You and your partner are well on your way to obtaining a marriage green card. It’s been a long process but the reward of being a permanent citizen in the U.S. is just around the corner. You have one final hurdle to navigate, the green card interview.
You’re anxious about this because you know that the stakes are so high. You want to make sure that it goes perfectly. In reality, it probably won’t go perfectly because no human or family is completely perfect. What U.S Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officers will be looking for is honesty. Outlined below are a few important things to keep in mind.
What if you don’t know the answer?
It’s not a nice feeling to be put on the spot by a question that you do not know the answer to. In such a scenario, it may be tempting to take a guess in the hope that you get it right. Nonetheless, it’s important to avoid this temptation and admit that you simply do not know. USCIS officers won’t expect you to know everything and they will appreciate an honest answer much more than something that has been made up.
What if you find the questions too personal?
USCIS officers are going to want to gain some insight into your personal life and your relationship. They may ask you questions that at first seem too personal. Remember, none of this is done to try and make you feel uncomfortable, it’s simply to gauge the type of person you are as well as the authenticity of your relationship.
Having legal guidance behind you during the immigration process can make things much easier. Before you know it, you and your spouse can move on to the next chapter of enjoying your lives in the U.S. together.
