i751: Interview or no interview

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

What proportion of people get approved with/without interviews? Don't know.

I guess our approvals come via mail if, no interview is requested. We got an RFE after 8 months, responded to it, received approval via email/test messages approval (read our review and timeline).

Are interviews random? Seem to be.

Good luck on your immigration journey.

Hey Pitya

Thanks for your response. Your comments under you ROC were interesting. I'm curious if I will receive an RFE... However, I was capable of providing solid information. For example:

- Combined tax returns,

- Combined Mortgage on our residential property

- Combined Insurance, Bank accounts, Credit Cards, Utilities, Car titles

- Sonogram of our unborn child

- And several vacations overseas to see family that lasted up to 2 months in length.

- Plus photos (but i heard they are not very valuable)

Did you have similar "valuable" evidence ? Or do you not own a property together or share bank accounts?

Photos are very valuable. But you have good solid evidence. Good luck.

Your evidence looks solid.

Evidence of financial co-mingling is pretty much slam dunk - Especially if you have a paper trail dating from the time you received your green card up until the time of filing. The thought is, anyone can write affidavits and take nice pictures together, but few would trust their money/house/car/credit with someone they weren't married to.

I just received an RFE. My wife an I were separated for a while, then moved back in together, so we've had gaps in our joint insurance plans, bank statements, residences etc. We sent in almost 20 pictures clearly showing us with family, as well as vacationing everywhere from London to Lisbon to Hawaii to New York to Kansas (yes, Kansas) to Iceland to the Grand Canyon. The RFE states they want more evidence of financial co-mingling. Financial co-mingling is key. Slam dunk. The kid helps too. Congrats!

And are interviews random? My best guess is "not entirely." If they feel like they can't figure something out, or they're missing something, they'll issue an RFE. If they feel like they want to "see you in person" for any reason, they'll ask for an interview. If both, they'll give you an RFE, then an interview.

Are interviews random?

I don't know how random the interviews are. Maybe there really are "random" people selected but I pretty much knew I would need an interview. My spouse and I are no longer together and we don't have kids (neither one of us can biologically have kids), we don't have wills, we don't have joint bank accounts and we don't have joint ownership of a house...he already owned his own house. We do have joint health insurance, joint auto insurance, a joint loan which is very substantial (as big as some people's mortgages), tons of cards, letters, emails, photos, affidavits. We very definitely had a real marriage so I hope they believe us when we go for the interview. I just got the notice yesterday and the interview scheduled for July 8. I got the notice in the mail. No email an no text, even though I am signed up for those alerts.
