Event Description
Review Date : February 9, 2013
Embassy Review : The process seemed to be a bit overwhelming when we first started doing research. It actually ended up being fast and fairly easy once we got started. We did have one hiccup and had the I-130 returned because I missed a couple "N/A" or "none" entries on the form. Even with this minor setback, the whole DCF process only took 3 months.

My suggestion for anyone planning to DCF is to be prepared. Have all of your documents ready and in an easy to find order. I saw one I-130 application ahead of me turned away (and he had traveled pretty far) simply because he didn't have passport PICTURES needed for the forms.
Rating : 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
