6) Interview Month: Apr 2001 (Passport was stamped)
7) Total Duration: 30 months.

Interview Details: The interview lasted for about 45minutes. The officer asked the
following questions together. But I think they are lot of questions.After all these
string of questions he took my fingerprints for I-551 card and stamped my passport.
We were told that it takes about 6-8 months to get the actual I-551 card if
everything goes ok (?).

8) Where did you meet each other?
9) How did you meet each other?

18) Show us your employment letters.
19) Is your marriage Love/Arranged marriage.
20) Where did you go to school.
21) What is your occupation.
22) Why did you apply through your spouse not through your employer.
23) Asked the standard questions from the I-485 form.

I consider this a long interview. But hope this helps people out there. I think INS
is tightening the rope in this new administration. Some of my friends went through
their spouses in the last administration and the whole interview was over in 10
minutes with couple of questions.
