Embassy Review : Geir said that the wait was only 30 mins, then he said that the interviewer asked him questions in Norewegian but he answered in English, and the interview was conducted like that. Some of the questions were have we met, what did I do, have I met his kids?..he said she even smiled as she read my essay on how we met...she also asked him did he know why I got divorced, he gave the best answers he could..she also asked if we were staying in philadelphia...thats about it, she gave him a hearty congrats and said he was approved!

*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
