Consulate Review: Warsaw, Poland
Review Topic: Direct Consular Filing
Event Description
Review Date : November 16, 2007
Embassy Review : My husband had his interveiw on Thurs. November 15. I went with my husband of course and they asked me the majority of the questions. The questions I can remember are:
1. Have you been married before?
2. Do you have any kids?
3. Where do you consider domicile?
4. Where do you plan to live in the States?
5. Do you have any documents that show domicile in the US?, Did you vote in the last elections? Do you have a car in the US?
Unfortunately we had to have two documents (police certificates) translated into English instead of Polish, so we had to return the next day. Although nerve racking waiting so long, everything was fine and we were approved.
Thurs. November 15-We arrived at approximately 7:45 for our interview at 8:45. We left around 10:30.
Fri. November 16- We arrived around 7:30 and left around 9:45.
I found it quite strange that they didn't ask anything about how we met, personal questions, or about our joint sponsor.
Rating : 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
