Comments : interview appointment was at 8:25am. He was called back at 9:30am. The interviewer did not ask for anything that was requested in the letter. He only asked him 6 questions and had him write a sentence. Marked his paper as approved and told us to to return at 2:00pm for the Oath Ceremony. The ceremony was short and sweet and all the immigration folks were very nice and congratulating everyone as we left the building. A total of 128 people were taking their oath today. Atlanta immigration employees have been the best from start to finish.

Embassy Review : Hassan was called in at the time of his interview. He was interviewed by an American and the interview was done in English. He asked him alot of questions about us and how we met and then told him everything was fine. They kept his passport and called him back 2 weeks later to pick it up with his visa.

*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
