I have interview for AOS coming in July. My wife and I speak Russian at home as I speak Russian fluently. I almost never heard her speaking English as she is ashamed speaking English in my presence. However, people say that she is decent even though they may be playing nice. What level of English is required for AOS interview? Should I hire interpreter? If yes, any suggestions how?

I had to have a translator just to get the marriage license. Unfortunately they sent us away the first time because i thought I could translate for him because i've translated every paper document and for every other bureaucratic agency like social security and driver's license. In any case, it had to be a non-family member translator because it was a 'legal contract'.

I think for AOS you do need a translator if she cannot understand and respond in English yet. I would try to start practicing with her to see her skill level. You might want to practice anticipated questions anyway. Do you or she have any friends that are bi-lingual? The person I found to translate for the license is a friend and her French was much worse than mine and my husband's but she got us through the required dialogue (with me whispering at her). I will probably ask someone different for AOS if hubs still can't speak very well at that point.
