Green Card interview was today... We had alllll the documentation they had asked for and a ton of photos from throughout the year. We had also spent a little time making sure our memories and dates etc. were well matched and that we had the names of our families clear in our heads etc etc. A few days of work to get all that sorted. And as it turned out it wasn't needed in our case...



Green Card interview took about 10 minutes. Lovely guy. Just swore us in. Checked our details. Asked if we had jobs and what they were. Took a quick look at three statements (water, gas, bank) and handed them straight back. Asked the usual stuff about being arrested, smuggling etc. Told us the K1 was the real hurdle and that he was just here to spot anything weird and we were quite obviously genuine and not terrorists. Signed the form. Green Card done.



Much grinning followed. And a fabulous Facebook selfie and check-in. Then all you can eat sushi. Job done.



21 months until we do the 2 year removal of conditions. And then I think another 9 months later to start citizenship.



Best of luck and love to you all.

Dumb question, but is your water + gas statements in both of your names?

Dumb question, but is your water + gas statements in both of your names?

Yes - water, gas, electricity, bank, insurance... as many things as possible we got both names on. Makes for really strong evidence of the fact we are not just married, but also living together, hence completely genuine.

The interviewer was keen to see that kind of evidence - more so than photos.

For the removal of conditions in 2 years time he said to bring more of the same... plus if we buy a house.. a car... etc. to show evidence of joint ownership. Also a joint tax return. Plus some holiday photos.
