Hey everyone,

 

Just a quick question. We have our AOS interview on Wednesday and have all of our documents and copies ready to go. I just wanted to check whether you guys think it would be OK to bring our home accordion file with us, which has everything we need for the interview in different sections. It would be instead of a thick (thick!) packet of papers secured by a bulldog clip, which would have us flicking through pages to find things to present.

With the accordion file we can go straight to to the appropriate section, pull out the files, present, and then if they request copies we will have a separate packet of 'copies', labeled with post-it notes, ready to flick through and hand over.

 

I guess my question is whether it is appropriate to rock up to the interview with a big 'ol accordion file in hand, and whether it would look/seem unprofessional to be opening it and flicking through it when the officer asks for particular documentation. Am I overthinking it??

 

Thanks for your help!

We brought an accordion file just in case for my wife's AOS interview. I personally would rather be over prepared than not  having the document if asked.

 

FWIW, we did have one of those mini stoke interview in which my wife and I were separated at the beginning but that's not a common practice for most folks so YMMV. In the end, all the interviewer ever looked at were some pictures we brought and asking about them.

Thank you! That's great to hear.

 

What was the stoke interview exactly? They just separate you and ask you questions to corroborate your answers? Like, when and how you met and things like that?

 

Really appreciate your response, thanks again!

Instead of interviewing both of you are the beginning, they separate you and ask one person questions followed by interview the other person to see if they provide the same answer. Normally they do this if they don't believe your relationship is legit.

How spooky!

Though I guess only really if it's not legit in the first place!

 

Thanks again for your reply. We're really looking forward to just having it all over and done with!
