My wife arrived there as almost last in the line. I can see through her QQ mobile phone. The temperature is 88F. She turned in the documents and the Chinese lady ask if I had file taxes with my father. My wife told her that she didn't knew and I haven't said anything about taxes. My wife gotten a appointment for the next day at 0730. My mother in law was knitting at the 3rd Floor, lol.

Called my wife and said she is at the middle of the line. I called her at 0952 and said she had pass. She said the VO is very social guy and only asked two questions. First is how did we meet and second is who is this person's name (my father). He gave her the white paper and took the passport. My wife noted they also speak Taishanese.

*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
