Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : March 15, 2010
Embassy Review : The interview was successful, we are very greatful to God almighty. Here are the questions asked:

How did you meet your wife?
What does your wife do?
What is your wife's area of specialty (relative to job)?
Has your wife ever been married?
Have you ever been married?
What is the reason for her divorce?
Why didn't you marry your wife before she left Nigeria?
Why did your wife cancel your first I130? (I had canceled because my divorce wasn't final before we got married and I did not realized that until we were approved?
Did your wife cancel the application or did the NVC cancel the apllication (2X)
Who is the co-sponsor?
What does the co-sponsor do?
How is the co-sponsor related to your wife?

After all the questions they were only interested in looking at our webcam pixs, no any other documents was checked. I had frontloaded all documents from USCIS stage including all wedding pixs, e-mails and phone records for 4 years of relationship.

To my surprise, my hubby felt theat they were pleasant and respectful throughout the entire interview and that they took their time to explain what need to be done to those who were denied. I hope you find this review helpful. I wish you all the best.
Rating : 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
