Local US CIS Office Review: Jacksonville FL
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : February 17, 2007
Embassy Review : My interview went very smoothly. We didi have to wait a bit longer but once we got in it was easy and very relaxed. The interviewer was a guy, he asked us both when is our anniversary and David couldn't remember. Then he asked him when is my birthday and he knew that, and the interviewer commented that guys usually don't know one of those two dates. He asked us how we met and that was nore or less it, we were out in 10 - 15 minutes or so.

I had letters from the place I volunteered at, and my mother in law, and David's grandpa but he didn't even looke at those. He looked at the joint docs that we brought, which was the account and the medical insurance and that was it. And we brought a few photos, starting with David's visit to photos from trips we took once I got here and my birthday.
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
