bring!
We showed up with about 30 pounds of paperwork, photos, tax returns, wedding albums, cards.

Our appointment was at 1 pm, we arrived around 12:15. We got in the lineup, and waited. and waited and waited. (got a little warm considering it is still in the high 80s, 90s) At about 12:55 they let us in along with a swarm of other people coming in for the same thing (and some naturalization cases) We signed in, and waited right up at the door to be called.

As I got my approval/551 stamp this week, I thought it would be best to share some experience to help others; This may be applicable in Texas and
Atlanta, so read with caution and use accordingly.
