Got EAD Stamp : Yes,Passport Stamp
Biometrics Taken : Yes
Harassment Level : 0
Comments : Couldn't go to a citizens' line, because some retard decided we couldn't. (When we go to the Immigration Officer through the visitor's line, I asked him, if it would've been fine to go to US Citizens line and he said - OF COURSE).
So, in any case, IO opened up the envelope and processed Daria and escorted us to another immigration station. That wait was a bit frustrating, because there was no one else but us waiting and the young girl (IO) at the counter was a bit too preoccupied flirting with a guy. That went on for a good 30 minutes, until a second IO came around and grabbed our documents from that girl's desk. We were processed in the matter of minutes and were sent on our way.

Consulate Review: Ukraine
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : April 20, 2010
Embassy Review : Our scheduled appointment was for 9 A.M. We arrived around 8:15.
I (I am a USC) went up to a guard and asked what the SOP for getting in there on time is. He told me to go fetch my fiancťe, go check in our bags at the place 2 doors down from the consulate entrance, and then he told me to just come by and stand right by the entrance and at 8:55 we will be able to go in.
That is exactly what happened. At 8:55 both of us were escorted to the security check bypassing the line in front of us.
After the security check we navigated to the immigrant visa section of the consulate. There were some people there who've been there since 8 A.M., apparently. We gave our documents to the guy in the window (he spoke Ukrainian to us). He took all of our documents and told us to sit down.

- Side note here, he only took my 2009 W-2, didn't want any other years, didn't want any paystubs or anything else.

In about half an hour Daria was called up for fingerprints.
After waiting for about another hour her name was called for an interview. I went up with her. The consul (woman) was very nice from the start, but very thorough. She asked for my passport and then jokingly mentioned that it's only to make sure I'm the same guy that is in the pictures that we submitted :P

After that she spoke to me directly. She asked me how did I like Nijmegen (that's one of the places in The Netherlands that Daria and I visited) and if I knew about the history of that place (I did know some: D). Then she asked me how the hell I ended up becoming a biochemist and what is it that I do at work on a daily basis. I answered. Then she told me that she doesn't have any more questions for me. She said that she is amazed with the level of detail that our paperwork had. And she said that everything she wanted to see was there and that it was a great package that we put together for the interview.
Then, she told me she was going to ask Daria some questions and that I may leave. She gave me back all the documents (I-134, proof of relationship, birth certificate) and kindly asked me to go into the waiting room.

Daria was asked couple of questions:
- How exactly did you reconnect after so many years being out of touch (we wrote all that in the "how did you meet" section of I-129F)
- Where does he work?
- Where does he live?
- Where do his parents live?
- Was he ever married?
- Does he have kids?

And that was it. The consul told Daria - Welcome to America. Gave her a pink slip and told her to go pay for the visa delivery.
We paid 60 Hryvnas (about $8) and that was it.
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.
