I know! It was just over four months. We feel lucky about that. We know we are in for quite the wait for the GC though, as the Seattle FO wait time is one of the longest in the country just now.

Your timeline is very neat and hopeful for others navigating the process! We just got a fiancé approved not too long ago , and will definitely be jumping on the AOS boat soon!

*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
