Local US CIS Office Review: Saint Paul MN
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : February 26, 2007
Embassy Review : So, here's what happened at my interview. My husband and I got there about 12:30. We were sent up to the third floor, placed the interview notice in a bin, and went into a waiting area. There were people waiting there, and we just sat down and watched some CNN. Then a blonde lady came out at 1:10 and called me. She took me to her office, and then asked me to swear the oath. She asked the usual questions, what's your name, date of birth, husband's name, address, parents' names, and so on. She then asked the other questions, if you've been a prostitute, terrorist, deported, etc. Then she asked how we met, when we got married, where the ceremony was held, who attended. I gave her our photo album with all our pictures from when we dated, family reunions, vacation, and wedding pictures. She also collected copies of our utility bills, cellphone bills, health, life, and renter's insurance, and joint bank statement. She then called my husband in, made him take the oath, and asked him basically the same questions. She was so formal, and didn't even smile or make us comfortable. My husband got really nervous and forgot the exact date we met. He tried to laugh about it, and made a joke, but she just cut him off and didn't even let him finish talking. After the interview, she said, oh I can't approve you today because the name check isn't done yet. She then went and made copies of some of our pictures, and that was it. It was the worst interview I've ever had.
Harassment Level : 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
