Greencard Received:
Comments : Our interview was cancelled and now we are in limbo. The USCIS Charlotte office says they have our kit and are going to reschedule our appointment, and that it could take 120 days. We have waited 30 days so far. My wife is having trouble finding a job that takes doesn't require her to be a green card holder or a citizen. Also without a valid EAD she can't renew her drivers license. People who applied during Covid 19 have already gotten their green card while we still wait. Any advice would be appreciated.

Consulate Review: Ukraine
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : July 16, 2019
Embassy Review : First they sorted out our paperwork. If you have originals and copies, leave the copies out. (We had an extra folder where we had documents we might need. I would recommend putting any copies there.) The Ukrainian lady at the window was very kind, and helped my fiancee, this took about 10 minutes. We then waited about 15 minutes. Our consular officer was very nice and started with a few questions to me. What part of my state was I from, how was it there? Then he asked my fiancee how we met, if she had relatives in USA, he also asked about her previous attempt to get a business Visa and how many times I visited. Then they chatted a while, then he asked her daughter about her school and if she spoke English. Listen to the questions as they were worded in a manner to test what you have said in your documents. Then after a pleasant chat we were approved. It took a few minutes for us to really understand, but then happiness set in. If you travel with children from previous marriages, bring copies, don't bring originals. You will need the originals at the border.
Rating : Very Good

We have worked on Iryna's DS-160 form and we are having such trouble with it(The site). If anyone knows why please let us know.

We found that if you save the document after almost every change/update it works much better.

I see you got the visa in record time. And that your address is near Myrtle Beach. Are you AD military?

*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
