What Is Asked In a Green Card Marriage Interview?
There are a variety of questions that you will be asked during your marriage interview in order to complete your application for a green card and ultimately be approved and granted permanent residency in the United States. Many of the questions are very straightforward, such as the name of your spouse, a history of your relationship, the names of their family members, and other basic relationship things.
In addition, you will be asked questions about your marriage, such as details about your wedding, information about your wedding rings, how the proposal went, where you had dinner after the ceremony, and more. Essentially, these questions are intended to give the interviewer a better idea of the strength of your relationship and the legitimacy of your marriage.
While you may find these questions irritating or overly-simplistic, it is important to remember why you are being interviewed: in order for the immigration officer to approve your marriage and therefore approve your marriage visa and permanent resident card, they need to be certain that your marriage is not fraudulent. Many people attempt to use the legal act of marriage as a tool to get a permanent residence card but may be acting out the marriage in a fraudulent manner. This interview is to ascertain that your marriage is not just for the intention of being granted a green card.
As such, you may find that the interviewer asks more detailed questions, such as what the bedroom that you and your spouse share looks like, information about your spouse’s employment and their daily commute, questions about your relationship with your spouse’s family such as the last time you interacted with them, and more.
Finally, the interviewer may want to visit your home, speak with neighbors, and ask for members of your community to confirm that you are, in fact, in a legitimate relationship and that your marriage is legitimate.
Will I Need To Do An Interview For My IR-1 or CR-1 Visa Application?
The interview is the final step in your marriage green card process, and you will absolutely need to complete the interview before you are granted your Permanent Residence Card. The interview is not generally very long, but it is an extremely important step for you to take. We will work with you to make sure that you are prepared for your interview, and that you are maximizing your chances of success.
As you can imagine from some of the questions mentioned above, this interview will make or break your application process. You may have provided all of the required information for your application, completed all of the necessary documents, and answered correctly on every line item, but if you are unable to pass the interview, you will not be awarded a green card.
