Event Description
Review Date : October 10, 2015
Embassy Review : Everything went well. I went to India to be with her. The interview was @ 9 AM. We were allowed to get in @8AM. Waited until 10 AM and then got into the interview area. We got a token number. Went to a counter and they checked all the documents and collected. For 1-130, they took only 2014 tax return, no W2 form, pay slips or employment letter (but good idea to take those). Then waited and called for interview @ 12 noon. All the regular questions, but it seems that the CO did not go through our file (has everything), she asked for the photo album and plan for marriage proof. The Interview was for 15 minutes. I was with her except the interview time. But I said hallo to the CO. The main theme is to take all the paper you submitted and also the originals. They did not ask for Skype or other proof of relationship from us. I have seen quite a few immigrant visa rejected (mainly marriage based) due to not having proper paper work or not having sufficient or satisfactory proof of relationship. While we were waiting, we noticed two CO s were rejecting more than one ( she approved 10 and 1 rejected).

*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
