SPOUSE ID FOR GREEN CARD INTERVIEW

22 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Please can anyone help as my nephew is preparing for his Green Card Interview he discovered that his wife only ID which is State ID is still has her formal address  not current place they both stay as husband and wife. Now they got letter for interview in two weeks at the USCIS office. My concern is that can they show up with different addresses on their ID as husband and wife. Marriage was legit and wife never change address on her ID to reflect the  current resident with her husband. Any  suggestions as to what they can do now that Interview in two weeks. will that raise unnecessary red flags.

An identification card is not needed for an interview.

They need ID to get in the building and a standard part of the interview is asking for ID copies if they are not in the packet already. (even if somehow she gets in and if its asked she has to tell the truth about what the address is on her ID so theres no point in being 'creative' by attempting to 'leave it at home')

Yes he has international ID, but his US citizen wife ID still showing her formal address instead of current residential address they both live now and at  the time of applying for Change of Status and I-130. Do we need to get a new ID for his wife, interview in two weeks. And beside, the three references letters from people that know's them have to be notarized?

She can (should) update the address on her license. My state doesn't issue the new license the same day, but you get a temp copy until the new one arrives in the mail (took less than a week for me to receive). She may even be able to do it online, if she doesn't want to walk in.

Regardless, she needs to change it. In our state, you can update it online and don't need to update the physical copy. If the address, etc. isn't up to date, it can affect coverage for car insurance, etc. If she hasn't updated it, she needs to do it. There's a small grace period to update it, but she's way over.

Are these new affidavits or ones previously submitted? USCIS accepts affidavits,  notarized has more weight but if they aren't its still ok as evidence. A new ID would be good to have regardless of the interview.

Whether she changes her ID or not, they should have other evidence they share the same residence, like business mail, utility bills, and lease etc.  The driver license issue is not a deal killer.
