Comments : I am filling this out two years later. I believe we did not encounter any issues at ORD. Husband's mother came with to visit and she was able to go through processing with him. He had to wait around a little bit, and got yelled at for using a cell phone. It took maybe an hour longer than expected. I was waiting in the parking lot a LONG time.

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : June 21, 2010
Embassy Review : Arrived about one hour early. Interview was early morning.
All the people at the embassy were friendly and nice.
Nothing to complain about and everything was fine.
The embassy was not too crowded or busy that day.

The whole thing took about one and a half hours.
The questions asked were not too hard or complex.
The interviewer did not ask for any evidence at all.
Good experience.

*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
