Local US CIS Office Review: Buffalo NY
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : October 18, 2011
Embassy Review : We got to our 2:45 pm interview at 2:15 and went through security. We were told to go to window four and the gentleman there told us to go to the second floor and sign in and wait for our names to be called. There was 3 other people waiting in front of us. We waited about 30-40 minutes and then were called in. The gentleman was very nice and we sat down in his office and he went over our address and birthdays and took garnette's I-94. He asked garnette how did we meet. And then asked me where did we marry and who was there. He then asked for us to submit proof of marriage so we gave him our joint checking account information, credit card, gym membership and cell phone bill. He asked about our lease and asked why garnette was not on it and I said it was because he did not have a job at the time. He say that is fine and went and copied some of our pictures. He said our case looks approvable and we should be getting the green card in the mail 5-10 business days.
Harassment Level : Very Good

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
