I am international, married to a US citizen, and we will have our green card interview in a few months. I have many international friends from all over the world, who went through the same, and all of them got their green card with no problem. They all told me that their interview was simple; they all went to the interview room together with their US spouse, and the interviewer only asked them simple questions like "Where did you all meet for the first time?" "When did you get married?" "How long have you been together" "When is your spouse's birthday" and so on.  The thing is, they all got interviewed together with their spouse in the same room.  They all had their interview in different states in the US.

 

So I was thinking this was going to the common way of the interview. Now I live in a state different from any of my friends, and I have my immigration lawyer who prepared all documents for me, and he is also coming to the interview with me and my spouse. But he told me that at the interview they will split me and my spouse and have an interview separately asking the same questions, and check if our answers will match. Not because we might look suspicious, but because that is what they do to all married couples who will have the interview in this specific USCIS in our state.

 

Is that true that in some USCIS, they will split you and your spouse REGARDLESS of whether the marriage seems genuine or fake? What if some answers don't match? for example, "What is your spouse's favorite food" or something like this is very difficult to make answers match, if your spouse likes multiple dishes. Or in this kind of split interview, do they mostly ask a question that can have only one answer? Such as "When is your spouse's birthday?", "Where do you all meet?", "When did you get married?" etc?

Yes, there are cases where they interview together and cases where they interview separate. In my case was together but there are stories here from people who interviewed separate.

 

My answer to your question is simple. If you relationship is legit, you have nothing to worry about. 

 

They normally ask for facts of your lives, where did you get married, when did you guys meet etc etc etc....I`m sure you both know all of this  and important dates if that comes up. Bring pictures, proof of wedding, engagement, family photos etc. Look at my review and it will give you an idea.

 

Dont worry.

May I ask which state you live in? It only took you about 5 months before the interview after the applications received.

It took most of my friends about a year from the application till the interview. Your case seems faster.

 

Also may I ask what you brought in to the interview as a proof of bona fide marriage?
