Event Description
Review Date : January 1, 2014
Embassy Review : The experience was great, not just because she was approved. Her overall experience with the interview was very good. The visa officer was very nice and was very impressed with her very good english. Asked how she learned to speak english so well. All that was needed was the 134f with the supporting documents and current W2 , Tax Transcript,1040 and intent to marry letter. We also brought all our original 129f supporting documents and current proof of on going relationship. But nothing else was asked to be seen. Some may say thats too much and dont need to bring all that stuff. But i rather have too much than not enough. The U.S. government is not my friend, so sorry i will not leave any room for excuses on their end. We obviously did our homework the first time when preparing our 129 petition. VJ is a good guide to get started, but overall our best guide and experience throughout this process was from the group on QQ. That isn't to say there are not helpful people on VJ, we just had better experience with the people going through the same process ,or have been, from the same country.
But we first give all the glory to God!! Happy New Year and Best wishes on your process!
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
