Once a person has gone through the process of speaking with an immigration attorney and completing the initial green card application, the last stage of their application will be an interview which will complete the process.
Anyone who gets a letter informing them their interview is coming up should take the necessary steps to prepare for the green card interview to ensure that everything goes according to plan, and there are no unexpected problems that arise along the way. The main purpose of the interview is to make sure that a person’s marriage is authentic, and it was not based on fraud. The questions in the interview will be focused on the relationship the two individuals have, any plans the couple has together, and the daily activities they undergo as a married couple.
Common questions asked during the green card interview process include:
- How long did you know each other before getting married?
- How did you meet?
- How did your proposal occur?
- What are the details of your wedding?
- Did you take a honeymoon trip?
- What are your roles in the home?
- How does your day start?
The interviewer may also ask personal questions such as which side of the bed a person sleeps on and the medical details of their spouse. Once again, the main purpose of the interview is to make sure that the marriage is authentic and that it was not done simply for obtaining the green card and coming to the United States. If a person wants to do well, they should make sure they have all important dates and events in mind so they can smoothly answer the necessary questions.
Tips for giving a marriage green card interview in San Antonio, Texas
The most important thing a person should keep in mind during the interview is that they should remain as honest as possible through the process. A person should be honest and open and try to relax. Not many people know every detail about their spouse if one does not know the answer they should honestly answer to the best of their ability. If the officer asks a very personal question that a person finds offensive, they should speak their mind and politely let the officer know and, in most cases, the officer will understand and proceed onwards.
