Dear CFL,

We've noticed that a lot of petitioners have recently been coming in to Petitioner Hour at the Consulate mostly so that officers will make a note in their case that they appeared.

In the event that people are doing this in the hope that it will increase the chances that their case will be approved--let's be clear that it really makes no difference at all if petitioners come to Petitioner Hour.

If you want to prove that you returned to China for your fiance(e)/spouse's interview, just ask them to take your passport or a notarized photocopy of the entire passport to the interview with them.

Furthermore, it might be worth keeping in mind that the time consular officers spend at Petitioner Hour is time that is not spent processing cases. The intention of Petitioner Hour is to provide a forum where petitioners can make inquiries about the status of their cases or clear up confusion about the visa process.

So, if you go to Petitioner Hour without a real question, you are really just slowing the process down for everyone else. Please keep this in mind when you decide whether to attend.
