we filed ours last dec 14th last yr and to tell you the people there are totally nice. this lady that accepts the petition at window 25 is very helpful and will let you correct wrong inputs on the form in a very respectful way. she even lent me her glue and sticky notes. i know, preparing the docs is a big pain in the a** but we couldn't afford to hire one lol. advice would be, if you have a cr2/1r2 you have to make two sets of every documents you have. that was our main mistake. good luck!

A Tip:

When you get to the DS-260 Form, do not opt to have them send your info to the Social Security Administration.

The SSA linkage is very unreliable, as agreed by staff in the SSA Office.

 

Just apply for your social security number when you get to America.

 

We got ours in five business days that way.

 

Also, when you get the immigration package, be sure to review the information on the Immigration Data Summary cover page.

Make sure the name and address data is correct BEFORE you leave for America.

And be doubly sure to tell the CBP Officer at point of entry the correct information.

That is the last time in the established process that you are expected/offered to correct it most easily.

If you miss that opportunity it can get tough to get the data changed later without major delays in getting your social security card/number or green card.
