Local US CIS Office Review: Saint Paul MN
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : February 12, 2013
Embassy Review : Arrived on time but the waiting room was very busy. We were called about 25 mins after our appointment time. Our interviewer was an amiable young man. We made an effort to dress nicely.

He tok us into his office, swore us in and we had a quick chat before going through the forms. We went through every field on every form, and it turns out that we both got our SSNs wrong on one form but correct on the other. He wasn't too worried. He made a lot of notes on the form (such as people I was sharing a house with before I bought my current house - and before I got together with my husband). He also asked for more information about the clubs I belong to.

He also asked us about how we met, where we were living at the time, and our first date. He asked about our ceremony and reception, as well as information about when and how I last entered the country. I got a bit confused because I travel internationally several times a year, and some of the questions made it sound like they referred to the time I first entered the country to live here (back in 2006).

He didn't ask about my ex-husband, except to confirm that we were divorced.

He wasn't interested in any of the paperwork except for our passports and my birth certificate, even though I took a bunch extra in. I will say that we wer every thorough with the paperwork that we submitted with the application originally. We included a ton of photos, bank account statements, insurance benficiary forms and other evidence of financial co-mingling. This could be why he didn't need any more.

He told us he was approving all our petitions and I'd be issued with a 2 year conditional greencard. He didn't take my I-94.

I burst into tears and the DH teared up as well.

He was very methodical, but also very polite and very personable.

The process was detailed but fair.
Harassment Level : 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
