It has been many years since a client of mine has had a stokes interview. It took 1 to 3 months to get it scheduled. It will be video recorded. Each client answered a set of questions separately. In my case they were asked some personal questions and they had similar answers so it was approved.

Had one not too long ago.. Took 3+ months to get it scheduled.

Clients were separated, with each being asked the same questions separately while being videotaped. Clients were asked about 74 questions each, some highly intrusive and of a personal nature, to which I had to object and instruct the clients not to answer. A supervisor had to be called since the officers ( there were 2) threatened to terminate the interview and deny the petition if client refused to answer .

At the end of each interview the client had to read all the questions and answers and sign. I read them first and pointed to some answers having been inaccurately recorded by the officer..

Clients were ultimately granted, for it was a genuine marriage and they were very well prepared.
