Comments : According to my fiance, the interview was straight forward. We anticipated almost all the questions they would ask and she had prepared her answers well ahead of the interview. Most importantly, she was totally honest and this had the most positive effect on the CO. If you make their job more difficult, the consular officers will make it tough for the applicant. Being honest is everything during these interviews.

*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
