Marriage in usa, cr1 interview

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello! 

My interview is coming soon and I’m rehearsing possible questions in my head. We got married in usa in may 2017, while i was on esta, i spent there my 90 day allowance and we got married 5 days before i left the country. It wasn’t planned, we threw everything together in maybe a week and had small city hall ceremony. I’m just thinking of our situation and if anyone has done the same, I’m worried that they wouldn’t just “assume” . I have a lot of bona fide evidence ready with me and we were friends since 2012, but english isn’t my first language so i worried about saying something that might sound wrong

You are way over thinking this. London will ask a few questions like "How did you meet your wife? Where does she work? Where will you be living?" It's a short chat and no evidence or photos to show them. 

 

Curious...Where were you born? Nationality?

Lol I think so too, but want to be prepared just in case. I'm from Lithuania. We didn't include any evidence with i130 so was thinking they might want to have a look during interview.

You know it's okay to marry in the US while you are visiting if that is your worry.

No problem at all as long as they don't overstay and go out of status.  Even then there are ways to resolve that.
