Cold weather forced a closure on the office when I was scheduled to interview. They attempted to reschedule me to March 19 but I managaed to convince them to let me go in that day, so my interview was actually 1/29/19. No obivious reason why the CPO date took so long. more details in the post. 03/18/2019

2nd, we filed form I-360, which was not necessary and were told to withdraw from that process in order to continue processing our DV adjustment of status. We think that this delayed or process, and made our case go to another center. Did inquiries, contacted congressman and also de Ombudman, and these processes got our case going. Strongly recommend doing this as soon as the "normal processing period" (which I believe is 6 months) ends and you can start with that, it makes officers "remember" your case and keeps it going

I hope everyone is well and that all your AOS packages are coming along nicely. I just had my interview today, and low and behold, it was approved in the room at the end of the interview. YAY! It was a fairly low key interview (even though I was shockingly nervous) at the Los Angeles Office, and the interviewer was a very nice guy. After providing my original documents - Birth Cert, Passport (Expired and Current), and the KCC payment print out, and my original Bachelors and Masters Degree - All went very quickly. Do note that - He made a small issue out of the KCC payment receipt, because KCC emailed the documents back to me, not mailed, so it was not the original. But if you are in the same boat as me, just politely advise your interviewer that this has become pretty standard practice now. He seemed to understand that this was the case. Also - I was so glad that I had my parents international mail me both my Actual (A3 paper) original Degrees. I almost did not do it, for fear of damaging the important documents, but he said it was good that I did. I had them in a smallish poster roll, and it was fine. (just make sure you advise security what it is before they ask, so they don't think it is something other than a poster package with paperwork in it. :) The interviewer asked a few questions about my current employment, and made sure I was at the same address, then he just went through all the yes/no questions on the I-485. After that, we had a little chat and laugh about how his office was full of paper work, stack upon stack, and then he said he would just do some quick work on his PC. After that, he came back with a print out of the congratulations letter and advised me I was approved and I should receive my GC in the mail soon. In the end it was a very nice interview. All I can say is be polite, respectful, sincere, humble, pay attention and make eye contact, and your interviewer will likely give you the same respect and care (oh, and of course, have all your original documents and a full copy of your submitted package on hand). Ultimately, the interviewers are simply people like everyone, and are hard-working government officials, and they tend to do this work because they truly care about what they are doing, and making a difference for people. So as long as you give them no reason to question your application through silly mistakes, arrogance, or insincerity, they will meet you half way. :) ******* I wanna send out a massive shout out and thank your to Sm1smom and the rest of the awesome team that contribute and moderate this group and the connecting AOS Website & Spreadsheet. I could not have done this with out you guys, and I deeply thank you. This is an incredible resource and it is so selfless of you all to provide your knowledge and time. Please let me/us know if there is anything we can do to support your efforts in the future. ******* ...some of my interviewer's final comments were - "Did you put this whole package together yourself?"I said "Yes, but with the help of a wonderful online forum and community."He followed with "Well you did a great job. This is the best prepared DV Adjustment of Status application I have seen." I cannot think of better praise for all this combined hard work - So Kudos to you guys and thanks again. :) Tim 6/12/20189/27/2018

We were called by the officer and taken an oath. He asked our passports and EAD cards. Then first I was asked my name and DOB then few questions from AOS form, later my husband was also asked some questions from the form. and then we both got same security questions from the I 485 form. he looked at our documents. He asked how we met. We had one part unfilled by our doctor in the medical exam and the IO told that he cannot approve it unless it is checked. Then he said he will contact with the doctor and make the correction. We completed our interview and by tihe time we reached to our home he called by saying that he made the correction and approved the case. At night we have seen the change in the website!

The ISO was friendly but straightforward. Be prepared for the interview! My husband and I went over every single question before the interview day and double checked if we knew our important dates (port of entry date, our marriage date, child's DOB, dates of employment, etc.), which was very helpful. The ISO went through every single question on our I-485 forms and worked on both of our applications at the same time. We weren't approved on spot, the ISO told us that he needed our files from KCC and within 30 days we would get a response. On 6/2 my husband's and on 6/3 my case status changed to"New card is being produced." If you are F-1 student, I'd recommend to bring all of your previous and current I-20s to prove that you've been maintaining your status.

