Finally I-751 Interview....

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We got our interview date for next month. No RFE. Anyone gone through interview that can share what the process is or advice as to what to expect? Interview notice just said to bring government ID's, all travel docs used to enter the USA, Lease or Mortgage, financial records, complete joint federal/state returns, insurance policies, joint utility bills. Though we have submitted all this, we plan to take them all with us for the interview.

 

P.S

You all rock and this is a great site!!!

Be prepared to tell the story of your relationship and get all the dates and places right.  Make sure you can do that sitting together, and can give the same answer if you are asked separately.  Practice asking each other personal questions such as:

 

How did you meet?

When did you first decide to be a couple?

What are your living arrangements? 

 

If you have circumstances that are a little unusual (you live with family, you have lived apart for work or school, you have age or religion differences, etc.) then practice the answers with each other.  Ask the same question several ways.  The goal is for you both to have the same answers.

 

Make sure you know about each others' families and friends.

Make sure you both understand all the papers you bring with you.

 

If one of you has issues speaking and comprehending English, take a translator with you.

 

Bonafide couples will have no problems at the interview unless you are totally clueless about each other!  The best approach is to be confident in your love for each other, and confident with your documentation.

 

Best of luck - and I'm glad your journey is progressing!
