I 751 Good Faith Marriage Waiver Interview Result?

New York, NY |


Could you please let me know whether the immigration officer tells the immigrant whether their I 751 Good Faith Marriage Waiver is approved or not right after the interview? Or do they send out a letter to tell their decision? My immigration officer told me that they have reviewed the whole file, they are satisfied and will let me know of their decision by mail? Is this a bad sign? Please advise.

Thank You.

Maybe. In some cases, No, in others.

It is not unusual for the officer not to provide the decision at the interview. So I wouldn't say that it's a bad sign.


In NYC, most of the time, no.


I always tell my clients not to read too much into what they believe the officer indicates during an Adjustment, I-751, Naturalization, or other immigration interview. Sometimes things may seem gloomy, but an approval arrives in the mail. Sometimes the officer says the case will be approved, but then a request for evidence or denial may arrive in the mail. I would say give it about 30-45 days after your interview, and if there is no answer by then, an inquiry can be made.
