Event Description
Review Date : January 7, 2012
Embassy Review : My Fiancee interview went overall OK on 1/5/11. They asked her over 15+ questions about me and our relationship. I am so greatful to the posting on VJ regarding the reviews on interview questios asked by the USE. A little preping went a long way, thanks to VJ. I understand that 15+ questions is not the norm for Addis, usually they only ask a few and the average interview only last about 5 to 10 mins. My case was a bit different from the average situation. USCIS did not reconised my current marrage to her, so my initiall I-130 was denied in Feb 2011. I had to refile for her under the K-1 VISA. The most inportant thing is she is approved and now we can finally start our life together.

*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
