Consulate Review: Amman, Jordan
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 24, 2018
Embassy Review : Consular officer was very nice. She didn't ask for any documentation for proof of our relationship. She asked my husband a few questions such as my name, how we met, how long we have known each other and when we got married. Her main topic of questioning was the legitimacy of our relationship. He entered the US in 2014 on a K1 visa and his fiance backed out of the intent to marry shortly after he arrived in the US, he then applied for asylum and lived in the US until April of 2017. She made him step away and questioned me if he loved me, if our marriage was a fraud and expressed concern about MENA country men preying on divorced, 40 something women such as myself. I pleaded our relationship,gave her the exact dates and length of my trips to Jordan and told her our relationship was real. In a nutshell she said her approving his visa was up to me and asked if I wanted him to have a visa. I of course said yes. She called him back to the window and told him she had made her decision and asked us to take a seat. We sat down for approximately 20 seconds and was called back to the window and was given a white piece of paper with instructions about the next steps. Happiest moment of our lives the past nine months. As I write this review we are packing up our things and flying home in 36 hours

*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
