Green Card Interview

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Folks:

 

We are about to go for our green card interview, and we are both a little bit nervous about it.  Can anyone tell me about what to expect in that interview?  How difficult is it?  What should we know before going?  What kind of questions are asked and we sort of evidence do we need?

 

Thanks,

 

Chris

It's ok to be nervous, but if you two are truly a couple, you should be confident that your answers will be in line with it. My wife and I just had our interview. We were not nervous because we are a couple and out life reflects that!!!

We didn't have our interview yet so I can't share any of my own experience, but from the experiences I've read on VJ it kinda depends on the officer. As Socalked said, if you're a real couple don't worry about it (and yes, it's okay to be nervous! :) )

According to other peoples stories some people basically have smalltalk for 10 minutes and get recommended for approval where others get 10-20 in depth questions. Some people get interviewed together where others get interviewed separate.
Also, keep in mind that these people are just doing their job and understand if you forget something or that you're nervous since it's your future in their hands. One person on VJ mentioned a different engagement date then her spouse did (they had separate interviews), the officer understood completely that it was nerves (it was prob off by a few days) So as long as your marriage is legitimate it's okay. 

 

I also read tips online to not study any answers, since it can come off a little practiced and that can raise some red flags. Of course you can discuss some questions with your spouse before the interview to be well prepared :) Hope this calms your nerves a little bit!

Is okay to be nervous but like other said if your relationship is real it will surely reflect, me and  my wife were not even prepared for our interview because we went to their office for something else and before we knew what is happening we are set for interviews and we did interview without having any documents with us,  all we have is my passport and drivers license and I got approved because of the chemistry between me and my wife. So just be yourself that day good luck
