Interview prep: Work, money, and crimes - AOS from J-1 spouse
1:29 pm today


Read 48 Times

Hi all, a few questions while we prep for the interview.

1) Do interviewers press hard about unauthorized work? (cash / under the table work by the applicant?)

2) We just filed our taxes and I (the petitioner) am just barely over the 125% poverty line, by $200. My work is based on graduate school ('Research Assistant'), not a very long term income. Would this be viewed as temporary work and a problem when it comes to the interview?

2) My spouse (Applicant) has no criminal record.. I (the petitioner) had a DUI about ten years ago, all sorted, no further problems, but it is a crime on my record. A lot of the paperwork addressed to the applicant mentioned that it needs their criminal history documents. Does any of that apply to the petitioner?

DS 260 police checks

Hi there

Im Australian and married to an American moving to Oakland. I lived in the US for more than 12 months since the age of 16. I recieved my Australian Federal Police report but have read around that applicants are not required to get the FBI check from the US if that is the place they lived outside their country of residence.

I know if i lived in India for example, i would need a police check from that country and all other countries other than australia i have lived in.

Is this the case and will not need to get a FBI check?
