Any advice would be welcome on whether I should stick strictly to the list or if there is any advantage in taking anything not requested for the N-659 interview.

You can carry additional documents but make sure you have whatever is listed!

I was asked for some bona fide documents for 2006, I guess that falls under the "proof of marital union point on the checklist

but I was't much prepared for that much detail

What sort of things did they ask for? That's the only thing on the list I'm not too sure about.

Hi Paul,

Personally, I would play the "better safe than sorry" approach for the interview.

-Bring all the documents that they recommend, as listed on the interview letter

-Bring any additional documents that you may have which will help support your case

Worse case scenario, they ask for documents that you don't have that day and then they have to re-do the interview..which is not a good thing..You never know what they would ask for!

Best case scenario, they ask for documents, and you have them all ready. Or if they don't ask, at least you can say that you have them with you....:)

Lol..reminds me of when I went for my AOS interview years ago. I had bought with me 2-3 bags of additional evidence, which included 6 years worth of photos, e-mail, letters, cards, phone bills, etc. that we had to prove our relationship....

And all they wanted mainly wanted to see were our recent wedding photos, even though I offered to show everything else..

Oh well at least I can say that I was approved! No regrets about bringing the extra evidence at all!

Will do the same next time too, in terms of bringing in extra evidence, when I go for my citizenship interview.

Lol...heck, I'll even bring the new baby too! Stinky diapers and all....rofl.... :rofl:

Again, "better safe than sorry", right?

Hope this helps. Good luck on your interview and the rest of your immigration journey too!