The interview itself was very detailed – so be prepared as it lasted approx. 1 hr! The FO went through all the questions on the 485 form for both adults - my wife and I. Kids were excused, and he explained that since they were under 13 (or 14 can’t remember exactly) they will not be interviewed. At the end we made a few corrections on both forms relating to traffic citations that we had answered no. Again, the FO was very good and explained that this question now requires you to include even traffic citations. At the end he explained that he had requested for our file from the State Dept and once he receives it, he will make his decision or send an RFE. He also mentioned that if he approves our applications, we should receive our GC in 10-15 days and lo and behold…just as promised we all (my wife and 2 kids+me) received four approval notices in the mail after 5 days! So finally, we received the CPO message but only for 3 cards instead of 4 and the 3 GCs arrived 2 days later. My wife’s GC has not arrived yet, despite having received the approval notice. I am hoping we will receive this soon so we can all move to enjoying life as PRs! Good luck to all still waiting for their GCs and hope you will be able to share your experience soon!6/8/20189/27/2018

We arrived at 7:00am, there was a bit of a line up at security but it was moving pretty fast. We got upstairs at 7:15am and sat down not realizing that we had to check in. After 10 minutes of sitting down I walked out of the room and on one wall I noticed that we had to check in first. We all went to the check in counter and there were only 2 families in front of us. By the time we checked in it was 7:55am. We went back to the interview waiting room and waited for our names to be called.

We got called at 8:15am, the FO asked us to divide into 2 groups, we have 4 kids. My husband went in first with the boys as as he's the winner. He just asked my husband to see our marriage certificate, a bill showing both our names on it and his and the boys passports. He went over a few of the yes/no questions and asked if he still works for the same company. After 20 minutes my husband came out and the FO called me in with the girls. He asked me for our passports, if I had a SSN and a few of the yes/no questions. At the end he told me that visa's are still available and that he needs to contact KCC for our file and that in 2 weeks we should receive our green card.

When we left about 2 hours later our case was updated to "MY INTERVIEW WAS COMPLETED AND MY CASE MUST BE REVIEWED" it got me really nervous but I searched on this forum and found out that it was normal. This morning we got another text "MY NEW CARD IS BEING PRODUCED".

It was due to their system converting my submitted address to an invalid one.

It was VERY casual. We joked a little in the process, went over all the questions in the form. It took about 15-20 minutes total. I didn't have to show him the letters I prepared from the employers. At the end he said that he intends to approve my case in the afternoon. Then he mentioned a local business that he is fond of in the Art scene of our city and asked if I am familiar with it, and I was, so we had a lil chat and he let me go!!

He said the last time he processed a DV case was long time ago. He requested the following: EAD (spouse), passports and visas, marriage certificate, DOS fee proof (which we received by email - he confirmed with someone else whether it was ok or not), letter from University showing current enrollment of F1. Asked for current address and DOBs several times during the interview. Asked for copy of our current lease (which we did not have with us), and also pictures of us (like this were a marriage based case), but I believed the officer realized these were not necessary for our case. He basically went through all I-485 questions. It took around 70-min overall. It was approved on the spot. Thanks to all who make this forum such a valuable open resource!!!N/A2/3/20192/6/2019

The Field Officer was very nice. He called me in and said you won the DV lottery. Thats like winning the actual lottery. He asked if I was comfortable speaking English and I told him I was. Asked for my College Degree copy and he made copies of my EAD card and Passport. Went through the questions on form i485 and asked me when was my last entry to the US. In the end he said that everything I told him was accurate and I would get a decision in the mail within 2-3 weeks. Received approval email/text 4 days later. My suggestion is to know what you wrote on youre i485 including dates and take all required documents. All the best everyone !!N/A

- Only person who takes care of diversity visa cases: he mentioned that he got a lot more submissions recently and showed me a pile of folders on his desk - there is probably a bunch of you there.

It was over in 15min:
- Oath; you have to do that standing up! Don't get comfortable too quickly ;)
- Asked for my passport and driver's license - he made copies on the way out
- Only requested the docs pointed out in the G-56 Notice: Employment verification letter + new pay stubs + original birth certificate
- Went through the I-485 to confirm address, full name, birth date, a few of the Yes/No questions
And that was it.

At the end, he hand delivered me a notice to say that my case was under review but mentioned said that's normal procedure before he puts the approval in the system and I should expect status updates in the afternoon.
I talked about my next travel and told me I should call the USCIS 800 number to get a stamp once I get approved but said I might not need it since GC would arrive fairly quickly in the mail.

She only needed to see my current passport and proof that I had paid the $330 fee to the Department of State. After that, we went through my I-485 together, and she added an international trip that I had taken after the original submission (I was on an H-1B at the time, and so there was no risk of abandoning my application).

One week later I received another letter requesting me to attend another interview on 9/18 and they have requested me to provide further evidences and documentation that is specific to my case – so nothing generic that I can share in here.
I attended the second interview on 9/18 and that was even more stressful then the first one. It took about 3.5 hours, I have been asked all the questions that is related to my pending status with USCIS and also about my military service, about my previous trips to the U.S and other countries, and many many other questions. The officer was straight forward somehow very serious, but professional at the same time. At the end she said she still need to do further review and that will let me know the decision by mail and assured to me that they are aware of the DV timeline, so I could do nothing at this point other than wait and see!
Today the miracle happened, everything changed in the USCIS rapidly. From case approved, to new card produced and mailed. I just can’t believe that it happened at the end.

