We got a notification on Monday and that my wife has been scheduled for her AOS interview.  The letter hasn't arrived yet but we called USCIS and got the date and time.  My wife's english is very conversational - i would say a 7 or 8 on a scale of 1-10.  However, when I was doing research on the AOS interview it appears that they will go through the list of questions filled out on the AOS - all of those crazy ones.  For example one of the questions has words such as "Servitude, peonage, debt bondage.  Another "aided, abetted, conspired or colluded".  I could go on and on.   I dont even know what some of them mean lol.  My question is are you allowed to bring a translator to the interview and if so would you recommend it?  She can obviously understand and answer the basic questions like how we met, when we got married, what my family is like, what we do, etc etc. I am just concerned about those questions on the i485.  THanks for any advice.

The interview notice should tell you that an interpreter can be brought to the interview.  I worked with another member and they hired an interpreter listed in the Pennsylvania state legal registry for interpreters.  That being said, another thing you could do is to review those yes/no questions with her before the interview to make sure she understands them.  It is really up to you and your and her peace of mind.  Back when Katya had her AOS interview, her English was similar, and we did it without an interpreter.

 

Good Luck!

I would just practice. Do a lot of practice. Look up the meaning of those words if you and/or her don't know what it means. I would say get a dictionary out, but dictionary probably doesn't exist anymore, so just google the word. Then just do a lot of practice, mock interview,... If you're sick with yourself being the interview, get someone else to be the interviewer and keep practicing. You will be fine.
