Default Is this a record for AOS in Houston??

I am proud to report that my daughter and I are now the proud possessors of the required stamp in our passports and was told by the Immigration officer that it was the fastest application she had ever seen processed..

Time line as follows:-

17th March 2002 AOS application mailed to Houston
22nd March 2002 confirmed by Houston as official filing date
7th May 2002 attended service centre for fingerprinting
17th July 2002 attended Houston for AOS interview

Interview was straightforward. Appointment was at 8.40am. We were seen by 9.10am and back out on the street by 10am.

What do y'all think - is this a record??

You didn't say what type of visa you entered the USA with, but if it was a K-1 (and
K-2 for your daughter) then this is not a record. It would have been two years ago,
but since the winter of 2001 the Houston office has been giving expedited AOS
processing to K-1 adjusters, with most of these lucky individuals getting final
interviews within 3 months of original filing.

If your visa was a type other than a K-1, then yeah you are pretty close to a record
(as far as I've read on this newsgroup).

Regards, Tim

Oh yeah I did mean to put what kind of visa it was - sorry....

Yes it was K1 and K2 and I've obviously not been keeping up with whats been happening in Houston then with the expedited service. Thats great for all us new filers but isn't that going to put those already in the queue even further behind??

And I paid for an EAD that I never got and they wouldn't give me back me money - theft I call it!!
