Consulate Review: Warsaw, Poland
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : July 11, 2010
Embassy Review : For some reason, they did not get all the documents from the NVC. My husband sent them tax transcripts for the previous three years for both himself and his father. In addition, he sent W2s and 1040s for the last tax year. The embassy never received the W2s. So I woke my husband up at 2am PST to have him search around the house for these forms and fax them back before the embassy closed.

Other than this frightening moment, everything went well.

The second time I saw the consular she was very apologetic and nice (my husband called her after he faxed the documents).

We could not get though why they would need this information when the NVC already said it was accepted. It was such a scare!

*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
