Local US CIS Office Review: Denver CO
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : November 1, 2010
Embassy Review : Got to the CIS Office about 30 minutes early. Had about an hour long wait in a big lobby with lots of other immigration applicants. Everyone just sat and stared at everyone else while we waited. Eventually called back to the interviewers office and had a VERY short interview process. We presented lots of pictures, they only took one wedding photo and asked a few questions about where we were living, if we had any children and then the interviewer (a very abrupt man) told us everything looked good and that we would probably have a small wait because of administrative processing (husband is from Afghanistan).

We received Omar's 2-year Green Card in the mail less than 2 months later! javascript:emoticon('')
Harassment Level : Very 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
