2.where does he live??
3.what is his old address?
4.what is his new address?
5.when did the last you see each other?

the pre-screener asked about the address because the papers that we tp theUSCIS didn't updated for the new address.he said that there is a possible that my husband and his ex wife is still together so i said no Sir then he said ARE YOU SURE? so i said YES SIR.He let me sign the DS-230,then he check the papers that we sent from USCIS and NVC. can you see that your papers are thick so isaid yes Sir then he smile @ me.he ask me the wedding pictures and money receipt.then he said ok wait for your name to be call :)

*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
