Comments : Fairly straight forward interview, considering our rather complex circumstances. Went long as I had my K2 son with me. Should have brought MORE documents to prove co-mingling / co-habitation, - was a little short. Interviewer was friendly enough. I was a little worried as she told us at the end of interview that she would have to review further, and we would hear in 30 days. 15 minutes after we left the USCIS building, we had a text message saying our case was updated - into card production, and then soon after - that our new permanent residency had been registered. Such a relief! :-)

*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
