What will they ask in a green card marriage interview?

On Behalf of | Feb 5, 2024 | Immigration And Naturalization

A green card marriage interview is sometimes conducted when a non-citizen has gotten married to a U.S. citizen. The person who does not have permanent residency status is trying to use their marriage in order to obtain a green card.

This is certainly a legal process, but the government may be concerned about potential fraud. They don’t want people to pretend to be married when they are just attempting to make it easier for someone to get a green card. So what are they going to ask you if you have to go through a green card marriage interview?

Details about your life

You can’t study for this type of interview because the interviewer is just trying to determine the legitimacy of your relationship. As a result, they’ll probably just ask you general questions that relate to your life together, such as:

  • What are your evening routines after work? 
  • Who does most of the chores around the house? 
  • Where did the two of you first meet? 
  • What happened during the proposal? 
  • Have you met each other’s extended families? 
  • What are your plans for the future, such as career plans or plans to have children together?

At the same time, it may be wise to provide additional documentation showing that your relationship is legitimate. This could include financial statements, mail showing that you share an address or even just pictures of the two of you together on social media. Anything you can do to show that your relationship is legitimate is beneficial, and you should always make sure that you understand exactly what legal steps to take while working through this complex process.
