Event Description
Review Date : June 1, 2010
Embassy Review : Finally I get to post one of these and share my happy story!

My appointment was scheduled for 8:30am and we arrived about 15 minutes early. It was a bit of a wait. It is the Tuesday following the Memorial Day weekend and apparently they had some people off on vacation and some that had called out. We waited until about 10am before getting in. My Dad, who petitioned for me, came with me to the appointment. The lady was very nice and friendly. We were sizing up the officers as they came out and she seemed to be the friendliest. I was happy to get her. The forms looked like they had spills on them and she asked if I had submitted them like that, to which I answered no. She congratulated my Dad on his recent citizenship, mentioned the date he had filed the petition when he was a permanent resident and that his becoming a citizen had moved me along substantially.

The issue I was sweating the most turned out to not be a hinderence. I had a DUI in 2008 that I was really stressing. She brought up that I had a DUI and I said yes and that it was an unfortunate incident. I had also been charged for DUI in 1997 but acquitted, and it was having the 2 arrests that stressed me out. She really didn't focus on that too much. She thanked me for submitting all the certified court documents regarding the arrests in advance and said that having everything together made things easier. I also had a careless and reckless and driving after consuming while under 21 (these were from the 1997 incident) and submitted certified copies from all cases. She commented that I was very thourough with my submission. Then she asked for mine and my Dad's ID and took copies, and also reviewed the original of my birth certificate and my Dad's citizenship certificate. She then said that before she stamped it for approval she had to get her supervisors signature because of the arrest and also because of the water damage (which must have happened in the mail). We went back to the waiting room and waited for about 10 minutes, and then she came out, called my name, and gave us back our ID's and gave me a letter saying CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

I've been waiting years for this and it is such a happy day!!!!

Good luck to all that are waiting their interviews! Hopefully your experience is happy too!
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
