Consulate Review: Frankfurt, Germany
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : July 3, 2007
Embassy Review : My interview for the K1-Visa was on Feb. 8th. in Frankfurt. I used to live and work there, so fortunately I did not have to worry about finding the way or a hotel.
You cannot miss the embassy - it is a huge area and you just stop where all the people are waiting outside (there are parking spots all along the street).
The longest part of the interview was getting through security, if you aplied for a K1-Visa: get in the right line!
Once you are in you simply wait for your number to be called. I had to go to a total of three counters: first hand my passport and pics in, then my documents (birth certificate, I-134 and so on) and on the third counter the consul asked me a couple of easy questions and that was it.
Everybody was really friendly and the consul was the only one who asked his questions in English, everybody else spoke German.
Rating : Very Good

Local US CIS Office Review: Denver CO
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : August 30, 2007
Embassy Review : I had my interview for Adjustment of Status on August 17th. in Denver. We got there pretty early to avoid any traffic jams and after a waiting time of about 45 minutes we were called in for the interview. The immigration officer was really friendly and only asked a couple of easy questions, each others birthdates, the first names of our parents and so on. He also wanted to see some evidence of us really living together and when I handed over my Military Spouse ID and the Health Insurance Enrollment it was just fine. He kept on going through all the paper we ever send, maybe to make sure he had all the documents he needed and was totally surprised because I provided him with copies of all originals we brought with us. After 15 minutes we were approved, done and out!

*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
