During my application for green card, this site was immensely helpful for me. As I was going through separate websites on internet on the topic of how long does the entire process take, I realized that most of the experiences posted were not very good, and can cause a lot of anxiety. I am writing to contribute my positive experience with USCIS in our application. Hopefully new applicants will find some peace by reading about a positive experience.
