Greencard Received: 2009-01-22
Comments : No interview. We had one AOS from K-1 and four AOS from K-2. The K-1 was orignally approved on Sep. 22, 2008. No green card was sent until all the K-2 were sent. The K-2 were approved on 1/14/2009. All had a date of 1/14/2009. We suspect the K-2 applications were mistakenly separated from from the K-1 because of the laps between approval dates and an RFE on 1/13/2009 for infomation that was submitted with the K-1.

*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
