Comments : Initially our interview was scheduled for Sept 2 but we had to postpone it due to insufficient time to get medical. Also the intial interview was declined due to lack of documentation because I, the sponser, had just changed jobs and they didn't have record of my income. We submitted documentation and got the approval 10 days later.

Consulate Review: Chennai, India
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : October 21, 2010
Embassy Review : My husband was asked when he proposed..which he couldn't remember..and neither could I honestly..The interviewer was very rude concerning my prior marriage and the fact that I have a daughter from that marriage. Implying there was no way a legitimate relationship could be in place because of my past. Still..the remaining questions he answered properly and in the end was denied due to my job change from 2 weeks prior. They gave him the blue sheet and I had to get a letter from my employer stating my income and position and start date to verify I still fit the AOS criteria. Overall, my husband said he felt humiliated because of the way the consular spoke to him. But at least we are approved
Rating : Very Poor

*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
