Embassy Review : So it beçgan at 5 am, I woke up very anxious and having a horrible mood. Hubby noticed that i was very nerous , and he just hugged me and said that everything will be alright..After that we got there at 640 am, there was a huge line to get in when i saw the line, i almost faint.. but aneways we know a lady from church that is in charge of all the yellow info shirt people (shes the supervisor of all of them).. when we got there we asked for her like she told us and we really didnt haveto make the line she got us in like in 5 minutes…we got lucky number 145 ---when we were inside we sat in the benches for about 20 minutes and they started to call out numbers. And we were called like 5 minutes after they strted calling.---First we were called to window 18. In window 18 they guy asked for hubbys passport, cedula, and 15 dollar receipt..he said he didnt need thepolice certificate because the one i sent in march was still working…He asked howold was hubby, and he answered 22. Then he tried to trick us asking where we lived, and i said de auqel lado becuse i was nervous that i wanst thinking ç and he said Los frailes eso queda cerca de la independencia … and i answered no thats the other side of the capital and he said ok, and then like 20 seconds after i said eso esta por Las Americasss, and he said ahhhhhhh(he wanted to trick us lol) then, he sasked if we had any kids nd we both said noo..and he said after that tengan siete muchacho, and we nsewred we will only have four, seven is too much, then he said go to window 13 and tke the finger prints. Like 735 am we were done with taking the fingerprints… we sat again and waited till we were called. I ws sleepy and hungry, i asked hubby if he could buy me some cofffee i was very concerned about being there tht i didnt wnt to eat….. like at 920am they called number to window 20, and i noticed it was their interview so i paid attention to them to see if they were approved . it was a man with two girls, and then they called another man with a little boy..i saw whn both of the man carried their kids and show them to the CO, and then 145 showed up on the screen,,, I told hubby 145 145 145 juyeeee!!!!!! We were called to window 23……i cant really tell how oldhe ws, ireally didnt notice, and im sure that if i see him agian i wont recognise him..he sworn us,..heasked to say my name and i did.. then he asked me

*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.
