At least one person mentioned being asked where in the US will you be residing (expecting the address on the application). Or simply, will you be residing at <address>?

My POE was in Orlando, November 2005. If I remember correctly I wasn’t really asked any questions. The officer took my brown envelope and passport and asked that I wait in a waiting area behind the immigration stations. I was told my visa would have to be processed and that it would take time. :P

After waiting I don’t remember exactly how long now maybe 15 – 30 minutes another officer came into the waiting area and told me that I should marry within 90 days and I shouldn’t leave the country until I had filed additional paperwork. I was given back my passport which had a USCIS stamp on it showing the date I entered the country and the date I had to marry by and my K-1 visa status.. the same was also stamped on my white I-94.

That was essentially it, no problems and no questions asked, just some waiting.

Good Luck! :D

I cleared immigration in Dublin. Their reaction was: "so, you are getting married... awwww, how sweet" ;) The only question I can recall was about the date of our wedding, but this might have been just part of small talk.

I did get grilled by American Airlines agent, though. It seems that flying with a one-way ticket is a good way to attract attention...

POE Miami,

Went through regular line, took fingerprints, checked paperwork / passport and gave them brown envelope and waited about 10 minutes in a special room where other immigrants were waiting. We were told we had to marry within 90 days. I asked the officer if we could get the stamped work permit and he had no idea what I was talking about so I said later and we left.

Good luck.

10Yr GC arrived 07/02/09 - Naturalization is next

The drama begins - again!

And now the drama ends - they took the Green card . . .

From what I remember from Anton comming through the POE in Houston, other spouses and family members were told that non English speaking people coming through should be ok because they had interpreters in many languages.

Only if it was some rare language would one of the family members be able to go back and translate. Like I said that was in Houston (IAH) so I would imagine JFK, being a bigger airport would be similar. so I wouldn't even worry about it. :thumbs:
