Local US CIS Office Review: Sacramento CA
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : August 27, 2007
Embassy Review : We came prepared for everything and anything. We had duplicates of every document we submitted and thought we were prepared for the worse. We could not have been more surprised by the process. It took very little time, maybe 20 minutes. We were both sworn in, the officer asked for evidence of joint accounts, tax returns or anything that could prove we were a true married couple. I explained our problems getting my wife a social security card and therefore we did not have any joint accounts. Our marriage was in January, so not joint tax returns. Finally we showed recent photos of our trip across America to meet my daughter, son-in-law and new granddaughter. That did the trick. It was so easy that I was sure something was wrong. We were completely surprised and amazed at how easy and quick it was. A definite improvement over the application process.
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
