Interview in the morning..last minute question!!

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Heading to my interview in the morning and I have done some searches here trying to find out if I need to take pictures to prove ongoing marriage relationship like I did for K3 interview and like I sent with my AOS supporting documents. I didn't send any with the N-400 and I have a huge and very inclusive stack of paper documentation I am taking with me tomorrow, but will I need to take photos too? Many thanks to anyone who can answer!

Yes dear

You MUST carry a lot of Photograph of your wedding ceremony all the function and rituals, it is VERY VERY IMPORTANT.

In most of the CR1 interview they just ask question and ask for wedding photograph thats all.

Sure didn't want to see me when my wife went in for citizenship, nor any photos, just my joint papers with my wife. Kind of reminded me of Nazi Germany, let me see your papers. But they did let me go in during the AOS stage and the IO enjoyed seeing the photos of our wedding ceremony.

Really didn't have any papers for the AOS, the American Patriot Act prevented me from doing anything to share my wealth with my wife, that they understood, but sure need those papers for citizenship. Unless you wait the full five years, then don't need anything except your green card, check, application, and two passport photos they no longer use.

it is a case by case type of thing, as well as differs between officers. Some officers MAY request additional evidence and others may not. The N-400 is for citizenship and that is the focus. If they feel that there is something "fishy" about your marriage, they might ask but as long as they didn't specifically request additional evidence, then most likely they will not be asking for it during the interview.

When I went to my interview, I took a bunch of documents with me just in case, but never got asked for anything...

Good luck!

Thanks guys! I have tons of paper "evidence" and I have printed a few photos to take along as well. When I was doing my double check last night, I just couldn't recall ever seeing that anyone on these forums listed photos as something they took to the Citizenship interview. ...but in the end, it can't hurt to have some along just in case. I'm as ready as I'll ever be!! :D My husband is now urging me to get ready and get in the car because all my paperwork isn't worth a hoot if I miss the appointment LOL

It is NOT a must contrary to what one of the responses here said - they are interested in proof of marriage and sure a few photos together couldn't hurt, but stronger evidence is joint tax returns and other financial things co-mingled. I brought my husband's id and birth cert even along with me and was not asked for 1 single bit of evidence about him at all, just the marriage cert (of course) and most of the financial evidence.
