AOS interview, overstay

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



I am hoping to gather any anecdotes and experiences to better prepare for my wife's AOS interview. She has overstayed her H2B Visa which is forgiven when marrying USC (me).


We are pretty comfortable with questions about our marriage, relationship..etc. We are just more or less feeling unprepared for any questions regarding the "overstay" piece. 

If anyone was ever in a similar situation and can share some insight in to how their interview went, that is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much. 🙏


FYI, we met around the second year of her overstay, she has overstayed about 5 yrs.

One of the questions on the I-485 is if you have ever overstayed. Presumably she ticked "yes" on the form and then will say "yes" if they ask this one. They don't ask every single one of those I-485 questions but a good amount of them. Unlikely for them to focus on that. They're mostly concerned with determining that you're a real couple.
