Comments : Her interview only lasted about 15 minutes they just made sure the papers were right name address and such. Asked her how she liked the states and how it compares to Cambodia? Then said your approved and since my wife is traveling back to Cambodia in a few days they took her ap and stamped her passport. I think it went smoothly because we walked in holding hands and when we sat down her son wanted to sit with me. Plus everyone that meets us always says they can tell we are inlove

Consulate Review: Cambodia
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : November 6, 2011
Embassy Review : For us things went pretty smooth. They asked me a few questions about Theary like where we meet why I want to marry here how many times I had come to visit her. then they interview her they asked about My work how much money I made how long I have worked there what I did for work. Then they asked how we meet if she knew about my kids and if she knew my ex wife name (why I dont know). Interview lasted about 15 minutes. The only issue we had was we brought her son to the interview but not pictures of him younger so we had to go home and get pictures of them when he was younger or do a dna test. I would suggest if you have kids involved to do the dna test about a month in advance or bring pictures with you.
Long story short we were approved that day, after we brought the evidence they wanted.
We were the lucky ones there was one couple I talked to they have been trying for 3 yrs it was their 4th interview. Not sure if they got approved they were told to come back a few days later. I would say less then half the people were approved.
The staff was friendly but you can tell they are very serious about there job.
Rating : 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.
