Consulate Review: Guangzhou, China
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : November 6, 2013
Embassy Review : My wife's appointment was at 9:30 AM, but she her document intake wasn't until 10:30. All original documents specified in the Interview Letter were asked for and given. She was asked if she had any other I-864s from other sponsors (no, she didn't).

Almost immediately after the document intake, she had her interview. The interviewer was extremely pleasant. Four total questions:

1) How did we meet? (Internet)
2) How many times have I visited her? (7 times, going on 8)
3) How did we communicated, considering that her English isn't good. (When we video-chat, we use Google Translate for the rough spots. When we really get stuck, we write more detail in our next daily email; and we use both Google and Bing translators. Although we sometimes get frustrated, our language difficulty hasn't proven to be a problem.
4) Have we had a child together. (No)

She passed.

Note: We heavily front-loaded both the I-130 and DS-230 packages with evidence. And any potential "red flags" were addressed in "Personal Statements" in each of the two packages. So I'm pretty sure my wife was 99% approved before she ever got to the interview window.
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
