Comments : This was a very smooth process, I did my home work thoroughly, with the help of my friends from Lifting the conditional residency took 3 1/2 month from the date of filing. From the date of entry in the US I kept a record of all documents that could help prove our relationship, everything was placed in a folder and kept safe. Do the same it will make the process very easy. Thanks again friends. Next step naturalization.

*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
