Comments : Consular asked my husband 4 questions:
1. How did you meet your wife
2. Have u spoke to your wife’s children
3. How many times has your wife come to Ghana
4. Do you know your wife was divorced before and if so, how many times

My husband said it’s not easy but being confident, direct eye contact
and praying helps a lot.

I wish all that follows for their interviews much success. YOU MUST submit in all of your evidence to NVC and when NVC mails your documents to Ghana then the Consular sees all before your arrival for your interview. Send as much proof as u can to NVC such as pictures of the 2 of you with family, chat records for every year you have known each other, face time, letters from family, friends & coworkers, cards from Bday or anniversary, life insurance policies with spouse named as beneficiary, Your travel proof of going to Ghana, any items you added your spouses name on such as credit cards, utility bills, car insurance, phone acct, etc.
Build your proof of solid marriage and pray.... 🙏
Consular did request a document so after acknowledged then visa issued..

*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
