Event Description

Embassy Review : From what my husband told me of the interview....

He got there plenty early and was standing in queue....
everyone was starting to enter the building...
he went in and hadnt opened his medicals....
they did a security check and told him to go back outside to open his medicals and get in line again so he went outside and tried to confirm with another security guard that he was suppose to open the medicals....
he stated he wasnt allowed to a couple years ago when he went for K-1 visa interview...
the security guard told him no need to ask him to do what he was told and get back in line.....
and pointed to the longest queue which was the non immigrant line....
they then were allowed to enter and rechecked him and gave them each a number...
they finally got a form to fill out while they were waiting...
finally they were told to go to the main building remove there belts and belongings and went thru the xray machine again they sat waiting....
his number was finally called they asked for his police clearances...
they collected his passport and passport pict...
he was told to return to his seat and wait to be called...
finally his number was called and the true interview began

the interviewer was a woman
questions were as follows:::

Who petitioned for you ???
How did you meet???
Asked about our facebook accounts???
then the interviewer for the second time commented on the fact that we have too much evidence....
What do you and your wife have in common???
Asked about who a few people were in pictures???
then she commented again about our too much husband laughed and told her well we were denied for a fiance visa due to the fact we were told we couldnt prove we had a bonafide relationship, and we didnt want to have that issue this time...and the interviewer smiled and started taking all our chats and pictures out of our file and handed them all back to my husband lol
Then she asked what my husband did while living in the UK for 2 years???
Asked about what I did for a living???
Asked for the tax papers she accidentally gave him when handing all the evidence we submitted.
Then she handed my husband 2 pieces of paper and said to make sure he reads them well and to pick up his visa in two weeks and to enjoy his life in the US with his wife...

Confidence and knowing your partner better than yourself is half the battle....This is not an easy battle ... NEVER EVER take anything in this process for granted...Your life needs to be documented all the time when you dont think you need something they will ask for it...Each interviewer is different they ask for different things that they each think is of importance...Finally our lives are ours no more living under a camera and skype,whatsapp and all the other mean of communication...Thank you God

*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
