Comments : We had prior approvals through USCIS, NVC and interview at embassy within last 12mths on K1 before getting "stuck" in administrative processing for 8mths that never resolved; therefore, switching to marriage abroad and reset to CR1 spouse visa. The actual CR1 interview was difficult and tested knowledge of our blended family, children's names, favorite subjects, sports, etc.
Estimates/Stats :
Your I-130 was approved in 123 days from your NOA1 date.

Your interview took 329 days from your I-130 NOA1 date.

Congrats. When did mail arrived??
blank avatar IndiaAnnie on 2019-07-12 said:
Email at 12pm PST notifying that all documents and fees were accepted and case was being scheduled for interview with Mumbai/Bombay. The next hurdle is that there seems to be a 2-3mth backlog for interviews at the embassy based on others waiting.

all documents accepted at first attempt?
blank avatar Dmoney1 on 2019-07-12 said:
Between congrats and hope out wait wont be longer like others
blank avatar IndiaAnnie on 2019-07-13 said:
@Dmoney1 Yes, first attempt all accepted but I did add extra files, title everything and include notes (for example that Mumbai embassy accepts Andhaar card in place of birth certificate when none exists BUT we have filed for official certificate through courts and would produce original at interview). I suspected as a possible concern so i attached separate individual files in the extra section. They rejected my husband's divorce decree from first marriage due to poor quality but I had attached it below in four independent files of higher quality just in case and that passed us through first round.

Congratulations. Can you tell me in what language you guys conducted the interview and more about the interview?
blank avatar IndiaAnnie on 2019-11-23 said:
Thank you. He took the interview in English. Note: He took our K1 interview in Kannada and the officer at the time seemed "annoyed" with him and the interpreter...and he speaks good English so we opted differently this time. Question asked in interview (keep in mind we are both divorced, blended family/children in both countries and had a failed K1 in 2017): 1.who is calling you? 2.when I met you? How many times she visits India? 3. Why your K1 visa went to AP? 4. Current address of your wife? 5. How many people attended your marriage? 6. Why less people attended your marriage? 7. What your wife do for living? 8. Did you meet her daughter? Where and when? What is her name and what she do? 9. What did your father do? And what he think about our marriage? 10. Did her daughter go to school? Which subject she likes? Where she go to school? 11. Why she didn't attend your marriage? 12. How do you communicate with your wife? What you talk on calls? 13. Why was your US visitor visa rejected? 14. Tell me about her first visit to India? 15. How many kids do you have? 16. When did you get divorced? 17. How many times has your wife been divorced? 18. Show me your tattoo. What does it mean?

*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.
