Local US CIS Office Review: Santa Ana CA
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : November 28, 2005
Embassy Review : Showed up a few minutes early, then we were called after waiting less than 10 minutes. Interview went smooth & easy. Interviewer zipped through the paperwork, checking things off & asking questions. Although the notice said it would be videotaped, our interview wasn't. We even forgot the pink slip to my wife's car (proving she was on title too) but he said don't worry, you already passed.
Harassment Level : 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
