What Can I Expect at my Immigration Interview

When applying for a marriage based green card you will most likely have to attend an immigration interview. The reason behind this interview is that the government is concerned about fraudulent marriages and wants to make sure that your marriage is valid. The government has gotten a lot stricter due to the fact that so many people have tried to take advantage of the green card marriage system. As a result, legitimate applicants are running into trouble with the process despite their pure intentions. Occasionally, these people are even accused of fraud.

The marriage based green card application generally includes an interview with both the U.S. citizen and the applicant. Questions will be asked in order to determine whether or not they are telling the truth about your marital status. These questions can be quite detailed and are often embarrassingly personal. Unfortunately this part of the process feels quite intrusive and that is why it beneficial to retain an immigration attorney to prepare you for the interview. With that said, the interview isn’t as bad as you probably picture it. Frequently both parties are interviewed together and tone of the meeting is relaxed. Alternatively, if fraud is suspected, each party may be questioned separately and the interview will feel much more like an interrogation.
