Hi Binder,
Sorry for the delayed response. My parents status got updated today (Card/ Document Production). First interview on 11/3 went fine, except that we were missing birth certificate, so the RFE for birth certificate. Once the required documents were submitted on Jan 20, 2017, it got approved.

Congratulations. You didnt submit the birth certificate along with application. If so, you didnt get RFE before the interview was scheduled for birth certificate.

Thanks binder. I didnt submit the birth certificate along with the application. No RFE before the interview, however was asked during the interview, and the RFE followed after the interview.

Hello, I am wondering when you and your parent went to interview, did you bring a translator or if you served as your parents' translator? thank you so much!

Hi thai, I was the translator for my parent's application. However, they do have translators for a few languages on location.

Hi binder, I was asked for non-availability of birth certificate along with 2 affidavits and a secondary evidence for proof of birth.

Thank you so much for your kind reply. So roughly how long was the interview? I guess no tricky questions since it is a parent kid relationship, not spouse relationship.

how come your parents had interview in Nov, but I485 was approved in Jan 2017, was it because of the birth certificate issue? Thank you so much!

Interview was around 20 mins. No tricky questions, except for no birth certificate. After the first interview in Nov 2016, got the RFE for proof of birth, so the follow up for that delayed another 2 months.
