Event Description
Review Date : March 12, 2018
Embassy Review : Things were going smoothly until the interview. Not once in this whole process did we make a mistake or not have everything done correctly. The officer that interviewed my husband clearly didn't go through all of the paperwork. My 2016 W2 was over the minimum requirement by about $3000.00. And they said I would need a co-sponsor because my income was under the required limit. And come to find out that the officer was counting my son as a dependent, He's 20 years old and is going to college in a different state. I provided all of the proof that he was no longer a dependent of mine. But they still said I needed a co-sponsor. Thankfully, my 2017 W2 came and almost doubled my 2016 income. They then said I no longer need a co-sponsor. But they then stuck us in administrative processing. It's been 5 weeks and all they can tell us is that they will contact us once they have completed our case. I am so disappointed with the experience at this Embassy.
Rating : Very Poor

*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
