No rings

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We have our AOS Interview next week. We don't have any engagement/wedding rings. We plan to get some, but unfortunately we won't have them in time for the interview. We were thinking to buy some cheap bands in the meantime just for interview. Or does it really matter? I know some married people don't wear rings at all, but I don't want them thinking this marriage isn't valid because we aren't wearing rings. Has anybody experienced this type of situation before. Any advice?

Don't get cheap fake bands, it looks worse than having none at all. You are not required to have wedding rings.

Like Harpa said, there's no requirement to have rings. No government agency can regulate what type of jewelry you choose to or choose not to wear.


“The minute I heard my first love story I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was.
Lovers don't finally meet somewhere.
They're in each other all along.”

The only requirement is that you have a Marriage Certificate. PERIOD. The woman does not have to take the husband's surname. The man does not have to take the wife's surname. devil.gif At this early stage it is hard to have any co-mingling of finances. We did have a joint tax return and she was on most of my benefits. The interview went quick and smooth. You live your lives as you see fit and what makes sense for the two of you and not to satisfy someone at the USCIS whose own marriage could not stand up to the same scrunity.

Good luck,

Dave

Don't stress out over it. If the immigration officer really asks, you can point out that Prince William doesn't wear one. ;) But seriously, I doubt highly they will inquire about it. Your evidence should stand on its own.
