Comments : Smooth interview - waiting four hours, and was last one to be interviewed. First interviewed by a Moroccan woman, who asked just a few questions, one being why we postponed interview so many times (we did not - just once), then by American male - the papers already said approved on them. He asked about me, what I do for work, to describe what I like to create (I am an artist), if I have siblings, about my children, what he will do for work when he comes, what we will do for money, why we didn't get married in Morocco when we had 40 days to do it and that's about it. Told him to come back Thursday to pick up his visa and he did :)

Embassy Review : Smooth interview - waited four hours from appointment time, and was last one to be interviewed. First interviewed by a Moroccan woman, who asked just a few questions, one being why we postponed interview so many times (we did not - just once), then by American male - the papers already said approved on them. He asked about me, what I do for work, to describe what I like to create (I am an artist), if I have siblings, about my children, what he will do for work when he comes, what we will do for money, why we didn't get married in Morocco when we had 40 days to do it and that's about it.

Local US CIS Office Review: Detroit MI
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : August 21, 2012
Embassy Review : We arrived a few minutes early. Big burly guy at the scanner asked "I" what he was here for and he responded "to adjust my situation". Many people in room, so thought we'd be waiting a while, but were called within 10 minutes. The interviewer met us at the entrance to the offices, walked us to the very last one. We swore in, then she asked "I" questions about himself, and a series of questions that were listed on the application concerning whether he would commit an act of terrorism or try to overthrow the U.S. Government, ever committed murder, etcetera. Then asked him my name, my birth date, and what I like to do for fun. Then she asked me what he likes to do for fun and whether I met his family. Asked if we had any supporting documents we wanted to submit, for which I submitted a few and she said she believes she has all the documents she needs. Then she said he would get his green card in 7 to 10 days and could apply for citizenship in three years from now. Was surprised to find it very pleasant and brief.
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
