Comments : We were denied at interview for lack of income. I had more then enough income but because I'm retired on my taxes it doesn't include a retirees Social Security income as gross income. Based on that the Counselor Interviewer said I needed another sponsor. I argued this but did no good and got no response from any counselor representative. There very hard to work with and will not answer questions. Will not reply half the time. But was told at interview that If I got another sponsor that she would sign off on the Visa and we wouldn't need to go to a second interview. This we did and were finely issued the stamp in my wife's passport. I paid for her entry to USCIS an purchased airline tickets to go through Miami. Everything went smooth with immigration there and my wife is now waiting for her green card. She received her Social Security card in the mail in about a week after arriving here in Colorado.

I had expected to have been approved in April of 2020. This did not happen because Covid 19 hit everyone in the world. The Dominican Republic was shut down pretty much right away and still are. I was living in the DR with my wife waiting. But started having bad problems with my knee. The counselor allowed us to get her visa on an emergency basis. But I had to come back home to Colorado to get checked by a Doctor and schedule a surgery. Then send the paperwork to the Counselor in the DR to determine if my wife could come on an emergency basis. They did allow this or we would still have been waiting.

*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
