Local US CIS Office Review: Portland OR
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : July 11, 2010
Embassy Review : Our interview at at 11:00 in the morning - got there around 10:40 and our lawyer got there about 5-10 minutes later. We waited in the hallway (there are benches to sit on) because the official waiting room seemed stressful with so many anxious people. The immigration officer came out around 10:50 and brought us back - he was very young and polite, but not friendly (very professional). He looked through our application and verified some of the biographical info (name, DOB, SSN). He asked us where/how we met, what our wedding was like, and then moved on to pictures. He looked through our wedding album and seemed to especially focus on the pics of my wife with my family. He also had a collage photo of our honeymoon in Maui and maybe 5 other pics of our life before then (we had probably 1,000 before our lawyer went through and picked out just a few). He really seemed to like the picture of us in front of the Eiffel Tower and said something like "oh, you guys have done a lot of travelling together". That seemed to be the final proof he needed and said he would approve our application. We handed him a stack of other evidence that my lawyer had all organized and hole-punched that he very briefly skimmed and added to our file. That was it. It was a million times easier that I was anticipating and thought the IO was exactly how he should be - very professional without cold.
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
