Bring another certified copy of your marriage certificate and anything else you think will help show a bona fide relationship since submitting the appication. If nothing has changed then take nothing. You do need to bring a form of ID which for us was her passport, and the I-94 to be turned in. The questions we were asked were:"Name, DOB, place of birth, name of parent's" and "Have you ever...." These are the questions and information on the application. As each question was answered she placed a big red check moark next to that item on the application. Ten minutes later we were out of there. Arrive early.

Good luck,

Dave

Take your whole file, the orginal of your marriage certificate and a copy in case they want another copy, they will review your application after swearing you in and ask general questions. They did ask if my wife has ever been a prostitute, she did not know what that was so when I explained it she hit me.


In Arizona its hot hot hot.

When i went to our interview they asked very simple questions; How did we meet? How long have we been together? nothing to be to nervous about. I would bring a copy of everything you sent them and i would bring pictures of your wedding as well as other family gatherings. They will also ask you the questionson your application.

Good Luck!

Thanks for that info. Very helpful. Did they really ask you all those questions? That's a lot,

They asked a few.

Who bought the wedding ring.

If my spouse know my parents

If my parents lives in an apartment or house

How we met.

What year?

when was the last time my spouse talked to my mother?

why my parents didn't come to my wedding.

The agent was very tough on my wife (USC) but polite to me. they asked her those questions with no time space between questions and answers. We were interviewed separately.

Yes, that a lot of questions, they don't ask all of those questions to the same person or couple, but they DO ask them randomly.

Good Luck.

PS. My entire interview time was less than 25 minutes, remember we were interviewed separately.

Bring everything listed on the I-797 AND bring everything your fiance took to the Embassy interview. Our IO asked for e-mails, letrters and cards from when we first started dating and photos of our time together before she came to the U.S.! I have never read of anyone having a problem for bringing too much stuff! Good luck!

Same with us....we were in and out in about 10 minutes....easy interview...the only thing she asked us more was when she looked at our scrapbook she asked which vacation was our favorite (we went to cali/disney...New York City...we went to Vegas....Vail and lttle places near by) and we answered NY and she sent us out--- telling us 'I will need to do some further review I will send you a decision in the mail and will notify you if I need anything else" Regardless of that we got an approval about a week later :)
