Event Description
Review Date : November 19, 2012
Embassy Review : WE stayed at the jardines de teadro nice hotel for $60 everything close by. We couldnt sleep the day of the interview and woke up too early. got there at 645 am made the line got inside got ticket number 41. by 8am got called to hand in banco popular,passport and police certificate. then sent over for finger prints. sat down aroung 9;30 got called back to window 25 african american nice man swore us in and asked us how and when we met. if we had children together or apart? asked us for pictures and then asked my husband if has ever been petinioned or married both were yes and asked what happened he explained asked us to sit back down. at 10;30 am got called again the fraud room. he was sent in first.questions were as follow:
what color is ur wife toothbrush? what side of the bed did you sleep on? what airline and what time i arrived? my sons age? our ages and date of birth? where we are staying? how much we payed and who is paying for the hotel? who showed first last night? what we slept with last night? did we have sex? condoms?how many tattoos we have? when i go visit where do i stay?what did i bring him on this trip? on his bday? last time i was there? our first kiss and our first sexual experience together who payed that day and where? where i work my work hours and how i get there? type of car i have and how much is my rent?
Then he called me in asked me the same questions we got all of them correct it was weird cause we had the exact same answers/explanations everything and then he told me to take good care of my husband cause he was one of the good ones and told my hubby not to go to NY to sell drugs!!
We went back out and waited til 11;30 they called us back to window 25 and told us we were approved go pay domex and now we wait hope this helps. just want to thank everyone becuase if i didnt read many of the cases here i would of never even payed attention to the stuff that they asked in the interview like the toothbrush etc.....goodluck to all!! overall the experience wasnt that bad its the waiting around that killed us! questions if u know ur partner should be easy also alot of approvals that day...
Rating : Very 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
