Comments : We had a wonderful lawyer out of New York do our case. never met her, all was done via phone, email,mail and fax. Was pricey but wife and I were busy, so it was 1 less thing to worry about. And we hadn't found VJ yet!! Otherwise we might have saved $2500!! But can't complain, our Journey took about 6 months, no RFE's. All worked out very well.

*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
