Marriage Based Green Card Interview Tips
This guide should be helpful to people preparing for their green card interview.
Know Your ApplicationThe officer will review all content previously indicated in your petition for permanent residency. It is imperative that you are familiar with content from all forms (I-130, I-485, G-325A, & I-864) for both you and your spouse.
Review Your HistoryTo prove your eligibility for adjustment (i.e. you entered the country legally on a valid visa) and a good faith marriage, the officer can ask a variety of questions. These questions will include information about how you met, where you met, your relationship with each other's families, your favorite things to do, your last meal together, your daily routine, your children's doctors information, and other day-to-day details about your shared life.
Attend the InterviewOn the day of the interview, be sure to dress professionally and conservatively. Also, arrive and check-in early. to the local USCIS office. Be patient as the wait time may seem excessive.
Remain Confident & CalmThe worst thing you can do at a green card interview is get so nervous and anxious that you answer questions wrong. This may come off as fraudulent to the officer. Just remember to remain calm and collected and realize that you are legally eligible for this U.S. benefit and you are married to your spouse in ultimate good faith.
