Local US CIS Office Review: Portland OR
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : January 20, 2012
Embassy Review : The CIS office in Portland is in the fashionable 'Pearl District' and looks brand new. The security guards in the entrance were reasonably friendly, and the receptionist had an Indian/Pakistani accent and was very nice as well. The waiting room is upstairs on the second floor, and the chairs were comfortable. Our appointment was for 1:00 pm, and at about 1:15 or so our 'officer' came out and called our names. He was very informal and friendly, and escorted us through the maze of hallways to his little office. He had what appeared to be our entire file on his desk. After brief 'ice-breaker' chatter, he proceeded to ask the standard questions, some of which were mandatory and some which were his choice. The mandatory questions were: are you a communist, or are you a terrorist? I found it ridiculous that they still have to ask if you're a communist! Then he asked one of us to tell our story from first meeting up to today. It didn't matter which one of us spoke, so I did. I was very real and honest with everything, including the difficult transition we had just been through from two years of long-distance romance to living together day in and day out. Then he asked us to present the documentation we had brought along to prove our living together. I gave him the rental lease agreement with Fatima's name on it, a card showing Fatima on my medical insurance, a bill with Fatima's name on it, and that was about it really.

It seemed like all he was really looking for was consistency between the file in front of him and what we were saying to him now. It seemed like an easy choice for him to approve us -- he had no reason not to. The whole interview seemed like a formality -- after all we had done since April, 2010 here we were, and that in itself was probably enough! So he told us that Fatime was approved for her Green Card, and it should come in the mail within the next week or so. We were surprised that he took and kept her EAD/AP card that she had just received last month. He said the Green Card would be all she would need now. And that was it!!
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
