Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : May 14, 2019
Embassy Review : We arrived at 1:05 Pm for our 1:30 Pm apt. When we got there they checked us off on their list and we went into security. There was no line or anything. We had folders of papers and a bag of albums, but they made us throw out a small wooden picture frame. After that we got a number and we sat and waiting to be called for document collection.

15 minutes or so passed and we got called to a window (you stand there and their microphones are very loud so everyone can hear your interview haha). The woman was very polite and took our documents one by one, including translations. She asked us:
-When we got married.
-If either of us have been divorced.
-If he had been to the USA before.
After that she took the docs and cut me off after a few pieces of evidence for the relationship and said that would be plenty.

30 minutes later or so, we got called again for our interview. They made us swear under oath and then she began. The woman was extremely friendly and offered to speak whicever language we wanted (English or Spanish) and we chose Spanish. She asked us:
-Do you have a police record?
-Have you been to the USA or any other country?
-How did you meet?
-How many times I visited.
-When we decided to get engaged.
-How was our wedding or ceremony.
-How do each of us get along with the other’s family.
-If we wanted kids.
-What we like about each other.

After that she said sorry bear with me the computer is freezing up, but just to let you know you are approved and go drink some champagne!


Rating : Very Good

*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
