Winter Park, FL asked in Immigration Law for Florida

Q: Our IO after our marriage green card interview said our case was "approvable" but he needed to review. Is this bad?

My husband and I had our marriage green card interview today. We were asked some standard basic questions about our relationship. And our IO asked my husband a lot of questions about his government/military career back in his country (Nigeria), mainly if he had ever used weapons or trained with weapons and if he had ever violated any human rights. He answered honestly that he had never used any weapons, and never had any weapons training. My husband was nervous but he answered everything truthfully. At the end of the interview, the officer said that everything looked approvable but he needed to review everything. He said we would either receive a letter stating any further documentation needed or we would receive the green card in the mail. My husband feels this is a bad sign and he thinks he will be denied. Any insight you can give would be much appreciated.

A: Please do not worry. Just because they would like to take some time to review does not mean that you will be denied. If you do not receive an approval letter, you should receive a letter with instructions. If you do not receive a letter within 90 days you should call the customer service number. If you need further assistance after the letter arrives I will be happy to help. Best to you.
