Comments : The interview was pleasant and simple. The interviewer went through our AoS packet and confirmed names, addresses, and yes/no questions to make sure they were all correct. Afterward we were asked how married life was going and if we had anything to show that our marriage is real. The documents we gave her were letters from my employer about her on my insurance, 401k, and life insurance. Along with that we submitted our family photo christmas card, joint bank statement, and bills in both our names.

Consulate Review: Moscow, Russia
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : September 7, 2013
Embassy Review : She arrived at the Embassy at 8am and was out by 10am. She told me the interview takes place in a hall where everyone can hear everyone. The Officer was polite and joked with her a few times which made her feel a lot better. Though we collected a lot of additional relationship evidence none of it was asked for expect for a few pictures. Questions asked were, When did you first meet, what do you like about him, have your parents met him, and what do they think about him. The interview was done in English, her choice, and there were no problems.
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
