The couple married in 2014 after dating for several years. We provided evidence that the couple had been romantically involved for many years and lived with the wife's parents. We also provided written statements from family members detailing their support for the couple's marriage.
The interview went forward in Los Angeles, where the USCIS officer asked questions about how the couple met, when they decided to get married and who attended the wedding among other topics. Everything went smoothly; however, the officer wanted evidence that the mother's J-1 two-year residency in her home country had been waived. We provided the proof of waiver within a few days, and today we received the approval notice for the adjustment of status.
The client will be a conditional resident for the next two years because the couple's marriage is less than two years old. They will need to file an I-751 during the ninety days immediately preceding the 2017 expiration date.
