You got through the extensive
application. This is a feat in and of itself. The Green Card application
requires attention to detail regarding its specific requirements. It also
requires providing extensive supplemental material. Once your application
is complete, however, you will most likely still have to participate in a
Green Card interview. Most, although not all, applicants for a Green Card
must attend an interview. If you are outside of the U.S., you will most
likely attend the interview at a U.S. consulate. If you are in the U.S.,
you will likely attend your interview at a local U.S. Citizenship and
Immigration Services (USCIS) office. The interview is an important part of
the Green Card application and is the final step in the process.
How to Prepare for a Green Card Interview
The Green Card interview is an important step in the application process.
During the interview, your application materials will be reviewed and any
relevant questions regarding your application or documentation submitted
may be asked. Do not be complacent about the interview. It is important to
not only be prepared, but to be prepared to put your best foot forward.
Before attending your interview, review your application. It is most
certainly going to come up at some point in the interview. It is also a
good time to check and see if you need to make any changes to the
information you provided in your application. If anything has changed, even
something like a change in address, be sure to bring that to the attention
of the interviewer and bring original documentation to support the update.
During the interview, try to stay calm and maintain a level-headed
demeanor. Keeping things polite and to the point will go a long way in your
favor. Immigration officers who conduct these interviews have high volumes
of interviews to conduct each day. They want you to be prepared,
well-organized and give concise answers. Additionally, be sure to always
tell the truth. If you get nervous or flustered, take a minute to collect
yourself. You do not even want to lie because your nerves will get the best
of you. Lying during the interview can have serious consequences.
If you are applying for a marriage-based green card, your interview will
look quite different than that for an applicant of a different category.
Marriage-based green card applicants tend to be put under must more
scrutiny than others. You will need to supply many different forms of
evidence to prove that your marriage is valid and that you are really
sharing your life with someone. You will need things such as wedding
photos, statements from joint financial accounts, family photos with your
children, and other evidence of an established relationship. On top of
this, you will be asked questions about your relationship and about your
spouse. You may need to recount the details of your first date or answer
questions about how domestic tasks are divided between the two of you.
