Local US CIS Office Review: Seattle WA
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : December 15, 2009
Embassy Review : The interview went fine. We sat around for over an hour past our scheduled interview time, with almost nobody else left, starting to wonder if we'd been skipped. It lasted ~15 minutes and would have been faster if the guy wasn't interrupted by phone calls.

Some questions he asked:
How did we meet?
What is "Guild Wars?" (asked many specifics about how the game operates and such)
When was that?
When did we marry?
Do you have photos of the occasion?
Who are these people in the pictures?
Am I working? Is he working? What did he do in Germany?
Were either of you married before?
Any children?
Did you have any more vaccinations since you entered the U.S./ did he still need any?
Where are you living?
Who lives with you?
Where did he learn to speak English?

Approval, green card in 2-4 weeks.
Harassment Level : 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
