How to be Successful in a Marriage Interview for Green Card
Yes, since you have already filed for immigration, you would know by now that there will be an interview session that the married couple has to take if they want to lay hands on a green card. Keep in mind, this interview is not easy and the interviewer does absolutely nothing to help make things any more convenient for you. This is the reason that you need to prepare long and hard to make sure that you do pass the interview and are able to satisfy the officer that the marriage is for real and not just to get a green card.
Here is how to pass marriage interview successfully.
Know What is Required of You
This is important if you hope to succeed. The basic idea is to discover that the marriage is authentic and wasn’t held simply so that immigration could be achieved and this is exactly what the immigration interviewer is going to focus on. This is the reason that you need to know the little things that took place in your marriage, like the dates that you got married on, the place, what both you and your spouse wore and such. You would also need to know the names of your family members, pets owned or even some close friends. So long as it seems that both of you are equally involved in each other’s lives, the officer will be ok with things.
There are No Specific Questions
There aren’t really. Questions vary from interviewer to interviewer, which is why there is nothing that you need to memorize. What’s more, if there is something specific that the interviewer asks, like the date when you got to US, you have the option of looking at the papers you provide. The officer will not judge you on that because they understand that it is not possible to remember each and everything that you did.
Guessing will be Your Downfall
Never ever make the mistake of guessing something or inventing something that you don’t remember. This is the worst thing that you can do for your green card process. If the interviewer asks you the place you and your spouse first went on a date and you do not remember, say it outright that you don’t remember or are not sure. If you and your spouse give different answers, it will get you in trouble because it will raise suspicions.
Be Prepared for Separate Interviews
There are times when the interviews are conducted separately, just to make sure that majority of the answers match. So get a few things straight between you and your spouse so that you both know what you will say.
