Comments : UPDATE: SSN received 5 days after arrival in the US and GC received exactly 17 days after arrival. Immigration officer at POE was very friendly!

Lengthy delay at NVC stage due to us not being prepared. We needed police certificates from 4 different countries (!!!) and only started applying for them after receiving our IV bill from NVC. One of the police certificates took 2 months to produce. Process could have been shortened significantly if we started gathering the police certificates at USCIS stage.
Estimates/Stats :
Your I-130 was approved in 39 days from your NOA1 date.

Your interview took 286 days from your I-130 NOA1 date.

*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
