Got interview letter!

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, I got my interview scheduled April 21th, I wanted to ask your thoughts about our situation. My wife is 7 years older than me and has 2 kids from previous relationship (not marriage) do you think we will be grilled because of that? We really love each other and had no choice about age difference and kids. Your thoughts will be appreciated. Thanks

Don't worry overmuch; it's not a problem that she's older, or has 2 kids. They would be concerned if you don't meet the Affidavit of Support requirements, but if you're at the interview stage without an RFE, you're probably good to go!

If you are legit, you don't have to worry about. Real couple will survive even Stokes interview. Good luck.

Tips: Learn facts about her kids together with your spouse, they will dig into that matter like when you met them, how relationship is, memoirs...

Thanks for the response Ortolan, we got an RFE for Affidavit of Support but it was because we forgot to send W2s of the joint sponsor, after we responded they quickly sent my EAD and scheduled the interview (in total it took 3 months to get the interview letter including RFE response time). We lived together in 3 different cities, 2 different states together since we met 1.5 years ago, and have a lot of proof such as interview confirmations with my home country, letters sent to addresses/rental agreement, affidavits from friends, even town library :), joint tax return/ bank accounts, healthcare power of attorney, valentines day letter and baby chicks I bought for her, text/facebook messages, pictures etc. Hopefully everything works smoothly, and please let me know if any other evidence that I can include pops in your mind. Thank you very much again!

Hey Nancy, actually that's another thing, the kids are living with my mother-in-law right now since we weren't financially stable for a while and we are waiting for them to finish the school year. I met and hung out with them 5-6 times though. My wife is from a small town and there was literally no jobs around there so we had to move to get good jobs and bring the kids. Thanks for helping me out every time :) Hope you are having a wonderful day!
