Embassy Review : Failed 1st and 2nd interview had to wait 3 years, Xmas without her, family and friends pass away... some drunk nights on my part... however she was finally approved by USCIS interviewer had to go to the top at Embassy... June 7th she arrived at SeaTac and we went home in Limo. Been happily married since then proving consulate officer wrong.

*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
