Event Description
Review Date : September 16, 2013
Embassy Review : Very short interview actually.......
So surprising, only 3 questions...here are the questions to my wife.

1. What is your husband's occupation?
2. Where does he live?
3. How long you been married?

Actually during the course when my wife was answering the questions, she also was showing our family photos, including my son's passport and birth abroad certificate.

Basically that was it.....approved!!! We bought tons of evidence and nothing was asked. But I think I am good with I am really thrill now and damn....wow. 3 fking years (sorry my language) but F King years, I've been waiting....finally. we are going to have some really nice dinner.....now in GUZ
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
