AOS interview

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi....

A friend of mine got here on a tourist visa, got married before the visa expired, and she has the AOS interview next week. In the folder she put only a few photos and the joint bank account as evidence ( her husband's acc. where he gets paid). Do you think this is enough evidence for her to pass the interview and get aGC?? She also has a lawyer with her who will be present...

Thank you all for any answers!

Her husband needs to be at the interview. If he doesn't its quite likely she will be denied. Even with a lawyer.

Those two pieces of evidence is all she has? I'd say she would probably need more proof of a bonafide marriage. Do they have joint leases, insurance policies, car titles etc...? If so I would highly recommend taking those as well.


My USCIS Journey...

 

I had an I-485 filing already submitted through an employment-based application. Post-marriage, I submitted an I-130, which after being approved was interfiled with the existing I-485.

I-130 Timeline:

04/04/13 - Day 000 - I-130 packet sent via FedEx

04/05/13 - Day 001 - I-130 packet delivered

05/19/14 - Day 410 - Email sent asking for case status update

06/04/14 - Day 426 - Response received that I-485 was transferred to NBC

06/05/14 - Day 427 - I-485 updated to "sent to local office for processing"

Her husband will be there too. She doesnt have any other evidence, no proof that she came here without intent to get married, and for the relationship, only what i wrote above....

I posted here because this site helped me alot when i did the whole AOS thing, and i had A TON of evidence, so when she mentioned what she has, i started laughing....

I mean those absolutely do not prove in my opinion that they have a strong relationship. He refused adding her on the life insurance, 401k , house etc etc. I honestly did not know what to tell her except good luck because she's gonna need it. She didnt want to listen to me either when i mentioned more evidence...So i was curious how things work now, year after I did my AOS. Maybe its a little bit easier?? I sure hope so, for her sake....

Hi,

It depends on how long she was waiting for the interview. If she waited for 5+ months then its a reasonable period for her to gather more proof such as joint bills, house lease, more picture etc etc .. She does not have to send everything but during the interview she has to take every little evidence with her. She can organize the pictures into a small book so the officer won't find it hard to look at it. Pictures from the wedding, with the family & friends are always a Bonus. affidavits from friends/family stating that they have a real relationship is also great.

Her husband should be there of course and she may be questioned about intent to immigrate when she had her tourist visa and if she is asked about it then she should have the right answer. Basically, if she has a true bona fide marriage then she has nothing to worry about.

Good luck

They haven't made it any easier no. It doesn't appear that she even has proof of living with him. Thats a HUGE issue.
