Event Description
Review Date : May 7, 2010
Embassy Review : Yay.
Not much trouble at all. I was a little worried because we don't have any joint assets, and the only thing I had to show for that was putting the family on my employers health insurance. So we showed the insurance cards and a bill from the clinic for my wife's checkup.

I also forgot to bring pictures of the wedding. DOH

Anyway, it was pretty much a breeze. We had to help the lady put all the name changes in order (2 for my wife, 3 for her son). She was a little confused about that, and On had to explain that changing your name is no big deal in Thailand and everybody does it.
I think she knew we were legit and was just trying to satisfy her checklist.

Questions asked:
Who proposed to whom and when?
Age difference?
How did you meet?

The rest was formality, she made On and son answer all the formal questions again that are on the AOS checklist. Then she said she'd approve it, took our employment authorization cards, the entry visa from the passports, and said we'd get the green cards in about 2 weeks.
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