It lasted about 15 minutes. Took an oath at the beginning. The officer asked for my current and previous passports and ID (driver's license in my case), as well as interview letter. She then began going through the entire application form I-485, ending with a series of yes/no questions. I made sure that I maintained eye contact with her and not constantly looking at the form while she was asking the questions. She had me sign the form at the end, and handed me a paper in which she checked the box "your case is being held for review", meanwhile she kindly informed me that she is going to approve my case, she just needed to do some paperwork etc. She looked quite strict during the Q&A process, however in the end, she was very friendly and smiley, she commented that they don't have a lot of Diversity applicants in their office, and that I am very lucky to get it. I am just glad that my officer is familiar with the diveristy program, and really grateful that the whole procesure went smoothly. Came back home in the evening and checked my case status, it said "card is being produced". Thanks everyone who contributed info to this spreadsheet and on the forum, all these are immensely helpful!! 5/20/20193/28/2019

It was about 15-20 minutes total. I was asked to provide my passport, SSN, EAD Card, driver's license and the interview letter of course. Officer was extremely friendly, and high-fived me for winning the lottery. I was made to take an oath and then we began. Essentially he went over my ENTIRE original submission including all of the supporting documents with me. He scanned through everything quickly (only stopped at my birth certificate, job offer letter, and college degree). He confirmed my job start dates again, and took my paystubs from the last 3 months. (PLEASE bring your last 3 paystubs considering all this recent public charge drama going on.) We then proceeded to go over my i-485 application and he just confirmed my name, DOB, address, and other stuff as we went along. We went through all the yes/no questions, where when he got to the 'citation' question - I disclosed my recent speeding ticket and provided him with a copy. He took the copy of the ticket and wrote detailed notes, however he assured me it won't be an issue.) That was about it! At the end of the day - he was happy that I had a thorough application, and said that there will not be an issue from his side at all. He just needed to "follow some policies and interface w/ other government agencies". I asked him if he had requested my case from KCC, to which he replied that he will as soon as I leave. I did not inquire about the status of my background check. He repeatedly assured me that he is very aware of the September 30th deadline, and informed me that the USCIS is also conscious of the deadline as a whole and is working fast to get the applications processed. I also asked about how to contact him (local FO doesn't allow infopass or anything) - to which he told me to relax and that if there's anything he needs - he will send it to me in the mail!. That was that! Important to note my lawyer also attended the interview, which personally was a peace of mind factor for me. She really didn't do anything other than take notes, but she joked around the IO which contributed to the light atmosphere.

Next morning, I got up and habitually checked my case status --> and it said card is being produced! That's it! :)

Officer asked me to provide original passport, birth certificate (with translation) ID. I took an oath. Before interview started he asked me to show him interview invitation letter.He then asked me some basic questions from i-485 (name, DOB, date of last entry to country, what kind of visa i had then, confirmed SSN and wanted to see original, he also asked me to see reciept for payment to state department. Then he confirmed my marital status and started to ask some yes/no questions from the form (about 7-8). After that he checked some documents in his file, and asked me if i want to add something. I added my most recent I20, payment reciept for the next quarter, enrollment letter from school, also i showed him my original high school diploma, previous passport with US visas. At the end  of interview,he printed the letter saying that case is under review and since he is aware that all DV cases should be processed by the end of September, he will try to expedite the case. I was leaving the building a little bit upset, since i wanted to be approved on a spot. I imagined to wait the next couple weeks or months for a final decision. However, i checked my status online in the evening and saw the line: "Card was produced". Exactly in one week, i recieved my Green Card.didnot applydidnt submit5/1/2019

The interviewer asked me for my original birth certificate and then went through my entire application form I485 line by line ending with the series of yes/no questions. He asked me why my passport is of a different country than my place of birth, I had to explain to him that my country of birth doesnt offer citizenship by birth. He asked me why I came to the US and what is my current status. Then asked me if I had any new documents to submit which I did. the course I was enrolled in ended after i submitted my AOS package and after that I had gotten a new admission in a new program. I showed him my new I20 and a newly made enrollment verification letter i asked my DSO to prepare. He was going to keep the original I-20 but I told him that I may need it in the future and provided him with the copies I had prepared before the interview. At the end he told me that he has not gone through my application papers yet so he wont be able to approve just yet. At 8:30 pm of the same day as the interview, after about 12 hours after my interview I received an email and a text notification saying that there has been a decision made and new card is being produced. 04/10/201904/19/2019

FO was very kind, perlite and professional. We felt that we are so blessed to have her. She concentrated on her job. We have to provide our marriage certificates, tax documents, pay stubs etc. Then went through usual yes no questions. At the end FO said that we fullfilled everything what they are looking for but she need do a background check, which we were not sure and we kept silance. She walked us to the exit door and she realized we are worried a bit, then she told you will get a letter within next week and you are going to get your green cards and she said take care! Then after 5 days we got email notification saying that our case was approved.
