Embassy Review : So, husband arrived about 5:30 for a 6:30 interview. No need to explain the security and check in process, it is the same as others. He said after waiting about 30 minutes he was called and greeted by a nice lady. I made sure to tell him to greet her back with good morning and to ask how is she doing to set a good tone for interview. He let me know that no question was asked that he didnt know and we had went over. Who’s inviting you? How did you meet? Ok How did you start talking? When did you get married ? How many times has she visited? What do you guys do when she’s around? Where does she work? What’s her position? Does she have a daughter? How old is she? Do you talk to her daughter? What type of ceremony and do you have pictures?She then told him, ok Approved!!! Explained to him how to pick up visa and pay immigrant fee. So happy he will be home for Christmas.

*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.
