Event Description
Review Date : October 4, 2007
Embassy Review : American side was something out of a horror movie. Didn't realize anyone could scream at a person that loud thru the glass without passing out. Personally I don't like to be yelled at BY ANYONE, let alone by my consulate in MY AMERICAN EMBASSY. I think she was having the worst bad hair day!! But she did give me my notarization for marriage. Petition interview was so nice and calm. CO was very professional, nice, asked important questions of myself and my husband. This experience re-newed my faith in the embassy until my husband had his visa interview. Well, the rest of the story is an adventure that we certainly don't want to experience again. We still have faith in our embassy and know we will be granted a visa soon. The process has been a learning experience and opened our eyes to how immigration procedures are. Until now it hasn't been the best experience but we are hoping it will be soon.

*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
