Harassment Level : Low


Local US CIS Office Review: Denver CO
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : April 15, 2006
Embassy Review : The interviewer was very thorough and asked the usual date of birth, names of parents questions followed by when we met and the list of terrorist/spy questions. About 20 minutes - he was very nice and ordered the biometrics for the same day (they were scheduled 2 weeks after the AOS interview.) He kept almost all of the proof of relationaship (about 10 items - bank statements, health insurance bills, cards, dental cards, visa card etc.) He said he will mail a letter in 3 to 4 weeks - that's how long he thought the biometrics results might take. It took exactly 8 weeks to get the email of approval.
Harassment Level : 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
