Interview Questions:

The officer didn’t ask many questions. the interview is summarized below. ( Took around 25 mins)
1. The first question she asked was in Year 2014, you have three H1 approvals and for which employer where you working.
I told her that Employer A filed for my extension in 2014 and I worked with Employer A till September 2014 and after that joined Employer B and I worked till December 2014. And EY also had filed for H1 but I joined them in January 2015.
2. Looks like many employers were competing for you.
I said , “Yes”. I was SME and work in niche area in IFRS and US GAAP auditing, Creating P &L, balance sheets etc.
I gave her H1 approvals for all employers in 2014 year, also all H1 approval I-797 from 2002 till 2017.
3.After that she just saw my original Birth certificate, marriage certificate and Baby’s birth certificate.
I gave her copy of the my Certificate and my daughter US passport card, birth certificate and Baby's US passport.
She asked me when did I join back work after delivery. I said after 7 weeks and then I gave her Current Employer H1B amendment approval for New Client Location and she took the document.

Then baby started crying and she told she is almost done.
To my husband she asked following questions.

1. I see that you were working in UK. do you work now.
He responded that he is currently not working. I added to his comment saying that his EAD expired on December 30 and didn’t get the approval on time hence had to resign and he would rejoin now.
IO asked if he got the EAD approval. We said yes.

IO started checking my passport and asked me why I went to Shanghai seeing my China visa.
I told her that I was working for Employer A and it was business trip to visit client. she scanned through my Sweden, Germany, UK and Denmark stamping and I told her that it was all business visit.

The baby was getting restless and I told her that We just came back from India on April 21 and the baby is jet lagged. She asked was it a family trip, I said “ Yes”
I gave her AP approval with stamping and Passport stamping copy which she said it’s not required.

she said she will just take 3 more minutes and she is done.
She took our pics and index finger print and I asked her if she needed any documents from me for which she said no.

I asked if she needs Employment verification letter for which IO asked is it recent. I said it’s current and gave her a copy and asked if she needs client letter. she said “No. I see you have all the documents and have come over prepared that’s is good.( IO did not ask any questions on current employment, Job or Pay slips)

At end of the Interview, She gave us notice of Interview Results and said she will take some time to review the case and that we will get the response in mail within 30 days. she does not require any additional documents.

Its 21 days as of May 17, I was getting really concerned as my Medical was about to expire and had to again renew EAD etc. I had schedule Info pass on May 22 but as per my attorney advice I again reached out to my Congresswomen on May 14 Monday and explained about my Medical expiry date. Congresswomen emailed me today afternoon that she had contacted Newark Field Office alerting them about the expiration date of medical and the Congressional Liaison responded that the Officer is currently completing the adjudicating Process and that I would hear Good News soon. Within 2 hours, my case status changed to I-485 approved and New Card in Production.

Thanks for reading my lost post, to those who are waiting for your EAD/AP approval, Interview Notice or I-485 approval, when you feel you are in Blackhole and waiting time creates frustration, fear and anxiety when online status is same for months, Please reach out to your Congressperson and have them follow up for you to get updates.
Once again I take this opportunity to THANK each and every one of you for sharing your Thoughts, Guidance, Concerns, fear and JOY/Peace. All the Best for Speedy GC approval. THANK YOU !!
